Every day at work was usually the same as before. I would greet customers and ask them if they needed help finding anything. The managers there were adequate. I enjoyed my job at JCPenney the only thing that I struggled with was that my schedule wouldn't fit with theirs and it was always difficult finding somebody who would work for me. The thing I enjoyed most at this job was pretty much everything. I enjoy retail quite a bit and I would enjoy working in it again. My schedule has actually opened up quite a bit since I've got to college.
I worked in operations they expect you to work at a fast pace at all times there was little to no breaks given management doesn’t care about your days off they will call you to come in anyway. When corporate or district showed up they would make believe everything was running smoothly but when they are not there it is a total mess. The turnover was ridiculous.
Management at my store had it out for me from day one. I would routinely go entire pay periods getting no hours, which made it nearly impossible to survive. Pay was meager. I did, however, make several friends with fellow employees in my brief time at Penney's.
Good place to work, friendly environment and management. Fairly flexible hours, simple once you learn the computer system. Mostly fun and friendly employees to work with, both young and old (mostly females). Hardest part of the job is learning the ins and outs of the computer system, and making commission sales. Also takes a while to learn where everything is within the store (which is what most customer questions are about). Also get a nice 25% discount and exposure to good coupons.
