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

    Pros

    If you like working and talking to people then this is the job for you. I am the type of person that likes to talk to people so it really made work enjoyable.

    Cons

    Low pay. Okay for a for a recent high school graduate but definitely not the pay I would like to receive for the rest of my life.

    Advice to Management

    The pay is low so make sure that associates are being rewarded and/or acknowledged for their hard work.

    I worked at Express part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount, a lot of hours, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Always asked to stay later than scheduled for, a lot of work for little pay, tasks were sometimes unreasonable for the time they wanted it done in, sometimes felt like I was talked down to

    I've worked under multiple store managers, the experience is really based on who the manager is. Sometimes closing the store down meant staying till it was perfect, and sometimes it meant staying till 11 and getting as much done by that time.

    Advice to Management

    Put a little more faith in the sales associates but respect that we have lives outside of express

    Good employ discount, and most people that work there were great! There's a lot of opportunity to grow if you let it.

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

    Pros

    Very Flexible schedule and a nice employee discount. Pretty decent at letting you get extra hours, friendly staff and decent customers

    Cons

    Managers can sometimes be biased on who moves up in the company, the pay is minimum wage, lack of associates and if you're great at your job the managers can tend to take advantage of that and have you do everything like even watch the floor while they are in the back room yet they don't promote you.

    Advice to Management

    Actually promote the people who you see are hard working and dedicated to their jobs, and teach them the skills to leadership positions to move up.

    Great company to work for! Employees are appreciated and noticed when they work hard. You get overtime even if you are a full time employee.

    It's hard to get weekends off. You often work longer than the hours listed on your schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize your employees hard work.
