I worked at Express part-time for more than a year

Pros

The people are nice, the company's pretty laid back and the hours are flexible

Cons

Unless you work at a big store you won't get hours. Management schedules too many On Call shifts, which are a big joke.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lose the On Call shifts, people don't even respect them. I went on vacation when I had on call shifts once, because I knew they would never call me in.

    I have been working at Express full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The discount was awesome! 30% for PT, 40% for FT, and an additional 15% when they're feeling frisky.

    Cons

    Most of the managers are clueless about how to actually run a store. If the weekly meeting is about every number is down, maybe something should be changed? Communication between managers and associates is limited on purpose because "associates don't need to understand why we're doing this." Too much gossip, not enough work being done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. Come down off the throne and get to know the little people so everyone can work TOGETHER.

    I worked at Express part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is a discount, good people to work with, and often very nice clothes to work with and buy. I wouldn't recommend working there full time though.

    Cons

    Not very good pay, hours can be very random, and often not enough people working to cover the entire store, so you have to spread yourself thin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay, or allow a commission.
