Great company to work for.

Sales Associate (Former Employee)

I worked at Express LLC part-time for more than 3 years

Proshours, opportunity to learn new skills, managers are laid back and recognize / reward hard work.

ConsIf you ask for a day off, they may schedule you less. You need to make yourself as available as possible.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't guilt trip your employees to work certain holidays... This happened at one paticular store so I'm sure that it doesn't happen everywhere.

Good place to work in college

ConsNon-commission. Holidays and weekends usually required to work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

Very political. Need to be tough skinned to work here.

Home Office (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH (US)

I worked at Express LLC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat discount. Company values are terrific. Strong training programs. Field people work very hard. Stylish, quality clothing and accessories.

ConsOffice culture includes a lot of backstabbing and gossip with no consequence.

Check out DM turnover. You're only as good as yesterday's results.

Advice to Senior ManagementWalk your talk Home office is a viper pit and teams don't collaborate.

Very fast paced environment

Associate (Current Employee)
McAllen, TX (US)

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

ProsGood challenging experience in retail. Good discount (30%). You can dress however you want, you are only required to wear their denim jeans. Very popular store so there's a lot of hours to be worked.

ConsPays very little compared to other retail stores. Not paid enough for all the work that is expected. I have friends that work at places like Anne Taylor and have it much easier and get paid more. Most of management treats you like you don't matter and don't even bother to learn your name.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
