    I worked at J. C. Penney part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're on commission on Shoes, it's decent money. Coworkers are usually nice. Discount was nice as well.

    Cons

    Working in shoes was stressful because of irate customers always looking for discounts as well as the pressures of meeting sales goals. Management was intimidating rather than friendly. On a busy day sometimes we would stay hours after our shift would end. Not recommended as a job for high schoolers.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your money but also care about your employees as well.
