  5. "Good discount and a low-stress job"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Sales Associate 

    I worked at J. C. Penney part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generous employee discount. Flexible hours for the most part.

    Cons

    The pressure to get people to apply for the JCPenney credit card is not a positive part of the job. Unless you are looking for a job in which you push people to apply for things on the spot, this part of the job can feel slimy and blatantly annoying.
