I worked at J. C. Penney

Pros

Great place to work. Employees are given a clear career path and tools with lots of room for vertical growth.

Cons

Difficult to change career paths once you get embedded in an area. Recommend one actively research other areas early in career in order to successfully change directions without financial set back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have annual in house career fairs for employees so they have an opportunity to research potential new interests and career paths.

    I worked at J. C. Penney

    Pros

    No quotas or productivity. Pretty lax policies on apprehensions. Started to go downhill in the last few years with the new director of Loss Prevention.

    Cons

    Horrible. No support from management. They will throw you under the bus and stab you in the back at the slightest chance. Absolutely NO recognition or respect. Company could not care less if they had LP at all. Look at the LP department as a drain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Power trips are bad for morale and mean you are a bad leader.

    Pros

    The most that i can say that was great about working here at J.C.Penny is your customer service abilities grows

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible, they haven't any type of inclination on what their employees are doing, they have no clue what area their employees work in. But all they care about is the profit and the customer profit reflection.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET RETRAINED!!!
