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

Pros

The co-workers and bosses are really down to earth people, they work around your schedule if you ask them, they give alot of hours, and the atmosphere of the place is a laid back one

Cons

If you can't solicit credit don't expect to do well in the company (saw a girl get fired for this reason).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to be a little less strict.

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, supportive supervisors, location, lunch breaks, employee rooms are awesome, atmosphere is pretty laid back. Focus is entirely on customer, so if you fall behind on a project or assignment because you were helping a customer, you won't get in trouble for it.

    Cons

    Stock sent to your store is based off national data instead of local data (i.e., HUNDREDS of fleece sheets and such sent to Houston stores despite only selling 20 or so a year), some managers like to not respond to calls for help (most do their job, but there are always the bad apples), hours may not always be 40 a week, music is repetitive, sometimes expected to cover an area you're unfamiliar with for an hour or so for someone's lunch (not SO bad, but can be annoying to you AND the customer)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more people oriented to each department so floor associates aren't running around with their heads cut off because they don't know enough about a department they're covering. RESPOND when someone calls for help- even if you know nothing about the department, go anyway. They may just need you to put in your password so they can run a program. Also, get with an insurance that's better than Cigna, please?
