Pros

JCP always had incentive programs going on within the store that emphasized service and not sales. Also, they would periodically have mini parties in the break room with free food and drinks.

Cons

Employees were given compensation based on how old they were and how long they had been in retail. The best employees in retail are usually the younger people because they will eventually move on to do bigger and better things, while older people in retail tend to be low achieving and not as competent.
No benefits to associates
