    I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time

    Pros

    The people I work with are great.

    Cons

    The management is non-communicative and disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and openness are KEY. The scheduling is incredibly bad and changes daily; sometimes more than once. This makes it hard to plan the rest of our regular lives and makes motivation plummet. As does the confusion of all of the changes that are not communicated until the last minute making the Big Picture very hard to see and deal with.


  2. "The satisfaction I got from helping customers and managing the associates made working there worth it."

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    J.C. Penney has a great 401k program. The pay is fair, especially if you get into management. J.C.Penney was very big on Customer Service and it showed when the regular customers came back again and again for the personal attention.

    Cons

    With the many changes that J.C. Penney has just undergone, not sure how the Customer Service is. It is unfortunate that a lot of quality people were let go recently. If you are looking for Full time hours J.C. Penney is trending away from Full time associates unless you are a supervisor or manager.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should not be so secretive about what is going on. It gets around anyway before they finally announce it and makes it all silly. Honest open Communication would be nice.
