I learned a lot about managing a department/store and the retail industry.

Emerging Leader Intern (Former Employee)
Albany, NY

I worked at J. C. Penney as an intern for less than a year

ProsI learned a lot about retail and management. It was also great working with a diverse group of people. I realized that retail wasn't for me, but if you love retail and working in a store it's a great place to be.

ConsI had to work weekends and if I was closing I'd be there until midnight.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's important to make the employees feel like they are doing meaningful work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
