    I worked at Express part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    flexible shifts, fine clothing, store is pretty organized, on time lunch breaks and respect ones religious values.

    Cons

    keep hiring new staff instead of giving shifts to existing employees, the discount doesnt apply to clearance/sale items, some rude managers, and doesnt contribute to providing snacks on boxing day/black Friday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train managers to retain employees.

    Pros

    The best group of people I have ever worked with, and I have worked in various work industries...You have to be a team player; it all about going green on each segment. Great leadership--everyone wants you to succeed. They keep you in the loop. Great training that will help you to make those sales...

    Cons

    Flexible schedule, which can be expected when you work in retail...Overall, it wasn't as bad as it seems, because they try to accommodate my schedule (if you have school, etc...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management, who care about their employees!!!
