I worked at J. C. Penney part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Not a very strict dress code, many fun co-workers, interesting hiring process, reasonable supervisors/managers

Cons

Too much emphasis on credit card applications, the ability to speak Spanish is basically required, no one is assigned to monitor the customers as they enter and exit the dressing rooms, so there is a lot of theft (which supervisors suggest you are responsible for) and the rooms are very messy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Chill out about JCP credit cards. Sometimes it's not possible to get 2 a week

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

    Pros

    I was given a decent amount of hours and they worked around my class schedule.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't very good but I wouldn't expect much out of a retail job. I knew of a couple people who had worked there for well over 10 years and still didn't make much.
