    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.

    Pros

    Employee discount
    Flexibility in scheduling
    Co-worker interactions

    Cons

    Since Ron Johnson took over very secretive
    A company in decline
    The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you want to know where the company is going, look to Circuit City. You are on their path right now. You can not create a cost structure like Kohls without first addressing some of the underlying structural differences in the way you merchandise merchandise.
