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

    Pros

    It "used" to be a "caring, family" place to work

    Cons

    No hours, lots of recovery - for non-management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, "they" also feel the pain - blame it on the "New CEO" - Ron Johnson!

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    + customer oriented
    + takes good/bad reviews seriously
    + friendly environment
    + managers can be friendly& down-to-earth but know when to manage
    + 25% discount
    + the change [ppl may hate it now but things don't just happen overnight, I think they're going in the right direction]
    + good hours during the holidays
    + spirit week [reminds me of high school and I loved the spirit]
    + recognition
    + new dress code [not business attire anymore]
    + flexible schedule

    Cons

    - even if your department is clean, everyone has to stay til the store is clean
    - late nights
    - random nights where you will have to stay til 4am because the store will be inspected the next morning
    - favoritism
    - difficult to advance
    - so many employees so some hard workers aren't recognized
    - some managers are biased
    - cliques
    - employee drama
    - the change [i understand it takes a while but it's a pain in the ass to re-explain everything to customers]
    - very very little hours after holidays [full time went to part time, part time went to under pay or no hours at all]
    - not enough employees at closing. sometimes there would only be one person closing at Kids, and that's a pretty big department to close by yourself
    - kept pushing others to get ICAPs or online sales.
