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

    Pros

    Most of the time it was a relaxed area. Well that is if you stood up to your management. The home office was nice, with all the little shops and in house gym.

    Cons

    Overall the company is a good company to work for but when they got the new CEO. The company last it's way of what it stood for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its not good keeping everything same. It's about moving forward and make everyone's job easier. Take a stand and have a back bone. It's not about being everyone's friend.

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits were pretty good. I enjoyed working with most of my associates

    Cons

    The corporate office did very little when saddled with lots of complaints about store management. When working retail there really are no holidays. It is difficult to plan any holiday family trips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring store managers who come from the cookie cutter manager store. Management with some humanity, and good morals left in them would be nice.
