    Pros

    JCPenney is an interesting environment with engaging individuals, a great discount, and fun people. The stores are clean and inviting, and the merchandise is exciting.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, and due to the recent transformation is a high stress environment. It is somewhat difficult to move up in the ranks, since they like to hire for leadership positions from the outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a plan set in place to cope with the stressful environment of retail.
