Pros

working with hard working people. good energy and support from fellow workers.

Cons

stodgy. to change anything is like turning a battleship. stuck in yesterday.

Advice to Management

show more respect to employee's. stop trying to motivate with childish reward programs. like a candy bar . please..spend some money on your employee's. potlucks??? come on...spend a little on these hard working people!! and be open to suggestions. you pay so little and get so much. it's like a revolving door as far as hiring. your lucky to get the kind of people you get and yet show so little respect. people that have worked there for 20 years as staff make nothing compared to floor managment and they don't make that much unless your store manager.it was difficult to watch how hard and the crazy hours floor staff worked for 8-12 dollars an hr. a floor employee's barely survive on the low wages this co. offers.doesn't make you proud to work for this co.

    Pros

    It once recognized associates for their contributions.

    Cons

    The concept of JCPenney being a "new company" is great except when used as a catch phrase. It has become such an unclear statement within the organization that an associate never knows when they are a part of this “new company” or considered a relic of the past. Grids and quartiles make the decision in terms of the individuals “shelf life”.

    Advice to Management

    Your Associates are your futures ,give them the respect they require as they grow and age with the company.

    Pros

    The Company has a great benefits package and offers an associate discount program.

    Cons

    The down side to working for JC Penney's is that they do not care about their associates well being. They use and abuse their employees. That is why the turnover is so high and will continue to stay that way.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team and do not show favoritism. When you have supervisors and associates that are in college to better themselves please just start allowing them to go to class, take finals and mid terms. Telling them that they have to work when they are scheduled for school courses or tests is not fair to them. All this does is bring down moral and make them call in sick or be no call no show anyway just because you feel that work is more important than their education.
