I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

JCPenney is an interesting environment with engaging individuals, a great discount, and fun people. The stores are clean and inviting, and the merchandise is exciting.

Cons

The pay is not great, and due to the recent transformation is a high stress environment. It is somewhat difficult to move up in the ranks, since they like to hire for leadership positions from the outside.

Advice to Management

have a plan set in place to cope with the stressful environment of retail.

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

    Pros

    Very good at promoting associates already in place, 25% associate discount, very good benefits.

    Cons

    Senior management consisted of some people who were very unfair; criticism and reprimands by senior managers on the sales floor in front of other associates and customers. Manager in charge of associate engagement was the worst at this; heard of this happening many times and it caused morale in the store to fall sharply.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to associate feedback about senior management; no reason for a large group to be having problems with one manager. Treat your associates with respect; you may find that they treat you with respect.
