Great place to work overall, but, I did not enjoy the early morning wake up calls or truck days.

Support Specialist (Former Employee)
Vancouver, WA

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

Pros- Helping Customers.
- Working with the other members of my team. {99% of my co-workers were great to work with}
- 25% employee discount.
- Clean, friendly, and safe environment to work in.

Cons- Not knowing fully what was going on.
- Unloading the truck within a certain amount of time that was just not physically possible.
- Not receiving proper training.
- Not knowing who my direct supervisor is.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that employee's get proper training. I was able to only do three pages worth of my training packet and I wished that I was able to read it all.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Sometimes it's not possible… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
