    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The level of customer service and continuing effort for customer satisfaction is one of the very best I have every work within. The new advertising Campaings are fun and entertaining. Associate Discounts make it very hard not to shop ALOT.

    Cons

    In February a New CEO was brought in to Helo JCP transition in todays failing economy. Over haldf of the Store staff were let go and Now starting May 20 the salon associates will no longer receive the commission on Product sales or services but are being given hourly rate based on Productivity while the prices charge previously to clients are being lowered. Basically Every Stylist in the nation that work at JCP loose 25-40 % of there income and have no ability to recoup wages.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the salon stylists that are bringing in revenue with the current pay types. New Hirees can be brought in under the new plan of Hourly only. No One is going to accept a demotion because number crunches dont use all the facts.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great compensation, work life balance, and benefits, and most people there are great to work with. Nice campus with lots of amenities and conveniences within the building. Great location in North Dallas to be single or raise a family.

    Cons

    Little room to advance. You have to be cross functional and be willing to move laterally for several years and learn other positions before being promoted. Otherwise, if you don't, you can easily become stuck in one place. Morale inside the company was really poor during the reorganization, and senior management's strategies, while exciting at first, seem to be losing steam, and stock price is a reflection of that.
