the culture was awful at the Penny's I work at. they don't pay their employees a decent wage, in fact my pay was cut from an hourly to a commission when the company stocks tanked below $3. the pay tiers for commission require that you sell five hundred thousand dollars per year in order to move to the next tier and then maintain it. our entire store's goal for sales was less than three hundred thousand. the managers often sat in the back office instead of walking the sales floor and if you called for assistance they would be reluctant to come out.
JCPENNEY is great for the customer and you if you believe in customer is always right. But there needs to be more flexibility in work hours and job duties. There aren’t enough consequences when you are not performing to company standards.
Barely above average experience while employed by JCPennys. Underappreciated and overall felt the store handling was disorganized. More job security or growth opportunities would have helped. Ok for a temporary part time job.
