Started off great but when health issues became a problem, hours were cut and never given back after out of hospital. Went from working 40 hours a week to 20 and didn’t get paid equally to others

JC Penney was a pleasant place to work. I worked in sales with commissions. Management was helpful in any way the could be. At the time, I enjoyed working retail.

The company is a good one to work for but there is mismanagement going on at the local store that makes working there unpleasant. Employees were made to feel as if they didn't matter and no consideration was taken for them having personal lives. The company has a great Golden Rule and pays fairly based on previous employment. There are many instances for upward movement if you show promise and are a hard worker.
Pros
Decent pay, MTO balance, affordable healthcare
Cons
Management, work/life balance, environment

I worked there for awhile as a 2nd and 3rd job to cover the medical expenses that were left over from my hysterectomy. I learned how to repair jewelry, became diamond certified through online training, and I met a lot of fascinating people who I still see out and about today and remember the great customer service I gave them in finding that special piece of jewelry that they were looking for. The hardest part of the job was opening the ancient safe when opening the store on the weekend mornings since I have a Mon-Fri 8:30-5 job, so I would have to have assistance with that task. That is the safe that held jewelry repairs that customers were picking up. What I did learn is that management there was not always available when needed, especially for the new employees.
Pros
special lunches, fund raisers for the needy, and meeting goals
Cons
not getting out of work on time when the mall was already closed, and the long drive home after a 14 hour shift between 2 jobs

hardest part of job, keeping up with the fitting rooms. most enjoyable part was meeting new people. got along fine with co-workers and management . learned the value of good customer service. typical day would be: get to work, check in, go to missses' department, straightened clothes on shelves that were messy, check fitting rooms for unwanted clothing to be returned to register, and check clothing on display to see if it had to be straightened.
Pros
gained workplace experience
Cons
faster pace around christmas eve
