    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have a job that makes some money. The discount you get is 25% and you are allowed special shopping days. They do some recognition of your achievements. I made some friends that I still communicate with outside of that job.

    Cons

    They treat you as if you are replaceable. The company has a horrible turn over rate. Because of the new structure of the company if you are not available all the time you get punished bey loss of hours.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees have lives outside of the store. Remember that at one point you were a regular employee and not a manager and remember how hard it was to prove yourself to the hire ups.

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

    Pros

    Most of the time it was a relaxed area. Well that is if you stood up to your management. The home office was nice, with all the little shops and in house gym.

    Cons

    Overall the company is a good company to work for but when they got the new CEO. The company last it's way of what it stood for.

    Advice to Management

    Its not good keeping everything same. It's about moving forward and make everyone's job easier. Take a stand and have a back bone. It's not about being everyone's friend.
