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

    Pros

    management experience, but not full time hour requirements.

    Cons

    Hectic schedule. You get called in often when the store is understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there are enough allocated hours to get things done. We were constantly going over hours in order to run the store properly.

    I worked at Express (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discounts and my coworkers, managers

    Cons

    Not enough hours for many associates... I was lucky to always get called in by my managers but not many did. Eliminate Call-in's I commuted 2 hours to get to work and had to get ready 4 hours before just so they could tell me they didn't need me sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what youre doing. I've never worked in a place where I felt comfortable and respected like I have here. Just work on the call-ins and giving equal hours to everyone :)

    Pros

    This was a great company to work for and the management was on top of their game. Definitely recommend to others.

    When doing door-to-floor (receiving shipment) the process can be a bit unorganized.

    I have been working at Express part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You'll meet a lot of great people (coworkers as well as customers). I've made great friends that I keep in touch with even though I transferred to another store half way across the country.

    Cons

    Demanding hours around the holidays, but you'll make time and a half so it's not all bad.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to keep employees motivated, maybe try and pick employee's brains about possible design ideas because we have first-hand knowledge of what customers like and dislike about our company's clothing.
