    Pros

    Worked with a "few" good people.

    Cons

    You are just another number, High expectation with no resource, back stabbing upper management, upper management is not realistic and not work/life balance. After they hired the new CEO (not Mike) the company went downhill.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic on certain project. You are not in the store everyday, so you don't know what goes on. Improve training program and value your associates.

  2. Learn to be self-sufficient and customer is priority number one.

    I worked at J. C. Penney

    Pros

    I personally enjoyed the fast-pace environment it provided. Employee Recognition. Small treats for making sales goals.

    Cons

    Staffing issues, keeping up with customers when you are by yourself requires some skin.

    Advice to Management

    I feel some employees are being disregarded for the wrong reasons. In this economy, it's sad to see employees losing hours because some people don't want a credit card.
