Pros

They have a good employee discount and, if you are good at your job, you can go far. I would say JCP does care about its employees.

Cons

You have to have a college degree to get into a management spot no matter how much you know or how long you've worked there. The new changes to the JCP look is really taking away from what JCP built.They are shutting down branches all over my city.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No hours, lots of recovery - for non-management

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Employee discount and slightly above min. wage pay. They give 25% off to employees which is better than most places.

    Cons

    Treated like you're less than human. Can only use the restroom on break no matter what, can't leave the store on break and you must go on breaks as a team.Also, was told I was to take a lunch break by my main boss (I was was working between part time and full time) only to be told by my supervisor that I could not. Supervisor tapped her watch when it was break time and reminded me that while everyone else had half hour, I only had 15 minutes. It was obvious that everyone was terrified by this supervisor since the mood changed drastically when she walked away and comments were made. If you work here, plan to leave your dignity at the door.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and make sure all leaders do the same. When you know they are not, do something to change it.
