JC Penney has been around for so long, but after almost going under in 2012, they really had to revamp their identity and climb out of the gutter. As an associate, I was okay with having sales goals, credit application goals, and individual tasks. As a manager, however, the responsibility of carrying the success of the company is a little over-bearing. It always feels like one bad day in sales can ruin the store. However, I would still say that JC Penney has been my favorite employer. Their inclusion tactics makes every employee feel like they are truly a part of something, no matter how small their title may be. They are the first company to give me a leadership position and see the potential I have in my career development. If you enjoy the numbers game and you want the team environment, JC Penney may be for you.
