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

    Pros

    The people there are great the employees are nice once you get to know them. Very friendly and helpful. Discount is good 25% off on merchandise.

    Cons

    Managers are usually watching your very move, every week is different in hours you get. Pay is not good Minimum wage is start and raises could be only 10 cents a year. During holiday season they work you to death but then Jan. Feb months there is no work. There are black out days you can not take time especially when you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employes a little better - Happy people make good people who will work for you. Don't have them work until midnight one night then have them come in at 6am the next. Explain all the rule especially when you get a truck delivery. Also let them know the chain of communication who they report to and who they go to for hours. Communication is the key and it doesn't happen.

    Interacting with customers.
    Associate discount is pretty good

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, too much to do with very little staff

    Clothing assortment has really become very poor

    Advice to Management

    Home office management is joke, need to live in reality. Take a step back and look what you are during to this company and it's employees.
