I worked at J. C. Penney as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Supervisors make you feel like a part of their permanent employees, treating all of us fair and proper. Gave Kuddos where needed and during holidays many provided food for us to all enjoy and even meals during black friday which was fun to work that day. Over all great experience.

Cons

Schedules sucks as most retail does so its to be expected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I was an excellent worker and was told I could get personal letter but never did.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job is good if you are one of the following
    1. 16
    2. Looking to kill time
    3. A college student

    The only thing good about working for JCP is that they are lenient with the schedule. Upper Management is poor and unusual business practices are used.

    Cons

    -Communication
    -Not enough help on sales floor
    -Too much stress on Icaps (opening credit cards for customers)
    -No room to for growth within a given store
    -The customers are HORRID
    -Pay is low
    -Raises and bonuses do not exist anymore

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GIVE US MORE HELP ON THE SALES FLOOR
    Let go of associates that do not work hard enough and give the position to someone who does
