What a joke while the employees are losing their hours and benefits... Nothing against CEO Ron Johnson because after all he's a businessman and he knows what he's doing.... Good luck to all the regular employees who have dealt with all the changes and didn't get anything good out of it.

((This guy cashes in on the backs of all they people that worked there whole lives to build up the company. Just when he get in power he cuts everyone that he can to biuld his vision on americans fav dept store. What does that mean no one is full time people get 8 dollars and hour no benifits and no 401k not to say he cut humdreds of manager jobs out of stores to fund his rap of the american comsumer. They think the prices are good they are the same sale price as they always were. A lot of the products are marked up 1 cent more that thet were. U be the judge 1ooo of tiems maked up but told to comsumers it cheaper. This guy will leave richer than befor just like he did at apple and target then he will steal there ideas and sell them to some other comapny as his own.

It is very unfortunate that so many people lost their jobs. Most of management was let go and a few others. Out with the old and in with the new. And a slap for those that were let go, they're looking for their replacements.

Well check out the loot Ron's crony Target buddy, Francis got, he canned him in 9 months, Ronnie the JCP clown has such an ego he took over his duties, amazing for a guy who flys in from Ca to Texas on a private jet for 2-3 days work.

And yet the new multi tasking JCP checkout clerk gets less than 39.99 hours a week, and their commission was taken away. Amazing, he has revolutionized and created the Chinese workshop equivalent in retail. Guess that is why he likes to call store aisle, The Street, peddlers selling goods they themselves can not afford.

JCP doesn't deserve anyone's money. Penny's as we know it is gone.

For those too lazy to click the link..

"Because despite leaving just 9 months after his hiring, Francis is entitled to collect a whopping $9 million in pro-rated signing bonus (alongside $100,000/month in salary): all in all - a tidy package of $10 million for shooting the breeze while observing a sinking retail ship."

That is a lot of Chinese made socks some min wage JCP peddler has to sell to cover that gift.

the average employee gets 21 hours a week if they are good workers. most people get around 15 hours. this guy has made JCP a joke to most people who shop there. minimum wages, no benefits. people who worked there for 20 yrs have been laid off. it's is just so sad. i have no respect for this guy.

Well Ron MUST GO for any attempted recovery. But sad as it is I think penneys cant recover, he has done far too much damage, and fired most of its once loyal customers.
