Seasonal Store Associate

I worked at J. C. Penney part-time (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.

    Pros

    I enjoy the team I work with.

    Cons

    JCP used to really value their employees. We were treated incredibly well. However, now hours are being cut in every area, and jobs are becoming harder and more tedious. More work is falling on fewer people because positions and hours are being removed, but tasks are being added. Customer opinions are also being ignored in the name of "moving forward."

    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 Management

    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.
