I worked at J. C. Penney part-time for less than a 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 for 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 for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Atleast in my store, the associates were very close knit. Especially in the smaller departments such as shoes or fine jewelry. Our store was often described as family and that is very hard to find now.

    Cons

    It is a corporate company, and along with corporate changes, comes the loss of job security. I feel like with the new CEO that things are just going down hill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only complaint would be raises and compensation for a job well done.
