    I worked at Express part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good discount off merchandise (initial purchase upon hire is pretty high), middle of the road pay for a sales associate at a clothing chain such as Express

    Cons

    I worked as a seasonal sales associate here, and though I only worked for one month, I hated every minute of it. They made us wear headsets, and every 3-4 hours, near the end of every "goal" period, the manager would chastise us for not selling enough, despite the fact that very few people came into the store during those times. I think the worst part was that it wasn't a face-to-face verbal communication. It was an extremely passive aggressive warning in the headset that you could not escape.


  2. "Good if you're into fashion"
