    I have been working at Express

    Pros

    I had no retail experience prior to working at Express. I have found that my managers have done a great job at teaching me how to work in a selling and retail environment, multitasking, and driving sales-oriented conversation with customers. The atmosphere is fun and the clothes really are very nice. My coworkers are great. Also, the 30% associate discount is pretty generous. I got hired seasonally, but they kept me after the holidays and always gave me very generous hours. I was sort of afraid that I would only get one shift per week since I would have been the low person on the totem pole, but I worked hard throughout the holiday season, and they noticed this. They never treated me like a seasonal employee, and now, I'm there just as often as the folks who have been employed there for years.

    Cons

    The online scheduling website leaves a lot to be desired. Also, it's minimum wage, which does seem a little unfair for a company that sells $120 jeans.

    Pros

    You're surrounded by people who are very professional. They still somehow maintain functioning like a big family. If you are good at being happy and welcoming and isn't afraid of communicating you'll do just fine! When hired your first purchase is 50% off and afterwards you get 30% off on all things excluding watches and clearance items. You aren't required to wear Express but the clothes you do wear have to look like it's from Express.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best. it's minimum wage :(
