Good company with decent benefits and decent amount of opportuntites

Area Manager (Former Employee)
Cedar Hill, TX (US)

I worked at J. C. Penney full-time for more than a year

Prosjcp is not scared to place you in a role that you have no experience in. Multiple locations throughout the country which provides opportunities for advancement if willing to locate.

ConsLimited opportunities if not willing to locate. If a position is offered to you and you turn down the position (due to location or job preferences), it is difficult to advance.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should evaluate their distribution center HR policies as there are a multitude of under-performing supervisors and managers who cannot be dismissed from the company due to the Pro-employee approach they take. This effects moral of quality employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
