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

Pros

* Most employee's and managers are nice and easy to work with.
* generous store discount.
* understanding if a few minutes late.

Cons

* Difficult to make plans. Schedule is changed on a daily basis sometimes.
* Expected to work over scheduled shift at last minutes notice, working 10+ hour shift.
* Low pay / sometimes barley any hours
* Very dirty store
* Communication issues.
* Was told at interview, "Hours are based on performance." Not true at all!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit making it difficult for employee's to have a life outside of work. There needs to be more communication between the managers, leaders, experts, cashiers, etc, etc..... Everyone needs to be on the same page about store standards. Recognize employees because they work hard not because of the credit apps they get.

  2.  

    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.
