I worked at J. C. Penney part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Friendly co-workers, easy and enjoyable work.

Cons

Long hours, always standing, lots of folding clothes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All day doorbusters are really hard on associates, and don't make sense. Also, more importantly, only use discount coupons for percentages off, not monetary amounts. That way associates don't have to start a new transaction after the customer reaches $75.

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, a nice discount, depending on your manager a laid back environment.

    Cons

    Next to no accountability, management plays favorites, low pay, lousy hours. The company expects you to live your life for them, while not caring about you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites for one. And hold people responsible, you can't say this is the policy, then ignore repeat offenders because you're afraid of confrontation.

    I worked at J. C. Penney part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    pay was great because i made a great impression during my interview, most of the co-workers are pretty cool, discounts, free food in break room around holidays

    Cons

    i worked season so none of the managers knew me by name besides one that I know personally, COUPONS (TOO MANY THAT CANT BE USED AT OONCE BUT THEY WANT TO), pushy/rude customer occasionally, put on the floor on black friday not knowing what i was doing because of lousy training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't wait until last minute to hire seasonal employees because then it leads to rushed and inadequate training=below average workers you hired
