The managers for this company are the reason it is failing. There is no money in the budget for part time employees to work, so all the full time employees can keep their insurance and PTO. So the full time employees pick up the slack. Then the full time employees are stressed because they are working the part time shifts and in turn take it out when they finally have money in the budget for the part time employees to work. No room for promotion or pay raise.
You and the other part-timers suffer together & build a bond.

This company was great to work for. MY particular location wasn't the best, but that was not a direct reflection of the company itself. Stores positions are great starter positions. Pay is as expected, but there is room for promotion and advancement opportunities so long as you prove your potential.
JCPenney is a great place to work. You seem to learn a lot about people and clothing. The staff were great friends, and the manager was fair. You met a lot of customers that became good friends to this day.
It was a good work place till the changes were made, Everyday of keeping customers happy and greeting them with a smile. Learned how to zone and rebuild walls for the season change. The management was okay not much of a people person. A environment that you could relax in. Holiday rush was kept you on your feet. The music.
Poor hours, low customer volume, too much demand. The job itself was nice, the co-workers were rude and if you weren't in the "clique" you always got the short end of the stick. Lot's of favoritism in the workplace.
My day started off by putting out diamonds and displays. I also had to account for all diamonds and the end and beginning of my shifts. I also had to deal with customers one on one and that was great met a lot of interesting people really enjoyed that.I also had to learn hoe to change watch batteries and be able to add and remove links on jewelry. even though I did not work for the company too long it was a great experience all the same.
I had the opportunity to work with people who respected me and my hands-on work ethic. Most of the people I worked with were dependable and had a good work ethic. The store managers and district managers that I worked for acknowledged my intelligence and sound judgment in making buying, merchandising, and personnel decisions.
Reasonable work schedules, good 401k and profit sharing, decent health insurance and sick pay plan, good vacation and holiday pay plan, et.
Merchandise buying positions were eliminated at all stores, transfer offered was 19 hrs away
OVERALL JCPENNEY'S IS A GREAT WORK ENVRIONMENT. YOU MEET NEW PEOPLE EVERY DAY AND THE CUSTOMERS ARE ALWAYS #1. THERE REALLY WASNT ANYTHING HARD ABOUT THE JOB. COMMING IN, DOING YOUR JOB, AND REMAINDING POSITIVE PLAYS A MAJOR ROLE IN CUSTOMER SERVICE.
stocking shelves with the correct shoe size and helping customers with their needs in the shoe department. managment was a pleasure to work with. enjoyable part of the job was the customers and fun employees.
A typical day at work is productive and planned out, so that your time can be maximized to completing tasks. My coworkers were fun to work with and the teamwork was great; although the hardest part came because of coworkers and the unnecessary conflicts amongst each other that would go undisciplined.
favoritism shown by management to select few associates
