I knew wben I was hired it was only a minimum wage job but thought annual raises were given. I only received one raise after working there three years. When I received a raise, it wasn’t even a full quarter! I only received a 22 cent increase! Really? They couldn’t round it up to 25 cents? The employee discount was great. The store manager pushes the associates to get credit card applications.
During the first hour of work I would start with inventory. I had to clean the carts and check the dressing room to make sure products weren't left behind. As things picked up, I would help work the register and provided customer service. Lastly, during the last few hours we would have to get ready for closing of the second half shift, which would be for individuals that are working till closing so first half associates would organize clothing and shoes. If you would work second shift most likely you will have about 2 full carts, so most of night shift individuals would work on carts and cleaning till closing.
I enjoyed working with my co-workers and I liked my job. The hours were not good as to having work weekends and holidays and the pay was not competitive. I stayed longer that I thought I would, because I liked my co-workers so much
I started working here when I moved.
When I got a better paying job I didn't leave .this job makes me feel good about myself, helping people is the greatest feeling.
The people you work with because family.
JC Penney is a great company. They care about their employees and customer service is their number one priority! They have great products. They offer associate discounts so we could buy merchandise at a discount. They have great security to prevent stealing.
When I joined, sales was empasized, selling small policies.
Then we set uo a call center to serve customers; service policies, jcp developed many memberships; insurance & travel club.
Facility was very spacious; with cafe for employee
Pep rally's to emphasize products, goals, activities.
Jcp had good benefits for employees, a match up to 6% on jcp stock. Purchases.
Good place to work.
JCPenney is an amazing company to work for! When their outlet stores were still in operation, they'd be the place to be for goods already 50% off. The managers earned their stripes and were older in age, rather than a bunch of obnoxious teenagers.
I had worked at JCPenney for three years before I quit. It was amazing when I first started with one of my favorite managers. Soon they had me closing all the time regardless of my open availability most of the time by myself. When a management positioned opened up I applied. I was told that I could not do the management position which was only to be a lead over a department because I did not get enough credit cards. I liked the job enough for a first job, but would not recommend if you plan to advance within a job.
I loved this job and hated when they closed the call center in my state. They were very competitive and gave incentives for high achievers. I wish there was another call center close to me that did the same kind of work!
This place is a train wreck. There is no loyalty to valued employees. The starting pay was recently increased so there are people coming in off the street making as much money as people that have worked there for years.
I found some paperwork left behind by a former supervisor that showed what they were making and compared to what we make, its shameful.
Most of the supervisors are nice and care about you but there are a few snakes that will share your personal information with anyone that will listen. Instead of working a lot of the supervisors sit around having inappropriate conversations with each other. Most of the best supervisors that were there have left the company.
Upper management is a joke, they are clueless about what they are doing and lack basic leadership skills.
Yearly reviews were based on things that I never got the chance to demonstrate
The coaching sessions are a joke because there were never any goals established for all of 2018.
A lot of inconsistency. Some people get fired fornone thing and others dont get fired for the same thing. It depends on who your supervisor is.
There have been so many changes in leadership and the direction of the company, it definitely is a company just trying to survive instead of thrive.
For a company whose motto is the Golden Rule, they certainly do not follow this
The training staff is great but also very behind the times. Training material is outdated and boring.
They recently installed lockers because so many people had their cell phones out while working but some of the supervisors are on their phones - több...
Working at JC Penny was my introduction to fashion. I loved the atmosphere and I was close with all my coworkers. JC Pennys gave us a great work day with managers that were easily approachable and were filled with knowledge of their merchandise and trained us on how to be beneficial to the company and their patrons.
Jcp is a decent job, but are very strict when it comes to attendance. Which wasn’t an issue but was difficult to manage when it was time for breaks, because the lunch room would be so full that it was impossible to get out of there and back from break on time
A typical day at JCPenney's was close. JCPenney's was my first job and I was a sales representative. When I started working at JCPenney's I was a temp and became part time.I learned how to hang up clothes, cash register, and assisting customers. Management was good very helpful. Anytime I have questions they were there to assist. The workplace culture was slow but everyone was nice and helpful. The hardest part of my job was not getting enough hours. The best part of my job was learning something new and learning the work environment as I assist customers.
