    I worked at Express full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun Place to Work Fashionable and Fast Paced. Great Discount. Young environment and people. The company is doing well unlike most retailers they seem to be keeping up with the internet times.

    Cons

    Hard hours. Hard to have a good work/life balance. No loyalty to employees. Worked there for many years with small raises. When new employees hired they would be hired at higher rates and when I got another offer they "couldn't meet that rate"

    Advice to Management

    Let managers have work life balance and be loyal to those who are loyal to you.
