    I've learned a lot about customer service and management. If you work hard you can easily advance in the company.

    Pros

    If you are a hard worker and show interest in your job and the company you are more than likely to advance within. For the most part the people that work at jcpenney are really great and helpful. You learn a lot about customer service which makes you more comfortable and confident with interacting with customers.

    Cons

    If you are a part time employee, hours are unreliable at times so I would suggest having another job. Also their is a lot of pressure put on getting credit card applications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to communicate information better to each other as well as how that information is communicated to the associates.

    It use to be a family like atmosphere, however since we have had a new ceo, Ron Johnson it;s very stressful.

    Pros

    JCP is a long time standing company. The employees are loyal and friendly. I like the fact that everyone works together.

    Cons

    Our new CEO has changed so many thing dramatically and too swiftly. There has been cuts to employees who have been with the company for 15 to 20 years and replaced with younger and less experienced people. Pay cuts have hurt myself and every employee that i work with. We have recieved no notice of pay cuts and the changes until it is right up on your heels..1 week is not enough time to inform us of the money loss. There is no regard to our lives and responsibilities. I feel raped by the company but what can I do I need a job. I;m very unhappy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say to take your time and feel your way through the employees and the customers. The abrupt changes have hurt a lot of families. It's beginning to feel like a Wal Mart, not careing about the workers just the profits and FYI your employees are your profit. If we loose good workers your company will loose customers because JCP's customers empathize with us and they will and have gone to shop elsewhere to prove thier loyalty to us. Please stop and think of the entire eco system of our company.
