    I worked at J. C. Penney part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is in a mall so there is walkin traffic. If you are new you can hope to build a client base. You do get a small store discount.

    Cons

    No longer is there any commission. There is manditory training for styles that are not current. Free kids cut drove away a lot of regular customers and brought in some of the worst customers I ad ever done. Receptionists cram appointments into lunch and break times without asking. Management is not honest with employees. They couldn't afford to pay hourly so they started cutting hours but continue to offer free kids cuts. They are denying vacation requests(probably can't afford to pay it). The company is losing millions of dollars under new CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees, don't mislead them.


  2. A good job for a college student
