Company Culture

JCPenney is getting rid of older emplyees to save money no matter what their performance. Many store managers have been driven from the company because of unreasonable expectations. The amount of help keeps shrinking.

Teamwork

They do promote teamwork. At the store it is generally good. The problem is the feeling of 'or else' from the home office.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Same as aboce

What I dislike about the company

Getting rid of tenured associates to save money. Expectations unreasonable.

Gender Equality

There are only a few male employees at this location, but every one is still treated respectfully.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I do wish that our management would communicate better with their employees, and it would be better for all of us if we were given more hours instead of hiring new employees.

What I like about the company

The environment is great, mostly positive. The company wants its employees to be happy and successful, and they work with your school and family schedules.

What I dislike about the company

Customers can be awful, which is normal in customer service, but our store is always a mess because we can never get off the registers to recover the store, which leads to some of the angriest customers you will ever deal with. The employees are mostly friendly to each other, but like most businesses there can be drama.
