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

    Pros

    Fair hours, fair pay, enjoyable atmosphere, great coworkers. Managers tried to make sure everyone was treated with respect. Our store was always encouraging and operated like a close knit family.

    Cons

    Customers aren't always right, and should not be treated like they are. Have more managers on the floor, when the store is busy; management should be willing to help out.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales associates, not just upper management.
