Bad or lack of management/pay sucks
Managers never stick around. Usually they end up leaving or resign after inventory. No management help when things go wrong. Computers registers, printers always broken with no support to fix. Lack of supplies, people doing their job. Pay is unfair, underpaid, and favoritism goes on. Leads or supervisors care more about sitting in the back office eating snacks then involving themselves in the customer environment.
Pros
Flexible hours, some nice people
Cons
Bad management or no management. Underpaid.

loved it
I loved being their receptionist. It was a great experience. Everyone was nice and welcoming but drama was a huge issue there. Its a good job to have if youre just looking for something quick.

Struggling Retailer
JCPenney can't decide what to sell or who the target market is. They are constantly adding new products at a great expense and then deciding it was a mistake and removing them. This is most evident with their Martha Stewart line as well as big ticket items such as furniture and appliances. They have been through many CEOs and none of them has been able to stabilize JCP. They are constantly hounding you for not getting enough credit applications. It is like working in a pressure cooker. Much stress.

JC Penney Promenade
Terrible work environment, terrible management, poor hours, all lumped into a dying mall. It may have changed now, but at the time it was poorly managed and the sales were poor.

Flexible hours. Only good thing about working there.
They don’t pay you enough for the work that they ask you to do. Especially not enough for the very rude customers that you will often get. Cheap with “raises”
Pros
Flexible schedule.
Cons
Pay very little, bad management

My time there was fun
Working at this specific location was fun. It would definitely be my suggestion for college students/seniors who need some extra cash and enjoy using their 25% discount! The management was a little high strung and annoying but the actual staff were pretty cool. If you’re looking for an actual career I’d say to choose a different department or look elsewhere.
Pros
A lot of overtime offered, very flexible with scheduling, very fun coworkers, great meeting new people and helping customers. Most of the customers were pleasant.
Cons
Not a career job, pay was low for an adult with bills or someone with kids, management was a bit high strung and contradictory

It's okay
It's okay. The pay isn't great and the work environment is alright. They leadership group doesn't seem to care that much. It's the kind of job that is usually only temporary.

Made to feel like a failure
Corporate expects you to have things planned 3 weeks in advance without giving you the proper tools to do so. And then they change things at the last minute- almost every time.

No work/life balance.


Pay was a living wage
Pros
Pay was a living wage
Cons
Not given proper tools to succeed

Overall the company is not bad, Just the management needs a lot of communication and needs to be on task. Due to issues from time to time, managers doesn't help much when their employees are going through difficult.

Fun workplace
Working at jcpenney was a great experience for me. ALL the managers were so nice and easy to talk to.
They made it fun to try to make as many friends as possible (trying to get customers to apply for a jcpenney credit card). They had drawings,prizes,giveaways, etc.

Jcpenney was the best place I have ever worked for.
