My typical day at work would consist of picking and packing online orders that customers had bought online. By picking, I mean taking one of the fabric shopping bags and looking throughout the store for the item the customer is ordering. Then I would take the orders back and put them one by one into boxes to later be packed. I also have to take care of the front register, which consists of giving customers their orders from the stock room and delivering it out,or returning their items and handling the payment method. What I've learned since I started working for JCPenney are: opening and closing registers, transferring calls, how to use a walkie-talkie (it was kind of obvious), and how to work for something. Things around the workplace were always relaxed we didn't really have employees so high-strung that they wanted to rip their hair out, but sometimes it go quite busy. The management were always kind and wiling to help out even if they always looked busy, they would talk to you and make friends with you and ask how you were doing.The hardest part of the job just so happened to be one of the required things to do. Picking was especially hard on me because I have Scoliosis and they don't exactly make braces for your upper back. It was made worse when the pain went to my hips and down my legs, but I would continue because my job wasn't done. On the other hand, the most enjoyable part of my job was the fact that when I am packing people's orders, I don't have to talk to anybody. Overall JCPenney is a good company to work for, you get a GREAT discount.
