    I worked at J. C. Penney part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount, sales incentive perks and contest, opportunity for permanent hire, or first call during next seasonal event hiring.

    Welcome to retail's most hectic time of year, and management will be overzealous about credit applications.
