I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Seeing new brands and a new vision at an older retailer is exciting. Theoretically stores are given more freedom to execute a new merchandising strategy never before used inside J.C. Penney.

Cons

New brands and pricing structure began as a good thing, but corporate cannot decide on one strategy and stick to it. Every day people go to work fearing they will be let go in the name of restructuring. Rather than encouraging people to do the best work they can, this encourages management to be a culture of fear which then cascades down to the selling floor associates. The new structure demands you give them everything you can, but they are no longer there for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a closer look at the people you have leading the store - and the districts - not just based on prior reviews.

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

    Pros

    People you work with are good. The company provides good benefits for their employees. Use to be a great place you would want to retire at.

    Cons

    New direction of the company and attitude of new executives. New management does not care about its employees. Their decisions and actions are not in line with what they say to the employees in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your employees not just of top management and their financial being.
