Pros

Great discount 25% off, great merchandise at a good value

lean crew, not enough help to complete tasks and service our customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dissapointed that the company did not give seasoned / experienced associates the opportunity to be part of reaching its goal of becoming America's favorite store.

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Lots of changes, newness and excitement
    - CEO has alot of different ideas that could be great
    - Pay was good under old management, not sure how it compares now

    Cons

    - With new CEO and changes, layoffs of at least 1200 at the home office alone.
    - With the changes, lots of uncertainty
    - Layoffs of people because of old school mentality, if your not open and willing to do what they want, you will be let go
    - Benefits got worse during my 10 year career, hopefully that changes with new management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your people before just laying them all off, then posting positions that you could have put them in.

    Pros

    The pay is fair for the supervisors and managers.

    Cons

    Changes since Ron Johnson has become CEO. It is a shame to see the way the associates are treated today!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the every day basics. JCPenney was the Golden Rule Store. This company doesn't have the same morals as years before!
