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

    Pros

    Good discount, always something to do, easy interview, good hours for part time, good pay for those with little retail experience.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care about employees, they were very rude to me when I had to leave early due to my home situation, trying to get time off is very difficult, when I was hired, I wasn't asked about days that I needed off so I was scheduled. There was very little training and other employees aren't helpful. I was left alone on my first week to close the department by myself.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to get to know your employees, and be a little more considerate. Offer more hands-on training, not just throwing us up at the register, even though we aren't hired to work that.

    I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, employee discounts, great coworkers, trusted company image, guaranteed wages even with no customers, tiered income based on sales.

    Cons

    Odd hours, occasional slow business which is rough for a hairstylist, smaller salons very concerned with product usage and how customers are charged.

    Advice to Management

    Important to let your employees do what they need to do. Micro-managing only leads to strained company atmosphere and culture.
