Typical day at work you would look at your emails and see if there are any pirorities and get them done then do you list of things. The culture is great. The hardest part of the job is dealing with a mean customer.
My day would start by setting sales goals for the day. I would then walk the sales floor to ensure we were ready and full for that days business. I would ensure that the staff was aware of all current sale ads that were running at that time.
Always room for advancement
Great customers, and employees
Excellent caring company
Fun and healthy environment
Can be stressful
Clean store and very organized
Great discount and sales all the time
This job was great while I needed it. I worked hard and got 2 promotions due to the high turnover of the job field. Although I got the 2 promotions I was still making less than 12 an hour. I would work there again if I absolutely had to but do not plan on it. I can tell you one thing though, I put the clothes back in a nice fashion because I now know how difficult it is as an employee to fold for hours.
Now I’m just going by my experience at the location i worked at, things could be totally different at a location that has enough money to hire more help and not expect 1 person to do the job of 4 people!! I have never in my life experienced any type of management like i just experienced. I will never ever recommend jcpenny as a company for anyone to work at. Poor management (micro managers) that honestly have the worst attitudes and tempers!!!
JCPenney is a great team environment to be a part of. The management gave a lot of autonomy to its team members to take care of the customers. The ultimate goal was to take care of the customers and help them have a positive experience.
A typical day consists of running the store, responding to LOD calls, putting truck merchandise to floor. The management team is great. The most enjoyable part of my job is doing merchandise sets and working with customers.
I had the pleasure of working with good managers and employeees. The PTO, compensation, and benifits were on par with other jobs. The only down side is having to worry about whether your store will be open in the next few years.
Able to take care of employees and customers in fun new ways
Normal day would be to begin with walking your areas to see if needed merchandising and merchandise to put out. You would Coach and help with answering any customer issues throughout the day. Also, develop planning strategies for upcoming events or visits from upper management. Complete any opening and closing procedures within the store. Give annual evaluations to associates within your area.
