I was laid off when JC Penney restructured. I loved my job. Prior to that it was well run, I learned a lot, and met some great people. Their restructure will unfortunately be the downfall for this company. The way I rated them was at the onset of their transformation, when work life balance and job security were important to them. There really was no typical day at work because every day was different, with different customers and situations. Retail management really makes you learn how to think quickly on your feet because your are most times dealing with a customer in person. I found the fact that there was really no typical day the most enjoyable part of the job.
