they have good benefits if you work 40 hours a week. They took away the health benefits from all employees. The employees at the Stockton store are fun to work with. It's fast paced, but it's a little more relaxing and the bosses are very friendly. They make sure that you're okay and ask if you need any help.
The company has not been doing well, stock market at a low, management is very negative and criticizing, lack of communication, Inconsistent hours, have to work all holidays rather than being with family
I was expected to work as fast as possible all day long and the environment was very hostile. I was yelled at several times for not working hard enough or fast enough even though I was doing my best and not even taking any breaks. I had a horrible experience working for this company.
At JC Penney, my day started with a general overlook of the shoe department just picking up loose ends. Twice a week I ran inventory and the other days I made sure everything was priced correctly, stocked and organized properly, and made sure the sales were put up on time. Management instructed if necessary, but most of the time I was left alone to do my work.
All started out okay, but went down kill as the years went on. They weren't family friendly. I had my first child and then they took all my hours away and never gave them back. Medical problems popped up and they didnt want to work with me even though it wasnt preventing me from doing my job, just needed more doctors appointments and flexibility with my schedule because I had to work around childcare too. It was also right about the change in ownership and all the pricing changes and sign changes.
I was excited to start there only to find out that a lot of the employees hated the job. It was a high paced job and they jumped me all over the store with no appreciation. After about six months I went from getting full time hours to getting four hours a week.
Going to work for JCP, was the best decision I made, I only wish I had been able to stay. It's by far the one company I want to return to. There was a change in management at my store, the incoming manger did not like the prior manager who hired me, and forced everyone who he had hired out.
most of the people were nice and the store had a great environment to work in
changing management can be very difficult if the one who was promoted was well loved.
I worked at Penneys for two years and I loved every minute I was there and never had a bad day. I was in sales support so I never knew what I would be doing when I started work and that made the job better than doing the same thing over and over everyday. The chemistry was right, everyone got along fine. The store has been closed for years but the employees rent a country club every year for a Christmas party. The people just like each other.
very quick paced but will definitely enjoy getting to know the customers and helping them find what they need. management changes quiet a bit and some management is not needed due to their lack of wanting to work.
It's a good first job for a teenager or a college student. There aren't many opportunities for advancements and they rarely promote within. If you don't like working in customer service this is not the place for you.
