I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time for more than a year

Pros

Good position keeps you busy with stocking inventory, online ordering with lots of great returning happy customers, some perks on online sales now and ICAP's.

Cons

Not really any at this store. Seems most employees know each other and are willing to help get a project completed if you have a problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In store managers nice are very helpful keeping others informed on constant changes in store. Management in this store is on top of all projects going on. I feel that are doing a great job at Corbin Park Kansas store.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    flexible schedules for the most part, friendly co-workers, 25% discount

    Cons

    Harassed about credit app (JCP credit card) goal. Supervisors aren't always friendly. Barely see store manager. Are not very understanding. Don't receive raises often. Low pay. No career advancement opportunities until supervisors retires/fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make rules and stick to them. Need more employees on the sales floor assisting customers. Two-three people is not enough if were all stuck at the registers.(mainly for weekends) Encouragement is different then harassing associates for credit apps.

    Pros

    They will work around your schedule. They will give you hours if you're a good worker and if you meet the credit application goal.

    Cons

    Low pay, often not enough help on the floor due to budget cutbacks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate desperately needs to change their vision and bring back coupons. The current strategy will be the downfall of JCPenney. Bring back focus to the customer and not the look and feel of the store. The average customer is not going to notice or care about little details on placement of a group of shirts. The sets have become so structured that it hinders common sense!!
