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

Pros

Great training program, good pay, very fun atmosphere. It's great to see a company that recognizes positive results while also working with you to become even better at your job.

Cons

Since this is a joint venture between Sephora and JC Penney, the two sides would sometimes clash and contradict each other. It was hard to tell who you were supposed to be listening to sometimes. Also, as great as it was working with the Sephora side, the people on the JC Penney side were always miserable and didn't really understand the concept as well as they should have.

Advice to Management

The two companies need to communicate better with each other and the stores.

    Implement unique changes that team members support but ease into them opposed to all at once. Acknowledge your young leaders, embrace the bilingual and provide them opportunity for growth since they are able to communicate effectively with team members.
