    I worked at J. C. Penney part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working with nice people. Store discount.

    Cons

    You are a disposable number and that is all. The new CEO is making changes on a daily basis that impact peoples livelihood and there is no job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the new CEO.

    I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers are great (most of them anyway). Misery loves company.
    The 25% discount.

    Cons

    I work at the Sephora inside JCP and we have to ask EVERY client; 1. "are you a beauty insider? Would you like to sign up for one? 2.We have an event next weekend, can I sign you up?(Sephora holds events almost every weekend. 3. Do you have a JCP credit card? would you like to sign up for one? 4. It says you're eligible for the jcp rewards points, would you like to sign up for that too? OH and #5. for the love of God, can you please take our survey!" It's is terrible and makes me want to run and hide when people are at the register. Ughh, how annoying it is to have to ask all that. I can only imagine being on the receiving end of the interrogation.
    Managers are constantly threatening cutting hours because we can't make last years figures, however they continue to hire more people. WOW!
    Loved the company when I first started and with all eyes on the company, I saw for myself what was happening and is continuing to happen. It's very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look, last years figures and this years figures are not going to compare when the company is going through major reorganization. A reorganization by a leader whose initiative was to cut titles, jobs & hours while expecting profits and "likability" to rise.
    As other commenters have said...please stop changing the rules every week and getting mad because we haven't been told about the 'new' rule yet, or can't keep straight which have changed or not.
