JCpenny is a professional environment where it is clear management is always trying to work in harmony with both part time and full time associates. In a business where customer complaints are often JCpenny does well enough to provide support to its employees during moments of customer conflict. Though the company provides little opportunity for pay raises.
Pros
Consitent hours, professional work environment
Cons
Next to no opportunities for pay raises

There is enough gray area where you can be a creative leader in your problem solving efforts. I particularly enjoy the ability to develop my team. It is unfortunate that the sins of past leaders are haunting the company, because the company really has great people.

It’s a pretty relaxed environment for the most part. For what I do, I can work at my own pace except when the days are busy. But I don’t get payed enough. And you have to be careful of what you say or do cause they’re fast to spread the word around.

I was given a chance regardless having a disability. I love all my superiors and coworkers. JC Penny is an awesome place to work and I would love to make this place my career. I was diagnosed with a rare syndrome and they see what I can do instead of what I cannot do. Thank you.
Pros
Great place to work, employee discount, great management
Cons
no accountability for workers

It's a very active job, I had great co-workers. Honestly, I was lucky, I had heard lots of horror stories of past managers and other workers. What makes our breakers this specific job title are those you work with in your department and management. Because the pay is not something you can really settle with.

I love the ongoing training, teambuilding workshops and growth opportunities. It was a fun, relaxed and productive work environment. This company is very goal driven. I appreciated the fact they believe in recognizing and rewarding the hard work of their employees.

morning meetings to get the day started filled with exciting company focus. leading a team to meet daily goals was rewarding. expectations of management was inconsistent and lacked team building environment. truly enjoyed helping customers made some really good friends and the associates just want to know that management cares and I TRIED TO BE THAT ROLE MODEL

A typical day at work consisted of folding cloths, making sure items were off of the floor and put where they needed to be, and assisting customers if they had any questions or concerns. I learned how to be more customer oriented. I loved the people that I worked with. everyone was so nice and friendly. the hardest part of the job was trying to keep up with the store with little number of employees. the most enjoyable part was seeing what you accomplished during a hard day at work
Pros
Prizes for special events
Cons
Short breaks

Was a great place to work, friendly associates and managers despite usual work drama. After all the changes the company kind of went downhill cutting hours and all.

Jc Penney can be a great place to work. The company continues to cut jobs, even newer positions that were created for the new transition. There is no job security there. Hundrends of full time employees in positions, not sales associates, have been let go in mass numbers from the corp. office in Plano as well as store level. The stores spend too much payroll hours on constantly changing the prices (mark ups, mark downs, promotions), that there is little left to spend on when the customers are there in the store shopping. There is not enough floor coverge. The customers are walking around looking for help. The one or two employees are in a fitting room hanging up mounds of clothes that don't fit the customers. No one is around to help the customers.
Pros
great work-life balance. good marketing ads, t.v. .e-mail, and print.
Cons
the family insurance is too expensive per paycheck, not enough floor coverage to help customers or support the business.

I work from 4am till 12 pm. I supervise 11 people doing receiving merchandise for a retail store. I enjoyed being a part of the JC Penney replenishment team,we were like a big family and had lots of fun.The management team and I worked together to get the job done in a timely manner,however there were some commucation issues. The hardest part of the job was getting up at 2:30 am. My team was like my family and I enjoyed that
Pros
great benefits
Cons
not unified
