  1.  

    My experience was eye-opening and wonderful.

    I worked at J. C. Penney

    Pros

    The staff is very friendly and supportive of their fellow co-workers. If a co-worker is in the middle of returning merchandise to its proper place and is asked by a customer for assistance, those around her will offer to finish her job while she helps a customer. All the staff is flexible and will shift to take turns working in any area that needs attention.

    Cons

    As with most retail jobs, the need to be open late/early, weekends and holidays does require lots of flexible scheduling for the employees. Since 'work' days and times vary, having activities outside of work can be difficult. Joining a Thursday(Monday, etc.) night club would be hard to do.

  2.  

    Great place to work part time.

    I worked at J. C. Penney part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good discount, Flexible scheduling, and they are often looking for new people.

    Cons

    Not the greatest place to advance. Their pay is market average but not great. I left when the new regime came in and made some odd choices. Dramatic shifts in scheduled hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the stores the ability to retain the employees they want to keep by allowing them easier ability to give raises.
