I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Salary ok--good bennies--good employees--nice place to work for high school or college students--not too nice for older people--expectations too high for pay

Cons

too many hours
not employee friendly
no work /life balance
disgruntled supervisors

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-take care of the people who are on the firing line daily trying to save the Company
-restructuring left a lot of employees high and dry and customers not knowing Penney's sales strategy

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is nice to eachother

    Cons

    only 1 raise per year based on performance. And only 3% 4% and 5% increase. But a 5% increase is nearly impossible. (depends who you know and who likes you enough)

    Not many Full Time positions in the store at all, and supervisors are only given 35hrs a week
    sales associates salaries are set at minimum wage and if you want more hours you need to have a fully open availability.

    no more commission (thanks Ron Johnson)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    $9 an hour doesn't pay bills especially with only 15 hours per week

    Doesn't Recommend
