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

Pros

Flexible hours, incredibly friendly supervisors.

Cons

Lack of direction and consistency from corporate level. LP guidelines put burden of risk on employee, while employer expects results but legally keeps their hands clean.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop and maintain procedures that apply across the board. Share burden of risk with LP employees, or back off of expected results.

No opinion of CEO
