Loved working in penneys I've had 4 contracts all of which were 3 month contracts, it's very hard progress when you don't even have a permanent job. We are sometimes understaffed so I know they need us temps there. I could be let go at any time and have no security.
Lovely managers and great working environment.

Good pay and excellent hours.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
No security

Was employed there last year for summer and I loved it! It was my first ever job! The pay was fantastic and the managers/management and other staff were good to get on with. Gave me good experience for my future career. I applied to work during the Christmas at the time but I never got it! I really loved working there, it was my fave job and I had no problems with it at all!
Pros
Good pay, great first job for people who are starting out in the workplace

Very draining work, junior management on power trips, new staff/younger staff treated with no respect, a lot of drama/pettiness with managers
Management and HR have no concern about the individual workers or their personal life as they are seen as disposable. Older staff look down upon new arrivals and almost seem territorial as they have been there their whole lives. The work itself is not too bad consists of folding , and mostly cleaning the shop floor. Staff are not allowed to converse with eachother and almost seems school like which I feel odd
Pros
Salary, First pick of clothes and sale items
Cons
Unprofessional management, lack of respect for workers

Good to work for , good pay but should be increased for what you do. It can be stressful at time's but it can be satisfying aswell. Love the interaction with the customers especially the older one's.

Worked here for a a number of years, at first I loved it but as the years went on the life was sucked out of me. Lots of cliques. It was too stressful, and the pressure that certain managers put us under. One rule for one person and one rule for others. The wages were good the sick pay was good the holiday pay was good but at the end of the day the money and job wasn't worth it. Found it to be a very toxic environment.

I am blessed to have made some very good friends from there and also had the pleasure of having some lovely managers. It's ok for a first job and to get experience in retail.

Working at Penneys was a real confidence builder.
Throughout my time in Penneys I was trained in many different areas such as the tills, shoes, rails and the kids section. Handling cash was something I hadn't done before but management made sure everyone had the opportunity to learn.

There was never a boring day because I was placed into a different section every shift.

Cons
none
