"While I appreciate my time and learnings that JC Penney provided me in my almost 9 years of employment, there were ups and downs that the company was unable to facilitate due to the companies failures. As the company's goals changed with their strategy, there were major shifts that also changed within the work environment. From my observation these shifts happened as the goals became less creative and more analytical, thus driving away those talents. An environment that is under threat due to falling stocks, and continually change, creates a toxic workplace. The ability to work as a team began to dissolve as associates protected themselves, and it became a "blame game" and created further friction. While I believe there are great leaders, associates, and strategies for the company, I do not recommend working there in a creative or "private brand" area. Wishing the Warriors the best as they come back to the front lines from the COVID 19 pandemic."

"I have worked at JCPenney Headquarters for about two years and have enjoyed my experience. Many opportunities to network and build skills if you have the drive to take those opportunities and run with them. Very set in their ways as a company and if you can't learn and adapt to them, you will have difficulty."

Jewelry Specialist
in Pocatello, ID

"I really enjoyed working with my coworkers, but have not been impressed with corporate responses to different difficulties. Mainly the response to COVID-19, I have worked for the company for almost 4 years and received zero compensation during this pandemic, I had to use all my PTO that I didn't get to even see until working for the company for 3 years. I love the environment, but regret wasting my time at a company that only cares about paying their CEO's millions while not caring whether or not their employees can feed themselves throughout the week. If you plan on working for a short period I recommend working for JCPenney, but if you expect to find you career here, I highly recommend you look somewhere else.This company truly only has a couple years of business left."
