JCP salons in certain areas that don't do well you will be working to stay poor. They start you at $9 and make you work like a sweat shop taking clients just to get commission on services product commission is not at a reasonable percentage. They have sales that only hurt stylist and the education is only given if you can make it to a central location educators don't go to salonsseachsalon to ensure
Salon manager was awesome however the other managrment team members treated the salon employees like corporate employees. Its a great place to start your hairstylist career because you're paid an hourly wage while building a clientele and part time employees are offered benefits. Huge bonus! More salon advertisement by the store is needed and additional store signage would have been great to let customers know a salon is present. Corporate obviously does not appreciate having a salon in store.
A typical day at work would be sitting around hoping someone saw our sign for haircuts out front and actually walk into the salon. I learned that the Lead on duty system worked until they did not want to come back to the salon to help considering our manager was never there. The culture of the work place was laid back for the most part but stressful when the manager was there and took her home life frustrations out on every one in the salon. The hardest part of the job was re organizing the shelves and inventory. The most enjoyable part of the job was putting a smile on someones face just by their hair or even seeing a smile back on someones face once you restore their confidence just by cutting or coloring their hair.
JCP salons are structured towards and dedicated to giving their stylists every opportunity to succeed! Between the training courses they PAY you to attend, marketing tools, free product samples for potential new clients, they strive to remove any obstacles along your path to success within their company.
Very impressed with the Top 20 Stylist mandatory course! It was my second time taking the course and an excellent motivational refresher!
The mandatory minimum revenue required to bring in per hour can be difficult to meet within the time frame given to build a clientele IF you are relocated from another state and don't know anyone. This was the ONLY reason I am no longer with the company. Its ABSOLUTELY possible but, prepare to sell yourself with the same effort outside of work hours to meet your goal...if you have clients?? JCP is an excellent salon to transfer to!
If I had one complaint it would be that the prices didn't match the out of date atmosphere.. They wanted the girls to bring in a million dollars before rewarding them with upgrades..my opinion was they were doing it backwards..give them the atmosphere that allows them to bring in the million...
It felt like the equivalen to someone that just sat down at a run down mom&pop restaurant and realized the menu is priced as high as a 4-5 star restaurant..regardless of how much they LOVE the food, if they are going to spend 5 star money, why not enjoy a 5star atmosphere? Leaving the stylists to work twice as hard to keep clients loyalty.
I did see an article about JCP salon remodeling their salons due to a corporate - több...
Employee discount ..a shoe girls dream!!, The salon manager in Winston Salem, NC was the BEST manager I've had through out my entire career!
The pay scale to earn commission is set quite high and base wages are below average.
I was apart of the JCP team for 3yrs, and I loved it. From helping staff to class refreshers, JCP ensures your technical skills are up to date. I've learned so much about being both a stylist and customer service professional there. Total recommendation!
My job as a cosmetologist and retail associate has been an excellent opportunity to display my positive energy along with my talent. The management at Jcpenny's is quality but does not provide benefits to associates that are promised.
Continuing education traning, flexible schedule, and positive work environment.
No healthcare due to limiting employees to 30 hours and occassionally no breaks
Ask receptionist about you scheduled clients, make sure station is clean, organized and ready for clients.

The most enjoyable part is the clients
