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

    Pros

    Any job can we wonderful if you like youre coworkers, and I did, we were a team. They took a chance on me when I didnt have any experinece working retail.

    Cons

    Hours were few and far between and it was very difficult to get promoted unless you spent most of your pay check in-store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire in-country, I watched several american managers come and go who clearly didn't like us Canadians, it made for a toxic work environment.

    I worked at Express part-time (more than a 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.
