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

Pros

Nice employees
Good benefits
At times was fun

Cons

* Long hours and even some overnights especially during holiday season
* The new CEO has taken this company in the wrong direction and the company has laid off a lot of dedicated, long term employees for younger more experienced because they don't want to pay the higher salaries or benefits

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back the old Jc Penney that cared about their employees.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
