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

Pros

They have a good employee discount and, if you are good at your job, you can go far. I would say JCP does care about its employees.

Cons

You have to have a college degree to get into a management spot no matter how much you know or how long you've worked there. The new changes to the JCP look is really taking away from what JCP built.They are shutting down branches all over my city.

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    jcp is not scared to place you in a role that you have no experience in. Multiple locations throughout the country which provides opportunities for advancement if willing to locate.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities if not willing to locate. If a position is offered to you and you turn down the position (due to location or job preferences), it is difficult to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Management should evaluate their distribution center HR policies as there are a multitude of under-performing supervisors and managers who cannot be dismissed from the company due to the Pro-employee approach they take. This effects moral of quality employees.
