I worked at J. C. Penney part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They give you a good amount if hours

Cons

If you work around the holidays they have you do tedious things, managers never learned my name, they didn't even realize if I didn't go to work or left early.

Advice to Management

Get to know your holiday workers and make they feel important too.

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

    Pros

    Great work/ life balance. Able to work schedule that worked for me.

    Cons

    Too much turmoil the last year. Jobs eliminated, job titles changed, hours and pay cut.

    Advice to Management

    The store modal was changed too drastically. Baby steps would have been better. Customers would have been more receptive to changes if sales and coupons weren't totally discontinued over night. All the staff changes changes and cuts at store level, has the stores filled with inexperienced part time help. The associates who spent their lives at JCPenney were tossed out as if they were no longer needed.
