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

Pros

Great training program, good pay, very fun atmosphere. It's great to see a company that recognizes positive results while also working with you to become even better at your job.

Cons

Since this is a joint venture between Sephora and JC Penney, the two sides would sometimes clash and contradict each other. It was hard to tell who you were supposed to be listening to sometimes. Also, as great as it was working with the Sephora side, the people on the JC Penney side were always miserable and didn't really understand the concept as well as they should have.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The two companies need to communicate better with each other and the stores.

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    flexible hours
    you can move to different departments to gain experience
    extra hours are always available

    Cons

    schedule will change at last minute without notice
    tedious work and lots of standing
    it is the cashiers job to recover but you can be yanked from the task that your doing to help recover the store
    No more night shift, It's very counter productive to try and recover the store while there are customers in the store

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance. Very satisfying work when project are available. Great management teams. Previous years credit given to boost vacation time. Very competitive salary with good sign on bonus.

    Cons

    Minimal raises and bonus payouts. Promotional opportunities very limited without relocation. Corporate strategy changes created uncertainty in job security. Poor insurance benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a growth plan with Management Trainee's that shows promotional opportunities and salary increase to reduce turnover.
