I worked at J. C. Penney full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

This is in the past: "Some of the reasons that the company had so many long serving associates is because of the fairness in the way it treats the associates and its customers. The change in leadership brought many changes in the organisation, while the promise to transform the company is a step in the right direction, very many experienced management associates were laid off, leaving a lack of management to help carry out this transformation.

Cons

Politics play a big part in your performance. Change in management means all your past contributions count for nothing in consideration for promotions or lay offs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go down and listen to the working class of associates instead of listening to gatekeepers give nice and polished reports which is far from reality.

    I worked at J. C. Penney part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good seasonal job, people were nice, lots of treats and goodies from management. Pay was slightly above minimum, which was a plus!

    Cons

    Doing all training via computer programs was no substitute for good hands on training. Most of what I learned was actually through working on the floor.
