All the company cares about is JCPENNEY CREDIT CARD. If you can sell multiple per day & trick customers into high interest rates & debt, you’ll do awesome!

Managers very rude, long hours, staying until 2am after closing, low pay
You don't have to be talented to get ahead at JCP, you just have to be in the right clique. The treatment I received there was inhumane, I never worked in such a horrible environment. I would not recommend anyone to work at this evil place. Management is a joke.
Lack of communication between management/supervisors and associates which results in the store looking a complete mess. Don’t expect to be let out at the time in which you are scheduled because the store is short staffed most of the time and you have to stay until the store is completely recovered. Some coworkers were great meanwhile others had no interest in actually doing their jobs.
The management seemed to be very solid. The people were good to work with, willing to help when they could. There was good structure and procedures for everything, which reduces confusion but also flexibility in getting things done.
Lots of opportunities to gain hands on experience within your position, about the commercial retail industry on a grand scale. But it is very difficult to advance within your position--management is great at moving people around if they desire to learn a new positions--so they don't have to pay additional employees. They are great company for freelance designers. This company is in major debt so people are spread very thin and work loads are very intense with no flexibility to work from home. So any projects worked on outside the office you are not compensated for. No funding for company sponsored events or outings. People in the work-place a generally stressed and underpaid. Oh and no half day Fridays or leaving work early expect if you plan to use that towards your PTO hrs.

Lack of budget and funding-- software systems are out of date, strict business dress codes, extremely expensive on site daycare, poor management, not allowed to work remotely, no mentoring programs implemented within the company, terrible work-life balance
I was an intern there and I worked in the backpack division where we looked at backpacks on a daily basis to see how well the sales were going as we were reaching peak season. I also helped with other various projects like allocating and competition shopping. On top of that it was really cool sitting in and participating in vendor meetings.
good pay and good environment to work
Responsible for assisting customers, working front end, soliciting credit application, online orders, surveys, find more online I learned how to recover and reset a department, JC penny is a computer-based company and I was trained how to look up accounts, make payments, opening up rewards accounts, inventory availability in-store and online, gift card activation, timeclock, The hardest part of the job is making your daily requirement for credit cards apps, surveys, and find more
My experience at JCPenney was a little less than undesirable. Although I had mo problems with my coworkers and the job environment wasn't too bad, I felt as if there was a lack of "color" in the workplace. This caused my interest and enthusiasm to decline, ultimately resulting in me quitting the job.

Short breaks, lack of communication, lack of training. lack of enthusiasm
Challenging environment. If you enjoy people....you will enjoy this job. High paced daily with something to work on daily. As a manager you are control on what environment you want to promote...both for your team and your Customers. You are also part of a Team of supervisors and management associates who in' most cases are all striving to improve the store environment. Promotions take place daily throughout the company and are communicated on a weekly basis.
You control your promotability
CEO's change too often.
