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

    Pros

    Beautiful store, variety of good products, great employee discount, nice customers/co-workers.

    Cons

    Low pay, minimal breaks, some managers communicate in a condescending manner, lack of training, asking customers to sign up for credit cards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to sales associate input and implement needed changes, improve training and manager/lead communication skills, ensure each department is on top of go backs, etc. during the day so employees from other departments don't have to make up for their lack of responsibility after closing, ensure long term employees don't take advantage of new employees.

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

    Pros

    I really love the friends I have made while working at this company. My coworkers are great and most of them are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    I don't agree with how they did things during the holiday season. They hired about 20 (give or take) seasonal employees, but then cut the regular employee's hours down. I was getting 8 hours a week in December/January when I needed money the most!! They should have just given us full-time hours and not hired more unnecessary people.
