  1.  

    lots of work to get ahead, promotions hard to come. Not based necessarily on performance, about who you know and impress

    I have been working at J. C. Penney

    Pros

    opportunity to relocate, most of the team members are friendly

    Cons

    long hours, pay isn't always "equal" for jobs that are being performed. Haven't had a raise in a couple of years, other than a cost of living increase for a relocation. Even though it was a bigger store and more people to manage, and in a state of disaster upon my arrival from the previous person who was terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work life balance, non-existent if you want to see a promotion. home office team is out of touch with the realities of actually working in a store on a day to day basis. Take a look at the attendance policy, far to lenient.

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