Severance Pay in Installments

This can't be! Installment payments..,what in the world is going on? It's as if they told us this in advance but I never heard this from the company until now. My take is that they should just pay us all of our severance and let move on.

Closing Date Changes

Sept 27, 2020 original closing date with exit date of Sept 30,2020. Now they are changing the game when some of us have jobs lined up to report to and holding our severance pay over our heads. What a disgrace on their part! We have agreed to hold... —  read more

This is just the beginning

I feel for the people who were just notified that their store is closing but we will all be in their shoes soon enough. It should be obvious to everybody by now that JCP is beyond saving. They'll try to slow down the bleed by closing more and more... —  read more 

Got laid off

Thankfully I'm not the only breadwinner in my household so my situation isn't too dire but I still can't help but feel like garbage. I didn't know I would get the boot so soon. What a horrible year this has been.
