We don't have an AP security person in the store most days. Is this happening everywhere or just my store?
Does anyone know whats going on in the workplace, new store managers with less experience, no leadership skills and stressing credit, lead by example, if a store manager can ask for credit i think it would inspire the rest of the employees.
I wasn’t happy and I left 3 year ago for a competitor. The culture is like night and day. There is more of an employee focus than I’ve ever experienced with JCP, which include annual raises and quarterly bonuses. Benefits are great and my coworkers... — read more

Just when it seemed we were going in the right direction they start cutting hours again, and the only way to get more hours is to kiss up to the management. New changes to days when we have trucks as well.
Plenty of eliminations company wide today from ASM to field positions including specialty businesses. What a shame

Or is JCPenney closing all stores permanently tomorrow?
Judging by everything that is happening in this company, I no longer trust our management at all. I have no reason to trust them. They have proven many times that we are all just a number to them. It’s awful to work in a company in which there is... — read more
