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

Pros

good company in it's glory days. Still great place to work and good environment. Compensation was moderate to average. Nice company perks (discounts).

Cons

lots of change, almost overwhelming. Company is struggling and initiating huge amounts of change. somewhat chaotic due to changes and not everyone being on same page.

Advice to Management

Change is tough, but is necessary. Vision with passion = success!

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

    Pros

    Interesting position. Job is different every day. I work with some really great people and that is definitely the best part of the job.

    Cons

    There are changes on a weekly business. It seems like they don't have a clear idea of where they are going as a company. It confuses employees. It also seems as though the people who work at the corporate level have never worked in the stores before because half of the things they implement make no sense.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication and work on keeping employee morale up.
