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

Pros

Great on-site training in sales, customer service and even management. Great employee discounts (especially on extra discount weekends), decent pay and a sense of camaraderie among all workers.

Cons

Stingy management at times and a loud work environment. There are opportunities for advancement, but they are few and far between and usually only come after years of company employment.

    I have been working at Express full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    clothing and discount is great and we can wear jeans to work every day
    I learned a lot about retail here

    Cons

    they set high expectations but don't really show you how to meet them.
    Some employees are extremely lazy but nothing is said to them, which leaves even more work for everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees know that they have a chance to be promoted to give them incentive to work hard.
    Don't expect the same behaviors to produce better results each year, change the behaviors if you want to see growth. Give stores more payroll. It's hard to give a good customer experience on two man coverage.
