Someone stop this guy. What does he have naked pictures of someone who can fire him? It has to be something. He isn't shy about firing anyone, everyone he labels not a good fit for his visions. The time as come to give Ron his walking papers.

I will never ever step foot in their stores again. Such poor treatment of employees.

This just in, new layoffs round after the Valentine Massacre planned, they will be firing about 4,000 mannequins. Rumors are Ron fired all the carbon based employees, these are all that are left. "We hung the iPads round the necks of the mannequins for customers to use to check out, to be revolutionary, yet, again, we will be duct taping checkout iPads to roof support beams. We will be given each of our loyal mannequins, who have worked for JCP, not Penny's, for 30 or more years, a gift certificate for free JCP cups of coffee for a month, plus free wifi access while they look for work.".

Seriously, I expect to hear this.

At my local stores they put nearly all the mannequins near the entrances, probably to make it appear theres actually customers in the stores.

Does apple have mannequins? Ron is so attached to apple I wonder how he has handled anything thats not apple?

I mean just look at how great he is running JCP:(

Oops mistake, Ronnie, the JCP clown, purchased 40,000 new mannequins last year.
Amazing isn't it 40,000 of them. Got an idea of that bill?

yep they are bleeding money because ron johnson did near everything wrong, and drove away their core customer. he offended the very people who paid the bills by buying stuff. In addition in a search to save money fired most of his long term hard working employees, gutting customer service, and destoying his company.

he should of test marketed his ideas before rolling them out to the entire chain and appears to have a god complex because he once worked for apple. the problem is JCP is NOT APPLE...
