Pros

    I worked at Express full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great discount. Growing brand. The clothing is easy to sell. The benefits are pretty comparable to most retail companies (for management only).

    Cons

    The pay of the associates is not competitive so the turnover rate is extremely high. The work load is extensive and you typically spend more time "training" new hires than truly developing the associates that have been strictly out of loyalty. As a manager I was paid a decent salary and my benefits were sufficient. The amount of time I spent looking for and training young, under-paid associates was such a waste of time and it makes for a bad company reputation when you only have new hires who have no idea what they are doing manning your floors. Also, associates do not work off of commission so they aren't motivated to meet goals like the management team.

    Advice to Management

    Competitive pay. Lessen workload for associates if you are going to pay them dirt. Raise your wages or pay commission to those who perform well.
