I worked at J. C. Penney

Pros

Great enviroment, easily adapted. The management consisted of 4-5 people, only one mean manager. Positive place to work but the pay is sub par.

Cons

Black Friday. Store manager extremely lazy. The really isnt anything I can honestly say is bad, I enjoyed it overall but the pay was horrible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think the sales associates are way under paid. I never understood how a store manager can put decent managers below them and completely do nothing and collect the best pay.

    I worked at J. C. Penney

    Pros

    Pay I was offered a lot more than I expected compared to other stores, good coworkers in the many departments.

    Cons

    Management made me switch depts. every other week. Never could get my scheduling correct even though I was only not available 2 days a week because of school. Would get 8 hours one week and 36 the next, not consistent at all. Store closed at 9, bbut we would stay until 3 or 4 in the morning because of poor scheduling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire fresh out of college graduates to be upper management. A department supervisor would be a fine job for them.
