    What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable? How does JCPenney stack up against the competition?

    Worked at Penney's headquarters for a year contract. It was one of the most unethical experiences in my career. First of all, I am black and there is subtle racism. All the people in positions of importance are white females in their prime--late 20s to early 30s. Not one manager of color. I was hired on to be a creative writer. I did that very well with no problem my 1st 6 months. Then they switched around departments and it was a nightmare: awful manager who was critical, controlling. Couldn't do anything up to her standards and everyone else hated her too! But when I asked to moved back to my original job, they said no. Then my "contract ended." They basically fired me for not performing a job that they didn't hire me to do in the first place! Will never shop there again and neither will my family or friends. Stay away from this corrupt institution!

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at JCPenney? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at JCPenney?

    My borther worked for Penney's since high school he was a manager for years then age came on and that was it Penney's let him go they also let 3 other managers go some year so be very careful if you are looking long term.

    It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at JCPenney? Any advice on striking the right note?

    I have relocated to NC from VA. I have taking my written test and past. Now I'm just waiting to take the practical test, but that's until may 4th. Would it be possible to work without a licence. Perhaps just to shampoo.
