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

Pros

jcp 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.

Cons

Limited 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 ManagementAdvice

Management 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Feel that the Executives are trying to change too much without thoroughly assessing the pros/cons through. Also feel that the company is confused- unsure which direction that it is currently
