A typical day working at JcPenney's was just checking out customers all day while going back and forth cleaning the floors/fitting rooms when we got a chance. I learned how to manage the money and handle customers, also how to open and close registers. The management was okay when I worked there, they weren't very understanding on things and some of them didn't really do their job. The workplace is a nice store to work at, there is nice employees for the most part and always the same customers. The hardest part of the job is being busy with customers all day trying to clean the store before we get out on time. The most enjoyable part of the job is cleaning the store.
I love working retail after working at JCPenneys. The management was extremely nice and understanding of something went wrong. They will always work with your schedule if you are still in school, and you are always treated with respect.
I learned to have a lot more patience with difficult customers, however, I did enjoy 99.99% of them. It was nice when they only wanted to you for your exceptional service. It was hard to climb ladders and hang shelving. I adored the women whom I worked with, and they taught me a lot about the business - especially during the holidays.
As an employee of JCPenney i enjoyed my work because i was able to move into a higher position quickly. I was able to work with cutomers at first hand bases. I learned how to be a leader and the duties you must fulfill and perform. The hardest part of the job was trying to get all the sales associates to perform there job correctly and in a timely manner. I enjoyed helping the customers and having the privlege to be a team leader.
