Job security

How is job security at JCP these days? I work at Macy's and I'm desperately looking for a way out. JCP in my area is hiring but I don't want to end up in a situation where I'd leave one position just to be let go within a few months or a year from my... —  read more

Things have improved

From the looks of it, this is not the case for all locations but it is for mine. Since the change in ownership we've also had a change in management at our store and for once we've got people who care about what's going on and who want to help... —  read more

10 Years

Can you believe it? Next month will mark the 10th anniversary of the beginning of JCP’s Decade of Ruin. It all began in earnest in February 2012…with the elimination of coupons and significant cuts to staffing in most stores. Be sure to send your... —  read more 

Store Management

Please JCPENNY stop making these store managers make us come to work with covid 19, example league city, people working with covid asked to come to work makes no sense to us working 😕 here.

Another store gone

JCPenney’s at San Jacinto Mall in Baytown has closed its doors for good. This was not unexpected. Just another in a long line of closings and it's certainly not going to be the last. I hate seeing how low JCPenny has fallen. We were once a respected... —  read more

Wages

I saw somewhere that JCP will pay associates an $2 an hour for working weekends during the holidays. Do they really think that this is the same as a permanent pay increase? JCP is hopelessly screwed up.

bonus/double dipping

For over five years no raise, store managers allowing people to take pto and show up to work double dipping in pay, all about what you know and who you know and how can i work the system, if you want a store ran correctly hire the right person

leadership lacks

We swear if people keep calling out at this location by baybrook mall we quitting, stressed out, manager is lazy. Make me the store manager and changes will come, where is the accountability at

Having fun

This may seem a little petty, but our manager despises when we are enjoying our work. It's like everybody has to hate their lives and working here to make her happy. Of course she usually shows up in a bad mood and we purposefully get under her skin... —  read more 

How much do you care?

When I talk to colleagues from my store, most don't care if the store closes. Of course, there is fear because our existence still depends on it, but I want to say that the motivation is low that people care less and less if the store closes... —  read more 

Remember when?

We had legitimate reviews that provided us with adequate raises? Our schedules were realistic and we had appropriate time off. We weren’t overworked due to a shortage of staffing. Retail today has changed so quickly. It seems the new norm is to hire... —  read more 

store updates?

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.

Why are you STILL here?

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
