    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked with great people around me. Worked in a very old store so we had a lot of employees who took pride in how the store was run. Had a decent chance at moving up in the company. Not sure if I enjoyed working there because of the values veteran employees had kept in place and wondered if I would have not liked working at a store with a much younger employee base.

    Cons

    Would still be working there if our store wasn't closed. With time came complacency with some older employees and they got set in their ways and didn't like taking constructive coaching from a younger manager. I started at my management position at the most tumultuous time in JCP history. They switched CEO's 3 times while I was there and standards we're being changed daily. A very tough time to learn how to be a manager. Worried about their financial future and that's the only reason why I wouldn't recommend this place to a friend.
