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

    Pros

    great discounts , a great part time employer.

    Cons

    not enough hour to support my family. made almost everyone part time.

    Advice to Management

    you should work in the store and listen to customers and see what they have to say. You should also work to execute changes in one store before making all stores change. going back and forth with projects is discouraging to employees.

    Pros

    you get 2% discount on a perches. they have a big dinning room. they are inside the mall.

    Cons

    they will work you to death. if people don't apply for credit card they make it like it is your fault.
    they hire you saying you are here as permanent employee, but after big holiday they tell you that they no longer need you and you were hired only for the holiday.. so never leave your permanent job for jc penny. you might find your self in the cold after Christmas day.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't lie to people just to hire them for seasonal job only. I left my 3 years job to come work for you. and don't lie about employees performance when you don't need them any more.

    Pros

    JCP always had incentive programs going on within the store that emphasized service and not sales. Also, they would periodically have mini parties in the break room with free food and drinks.

    Cons

    Employees were given compensation based on how old they were and how long they had been in retail. The best employees in retail are usually the younger people because they will eventually move on to do bigger and better things, while older people in retail tend to be low achieving and not as competent.
    No benefits to associates
