This company has its ups and downs.

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Express LLC part-time for less than a year

ProsYou get discounts on almost everything which is good, esp because the store itself is kind of expensive. You meet some really awesome people, and you have fun working if you leave all your problems at the door.

ConsYou dont get any hours if sales are low. You can go from 2 days - 2 months without working, and the managers make it seem like it happens all the time. Of course they would say that, they have hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to schedule some more hours even if the sales are low, try to be fair to everyone. Don't just make 1 employee do the grunt work because you don't feel like it

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

An amazing company that gives challenging, yet rewarding work and lots of opportunity to move up.

Brand Co-Manager (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI (US)

I have been working at Express LLC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAll managers and higher-ups want you to succeed. You are provided with a wide variety of tools and are always able to contact peers and other managers for help. There is a true feeling of community from store to store, and from the company as a whole. Also, a very fashionable and friendly atmosphere that always make work fun!

ConsThere are not any cons that I can think of, but if you think this is going to be a simple job, I wouldn't apply. This position requires lots of time, energy, and dedication. If you are lazy this job is not for you.
