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

Pros

jcp is not scared to place you in a role that you have no experience in. Multiple locations throughout the country which provides opportunities for advancement if willing to locate.

Cons

Limited opportunities if not willing to locate. If a position is offered to you and you turn down the position (due to location or job preferences), it is difficult to advance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should evaluate their distribution center HR policies as there are a multitude of under-performing supervisors and managers who cannot be dismissed from the company due to the Pro-employee approach they take. This effects moral of quality employees.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    discount and paid vacation (if you are full time)

    Cons

    everything! salon managers, district managers...you name it. if you want stuff like commission and hours taken from you, you're workin at the right place. if you want to do free kid haircuts for a month straight with no tips, come on down. if you want to work for a company that doesn't value it's employees at all... by all means come get a job at Penneys, because everyone else is quitting and they will need some quality workers to run the store and salons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get new managers that actually back up their employees and make positive changes. have Salon employees give feedback to corporate and then use it to run the salons better!

    I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time

    Pros

    The best reason to work there is that it is a job.

    Cons

    The downfall is standing on one's feet all day, customers leaving clothing on the floor and associated expected to clean up fitting rooms, put back on the racks and smile, smile, smile

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of training and compassion for new employee.
