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

    Pros

    Family environment, loyal associates, good work life balance

    Cons

    I realized the company needed to change and move forward but at what cost. Eliminating long time employees who gave their blood, sweat and tears because they loved what they were doing. There is no longer a family feel because of the new CEO who doesn't care about the associates but only the bottom line. Unfortunately, you have lost many good associates who were your life long customers based on one appraisal and not looking at all appraisals. One okay appraisal should not warrant termination.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe if you would have spent time to reinvest in your team your results would be better. Customers want sales and coupons not everyday low pricing. It is amazing that you spew out Fair and Square pricing but not fair and square to your employees....

    I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -easy to get time off if manager actually looks to approve it

    Cons

    - there is no moving up in the company
    - don't bother being a hard worker, it doesn't get noticed
    - as long as you get charge apps, you're a golden employee in managements eyes
    - schedule will be released then changed multiple times at last minute notice, without them telling you
    - everyone walks around in a daze just waiting for their shift to end, managers will NEVER lift a finger to help
    - expect angry customers since they are removing the cash registers from the stores and replacing them with "libbys" (they look like ipods, employees can cash out customers anywhere)

    Advice to Management

    remember that there are other employees in the store other than cashiers
