    Pros

    JCP is on the edge of changing how America looks at retail. Management is fair when requesting time off for sick children or illness however they do deduct it from your vacation time.

    Cons

    While some of the changes have been a good thing for jcp, the changes were too quick for the customers and worse for the associates. Many things should of been planned better from releasing the pricing team (and then doing months of price changes) to eliminating the catalog pick up area. You never knew what was expected because the job description changed every other week. Jcp is trying to foster a culture of openness and creativity but middle management is still use to squashing ideas at the local level and then presenting them as their own. If you plan on working for jcp, watch your back.

    Advice to Management

    Associates work for low pay because they love working for the company. Remember that and play by the Golden Rule.
