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.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with. The job was challenging but interesting. With old management company felt like a family. You get to interact with different job types and levels. You get to see the new product before the season. The position will impact the company bottom line because you are the last person to touch the merchandise before it gets to the stores.

    Cons

    There is a definate difference in levels of management at JCP. Upper levels look down on lower levels as clerical help. New management quick to let people go if you don't see eye to eye with them. Some times the company is very clickish.
