Pros

Most associates are dedicated and care about the customers. Interacting with customers. Associate discount is pretty good

Unrealistic expectations, too much to do with very little staff Hours can be horrible during peak events Clothing assortment has really become very poor

Advice to Management

Home office management is joke, need to live in reality. Take a step back and look what you are during to this company and it's employees.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (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 Management

    The two companies need to communicate better with each other and the stores.
