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

    Pros

    I work in Support, with a group of good people. We are the store's workhorse, and we like it that way. You can't become bored if you are a multi-tasker. The job is a very good one, and I would recommend it to anyone that likes doing physical labor, has computer skills, and likes to help customers. But only appy if you want part-time work.

    Cons

    The drawbacks to working at JC Penney are the shorter hours for full-time employees, and the part-timers have even less hours so that they can not become full-time employees. Plus, there are no set work schedules. Every week is different, they change the schedule without informing, or asking, the workers, and the schedule is never posted in a timely, consistant manner so that workers can plan for doctor appointments, and etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone knows that full-time employees costs companys more money than part-timers. But with that extra costs comes a worker that cares about the company, cares about keeping the job for a long time, and therefore puts out a true effort to be a model employee. That employee is well groomed, shows up on time, cares about the customer, and has the satisfaction knowing that the customer that leaves happy will be a repeat customer. In simple terms, you get what you pay for.
