"I worked in the installation part of custom blinds and drapes. I had little to no training. I like the challenge this gave me, but due to the relation ship of my manager I was not given the chance needed to improve on my skills."

"I worked for JC Penney in the late 90's as a second job to save money for a down payment on a house. I returned to JC Penney in the summer of 2013. I am happy to work there and to learn about retail sales and customer support in the sales area. This is a good company to work for although this is not within my career goals or experience. I am respected by peers and appreciated by management."

With the recent release of the short time CEO, Mr. Johnson and the reinstatement of former CEO, is bringing the company back around and reinstating it's place as not only a great place to shop but a great place to work as well."
