"Poor management! Store manager belittles every associate in the store. Associates report it and nothing ever happens. No transfer or promotion opportunities unless you are part of the click. If you put in a complaint there is retaliation."

"I've worked for JCPenney for 3 years and I loved it up until the point that I was laid off. The job wasn't hard for me to do nor was it time consuming. I started off from freelance graphic designing, to a senior web developer. I would love to do something along that line of work to show them they laid off a very valuable asset to there entity."

"I've worked here for quite a while. I have a new rude manager that is only there for the check and not the employees. I do love working there but I would rather have someone who loves the company and praise their employees and doesn't put them down. The employees work very hard in my store!!"
