I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Your indoors comforted by the A/C and you also get to jam to cool music while you work. I always appreciate JCP's commitment to providing employees with two 15 min breaks and a lunch break when working full shifts. I've done this with other jobs and have never been so privileged!

Cons

not much to point out here. though I would love it if JCP had sort of a radio station where customers/ employees could text or request a song somehow. it would make the entire shopping/ working experience even more enjoyable!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always encourage the idea of having periodic special lunches where food is prepared for employees that day. This type of function is fun, engaging, and always makes every worker feel more appreciated and truly causes them to love where they work.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent pay, great supervisors, wonderful associates, easy work.

    Cons

    Constantly pushing credit card applications, managers not supporting supervisors in their decisions concerning associates, the clothing is now casual and is to much like Wal-Mart, not enough hours or regular hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't constantly remind associates to push the credit card applications. We can only ask if the customer refuses then let it go. If a supervisor tells an associate something back them up. Especially if that supervisor is correct. Please go back to nice clothing...jeans and a t shirt? really?
