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

Pros

The managers and sales leads at Express are very pleasant to work with. Most of them are very down-to-earth and actually care about their employees. They recognize and praise their employees' hard work and don't have unrealistic expectations.

Cons

The only downside of working at Express was a particular manager who put a lot of pressure on the employees to behave as if we worked for a sales commission, but sometimes you get an unpleasant manager every now and then.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    One of the pros of working at Express as I said before are the individuals. Everyone is very welcoming and open to answering questions. The managers try to be understanding of the associates problems creating an open environment. I only work part-time so the hours change every week which is good because I would get bored of the same routine eventually.

    Cons

    The cons are that the managers can sometimes be a little unprofessional. There was a time when one of the managers was talking about different types of consumers by race and I thought it to be extremely inappropriate.

    Also, the lunch breaks are ridiculous. You have to work 6 1/2 hours before you can get a HALF hour break. They will never give you a full hour, even if you work more than 7 hours. They will break up your break so that it equals an hour. For instance, you get 45 minutes, then a couple hours later they will give you a 15 minute break.

    Lastly, the store hours. The store used to close at 9pm Monday-Saturday and 8pm on Sunday's. Now we close at 10pm Monday-Saturday and 9pm on Sunday's.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees more lunch break time.

    Close the store at a decent hour so we won't get home so late.
