I have been working at Express part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

For 5 years, I've worked with very friendly people. All the management at each location I worked were very professional and friendly. If you are competent and show up to work ready to work, they always want to help you and it's hard to get on their bad side unless you don't do your job or skip work.

Once you work enough total hours, everyone is eligible for the retirement plan and company matching. Even part-time sales associates.

Cons

The pay is usually at minimum wage or barely above, but the store asks workers to have higher standards and customer service expertise than most minimum wage jobs would require. Even as a manager, I received barely above minimum wage, and was always working 40 hours a week, but never got full-time benefits or PTO.

Advice to Management

Pay what employees are worth, or at least a livable wage. Especially full-time management employees.
