    I worked at Express full-time

    Pros

    I absolutely loved everyone I worked with. There were multiple opportunities to do new store openings and do a lot of networking. After working three major retail establishments the back room is by far the best when it comes to structure; the brand guides are easy to execute; and overall I regret leaving this company to work for a competitor.

    Cons

    The only reason I left was because the pay wasn't very high.

    Pros

    Express is awesome. Friendly staff and managers. Fun yet high intensity environment. 10/10 would recommend. I am very happy with my decision.

    Cons

    It can get very busy. Its a high volume store. Sometimes you don't get the exact hours you requested. They expect a lot from you.

  10. "3.5 Years With Express and Still Loving It"

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

    Pros

    Express is the fashion aware brand that makes you feel good about selling their merchandise and promoting their brand. The work environment is fast-paced and multi-faceted, thereby never dull. While team dynamics can vary widely from store to store, being a part of the Sales Lead Team (management) has been very rewarding.

    Cons

    The most common complaint among associates is that the hourly rate is not competitive enough. That said, the work environment is superior in many ways to those brands in which we compete, hence why many, including myself, have stayed on with them for as long as we have.

    Pros

    Smaller store so it's easier to be acquainted and feel like a team at the store which makes work easier.

    Cons

    None, I think my store runs itself very well and the team we have have the stores best interest at heart.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing
