Seriously, it's like I read about another one closing every week, if not day. The latest one is in Evansville. My husband works at one of them so this is starting to get me very nervous. Hopefully it's not as bad as it seems to me right now, but I... read more

I worked at a higher volume store for a year as a sales supervisor. It was the most frustrating, chaotic year of my life. Horrible scheduling for the associate and management. Unrealistically short staffing, and expecting 4 closing associates to... read more
JcPenney just laid off hundreds of their Custom Windows team including dispatchers and coordinators
I've read in several places now that JCPenney might be looking at another restructuring due to the major drop in price. I really hope this does not turn out to be the case, as we all know that restructuring means major layoffs. We already know some... read more
I know that our stock is down because of it, but I'm frankly glad to see Ellison gone. We can easily recover from this temporary slump in share price if the new CEO is somebody capable who is actually able to turn around JCPenney, unlike his or her... read more
When everybody is predicting drop in sales and earnings for the quarterly results, you know things are not getting better at JCPenney. I predect more layoffs in very near future... read more
And the dominoes keep falling. The latest one is JCPenney Home store in Peoria which is being consolidated into the JCPenney store at Arrowhead Towne Center. I hope the employees get a chance to move there as well, but I highly doubt it... read more
This is not a surprise as everybody knew what was coming after the sale of the building, but in case somebody missed it, here it is. J.C. Penney Co. Inc. has informed state of Wisconsin officials that layoffs of more than 520 employees at its massive... read more

This is really not good. It's not only that the stores are being closed, now JCPenney is closing its distribution and customer care center as well. Nearly 700 people in Wauwatosa will be out of a job by the end of summer. I think it's only a matter... read more
JCPenney to close its Galesburg, IL location. /
I was hoping we were on the way to recovery, but I guess I was wrong. It looks like JCPenney is on the death watch for this year together with Sears and Toys R Us. Dust off your resumes, everybody... read more
JCPenney is closing Hampton Village store in St. Louis. Sad end for a store that has stood there for nearly seven decades. I feel for 45 people who will be laid off as a result of this. This store is outside the already announced 138 stores, which... read more
I used to like working here. I truly did. But things have changed so much in the past several years that this became a completely different company. Scheduling s---s, plain and simple. Whether you are available or not, if the store thinks they need... read more
i'm sick and tired of being required to harass our customers into submitting credit card applications... not everybody wants it, we are antagonizing them into not returning if we continue on like this... i especially don't appreciate being threatened... read more
Got out after a year, but this was by far the worst job I ever had. Management's among the worse I've ever seen. Management at the store's completely unprofessional. The way they dress, bully employees, yell at staff with customers around... Those... read more
Dear JCPenny management, since you obviously have no idea what you're doing, here's a little lesson from the front lines. To earn money we have to sell our products. To sell our products we need customers. To have customers, we need to make sure they... read more
What are your honest thoughts about the likelihood of us surviving 2018 and beyond. There is so much speculation about the BK that I am not even sure that we can make it through the year. I am no finance person, and I'd be curious to see if there... read more
I spent last 10 years with our company and it'd be a real shame if they were to decide to lay people off from our offices in Plano.
Our store closed this month in Athens Texas! So sad! We were a great store with good employees!
The company needs to get back to basics. Customer service employees that care about their jobs, customers and the stores they work in. I'm sure Mr JC Penney is rolling over and over seeing how his company has gotten so far away from the golden rule... read more

working here's getting more frustrating every day. in addition to low pay, issues with scheduling, and absolutely no recognition for our hard work, the environment at my store has become increasingly more toxic day in day out. managers are... read more
Talk about having skewed priorities. It seems that the higher-ups at JC Penny have decided that customer experience is not even remotely as important as credit sales. If we disregard the fact that there are not nearly enough of us to make sure... read more
Employees make the difference. You must make the customers experience number one. Return customers is what you want. Employees need to focus on making it the best place to shop and JCP will grow and make it long term. If you don't want to help people... read more
You can whine all you want nothing changes here at JCP - I mean nothing - this are so rigid and people live in their little kingdoms, silos or fiefdoms - stone walls have been erected and you cannot change a thing here. Look at the management layer... read more

Does someone have this list of stores that JC Penney is planning to close in 2017. I heard the announcement today that they will be closing stores - this the list of things that I heard: Close 140 stores That represents 14% of the total number of... read more
They've just announced, JC Penney is closing about 140 stores in next few months (from now till the end of June). This means 6000 less jobs soon. They will be offering voluntary early retirement to supply chain and store workers as well as corporate... read more
This is a rhetorical question.
Just focus on work, focus on work, work, work. I know that people are concerned but there is nothing you can do about it - yes, I did hear about layoffs in Plano.
All employees will be laid off. New times.
