typical day at work would be to put things in locker, clock in and go down to the sales floor, finding which dept. you'd be working in and start fixing clothes, clearance, and other things all the way on the other side of the register you'd be assigned to. This was really bad specially if you were the only one working in your dept. unable to see customers unless they went looking for you, or just left to another register. learned almost nothing extra from my previous retail job besides you having to be working like a robot, weren't allowed to even stand still for even 5 mins out of your entire shift, else you would get in trouble, a girl lied to a manager about what I told her when she had asked to me pick up a clearance area one time when working in the bra and panties area. which got me in trouble and the manager was very rude to me warning me that she'd cut my hours if I didn't fix the problem. The day after I came in worked more than half my shift was called to the managers office only to be "let go" for not being productive enough, when I was busy running around all day doing my best to keep things organized and neat looking, being that the person I was to work with had called in for being sick. Jcpennys expects way to much from employees, people are not robots and can only be fast enough, or busy enough to a point. Will probably never shop or work here again.
good assosiate discount, most employees were nice
almost no breaks, expect to much from employees, lie to you, bad hours, bad pay
