  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 worked at J. C. Penney full-time for less than a 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
