Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) – North York, ON – 11 December 2016
express is a great company if you don't like long hours, however, but not when you're struggling to pay for things. There's no hours to give if you work there part-time. I work four hours a week, although I asked for 15. your performance basically determines the amount of hours you will be given. so if you're not engaging with customers and pushing sales, you're more likely not get many hours.You are expected to engage with every single customers that enters the store, encourage them to try things on in the dressing room, and push them to buy things. All in all, it's great as a first job especially when you're in school, however, theres way to much expected from a part timer who's there four hours a week, and doesn't get paid enough to do the work that they do.
Employee discounts, short hours
favouritism for certain employees, no hours to be given, management expects WAY too much for the amount that you get paid.

I get to organize everything in the store and make sure that the store is ready to be opened in the morning. I get to interact with customers on the needs and greet them in a friendly way. Assist them and suggest on anything they need and make sure they are provided with all the information they need to know. I love working with customers and making sure that they are happy when they leave the store. The management is good. They are open to any comments or any suggests/ problems that are in the store. There is no hard parts in this workplace. The enjoyable part is when I get to spent time with the customer and getting to help them out. At the same time, the associate I work with make me happy and we have fun working together.

Nice Friendly place to work, very simple job. However if you do not preform at your best then your hours do get cut. Other then that management is friendly, coworker are really friendly they make you feel like your part of a team.

How in the Holy world if you're making $14/HR does overtime pay workout to $19.50/HR? Do you people not understand what time and half is? $14/HR x time and half = $21/HR. What kind of scam are you people trying to pull?
After bringing up harassment on at least 6-8 staff by management, I was treated soooo poorly the stress made me quit. 25 yr retail manager. Shame on express they don't follow the whistle blowers LAW. Nor protect their staff who became sexually harassed. Shame.

Worked in retail for over 15 years, by far, the worst company I've ever worked for. Stay away for your own sanity. Negative company, no appreciation, over worked, no communication. I could go on and on. Constant turn over, cannot hold on to Any level of employees.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Hamilton – 13 July 2012
I have never felt so unappreciated at a job I worked so hard for before. To elaborate on all my low ratings here is what I put up with from this company. As for salary, typically a minimum wage job with higher than normal expectations. I was often required to work 9 hours without any breaks at all. Id work until 6 in the morning, for FREE just to make sure they got everything they need to get done on time...which was my choice but a simple " thank you" from the manager would have been appreciated. Worst management ive ever had to deal with by far. Complete lack of management skills when it comes to dealing with employees. Threatened my hours if I didnt stay late because that would show " i have no dedication to the company" ( meanwhile, I would stay late every shift, come in anytime of the day they wanted me to when I was not scheduled in for that day, and work for free) all while the manager herself would sit in the back on her blackberry the whole time and never once stayed late to help out stafff. The best part about this job, was the discount, and my co- workers. What I learned from this job is that I am a good hard worker and I deserve to be treated with a lot more respect.
