"Your experience is going to highly depend upon the department and manager. I've only worked in one department and the environment for women has not been great. I've worked under 2 managers and my first manager was awesome My second manager is so, so"

"over all my departments omnichannel and IT have been flexible with taking time off. We get 10 flex fridays where we can take a half day and PTO is based around how long you've worked since the age of 25. More experienced workers get more time off when they are hired"

"Even though there are predominantly more women than men in the merchandising side, unfortunately women tend to be each other's biggest critics. "

"Each store varies greatly and what is comes down to is the general manager. At the store I worked at management was only males. The general manager, HR, sales manager, merchandiser, all men. the supervisors over each department however are mostly women. Proving that at JCP a women can be a department supervisor maybe not make it to a general manager though."

"I worked at JCPenney for probably two years after college while looking for a teaching job. I covered many different positions in a small store including the sales floor and unloading trucks. For the most part everything was good, my biggest problems were straight up management within the corporation. Those were a lot of the type of issue every major employer would have. What really irked me, though, was one of my coworkers who was a week away from giving birth on Black Friday. She was forced to do the same 7 hour and 6 hour shift as everyone else despite the fact that she could barely stand at times and her feet were about twice their normal size. Other coworkers and myself protested this and asked that our shifts be extended so that she wouldn't have to work this, but to no avail. She wasn't supposed to sit on the shift but we covered for her so she could sneak a rest every now and then. I understand that in order for them to keep things equal everyone has to work Black Friday, but the truth is equal isn't always fair. I also know that in other stores older ladies (including an 80 year old) were forced to do the same kind of shift. Overall I had a good experience at Penney's, but I feel that they need to look into how they treat their employees when there are extenuating factors such as being ready to give birth any day."

"I worked there for around 3 years and I loved it, they treat everyone the same and it seemed more like a family than work associates. I would recommend this company to anyone!! I had to have surgery and they gave me the time I needed to recovery and always made sure I was doing ok and was not over doing it when I came back. Great place to work!!"

"You are just a number. You are expected to carry the load of 3-4 employees so the company can save money. No recognition for job well done unless you are the store managers favorite. Meaning, young, cute and blonde."

"I've been passed over three times for promotion. Twice they hired from the outside, once from within. Each time the person was less qualified and younger."
