Good to work for
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.

Good pay, Bad atmosphere
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.

Busy atmosphere but never stressful.
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.

Well paid
Well paid job but 8 hour shifts were draining. Quite flexible with hours if told in advance. Given more hours than contracted for but wasn't forced to take them. Overall lovely place to work once you make a few friends and do your job properly.
