I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

I loved the people I worked with. The job was challenging but interesting. With old management company felt like a family. You get to interact with different job types and levels. You get to see the new product before the season. The position will impact the company bottom line because you are the last person to touch the merchandise before it gets to the stores.

Cons

There is a definate difference in levels of management at JCP. Upper levels look down on lower levels as clerical help. New management quick to let people go if you don't see eye to eye with them. Some times the company is very clickish.
