I got hired as a seasonal, and I'm kind of glad they decided not to keep me. I worked recovery and cashier. I was hired for recovery mostly, but I liked being a cashier best. I was fine with doing what my job title was supposed to do. But, the management and all that was completely HORRIFYING. The management started becoming worse when they got a new one. There's this one lady from the management that had a problem with me and I have no idea why.
Don't work for this company, when you have problem in your job, nobody can come and help you. You are always alone . You don't have enough training for your position , but the management expecting that you have to do anything.
JCP didn't care about you as a leader it was all about sales sales which i completely understated. But when you work for someone that is dis honest and only cares about self it makes it hard. I cant to work and get the job done not kiss someone butt to get ahead.
Jcpenney is an amazing retail company itself. Everyday, we are tasked to meet a credit goal, so that itself was a good challenge to help me grow. The work culture is very friendly and inviting, although my new store that I was transferred to was a lot more competitive than my prior store. Overall, I really enjoyed working for the company and im grateful to have had this experience.
they promised me at least 20 hours a week, they are barely giving me 8 hours a week. the very first day on the job the person that was supposed to be training me never spoke to me and was on the phone almost the entire time. and every day I have worked after, the people are always on their phone. I have asked for more hours and have not got them
This is a place that works out if you are a student and need a part time job and don’t have work experience. You will be payed minimum wage no benefits or vacations. In fact they will even not give you payed sick days. You will be scheduled 5hrs and have to take a 30 min break so basically you only get paid 4.30hrs which is a waste of 30 mins if you ask anybody. Management is the biggest issue. They are not very good at following what is set for them as a guide of availability. All in all I stayed there for a while mostly cause the discount is good !
I enjoyed working at JCPenneys it consisted of mainly returning go backs, ringing up customers, and providing customer service to all the guest. Shortly after I was asked to be a store lead that position was very busy but in a good way
Business casual, No Jeans, Groomed. When you first begin there is an atmosphere of team work. I've worked at a couple of department stores now and well JC Penneys exceeds them all as far as customer service and recognizing their associates

Typical day at work you clock in, usually on your time kiosk you have what department you would be working at and what you would be doing. If you are recovery team you would be organizing your department and making sure merchandise is in the correct place if not you would take it to its correct location. If you are in dressing room you would be taking clothes out the dressing room and organizing to take to correct department dressing rooms. If you are in cashier you would check out customers merchandise, as well as recovering around the cashier if days become slow. Great managers, and enjoyable part of the job is seeing the different characters entering and exiting the store.
boost your customer service skills
not intentded for some one who wants a different routine daily.
At the current state, management talents has changed from top tier to close to bottom tier. Many initiatives lack components to make execution possible at the higher level. Training program is almost non-existent. Operational processes are astoundingly unacceptable. The recent years, the company has lost its identity which they are still in search. Copy-cat practices are quite apparent and there are no innovationsl
Company is willing to do anything to gain grounds.
Culture within the company used to be professional but family-like. It is no more.
I really loved working in retail. It was really fun and I learned how to deal with many different kinds of customers. Associate tend to deal with tough customers during the seasonal but I was always happy to help and I always had a smile on my face.
Nice managers, managers and associates teach you instead of judging you, Great work environment
Enjoyed my time at JC Penney, That was a very long time ago. it was my second job and I loved it. I worked 6:00pm to closing. and week ends. i ran the office. balancing tilts at the end of the night for deposits the next day.
