I worked at J. C. Penney full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Managers and co-workers were awsome, they recognize what you do and they give you awards and small bonuses, also great shopping discounts for employees

Cons

The salary is very low and it takes a long time to get a raise, sometimes crazy hours, long hours on your feet

Advice to Management

Pay higher salaries, Dress code should be professional, listen to employee needs

    I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of a single one

    Cons

    Lack of knowledge of the management they hire. The management teams do not know how to do the jobs within the company so they make demands that are unreasonable on the associates. Too many woman and so too much tackiness and backstabbing going on within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire managers that have experience in retail positions and know the job. Hiring just anyone that has management experience is NOT helping your company. They do not know what it takes to work in retail stores and they are unfortunately causing this company to go down the tubes. Employees are trying hard to make it work and do what is necessary but when you have managers that don't have a clue about how long or much time it takes to complete tasks you have store that is not making it and the wrong people are being blamed!!
