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.

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

    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!
