    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    No Pros any more as the company has changed.

    Cons

    The company has changed and no longer cares for it's associates. It's all about profits for the stock holders. Staff has been cut and service is poor because of it. Those who are left are over worked and show it in the attitues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to reorganize...again!

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
