JCPenney is a great place to work as a part-time employee, but there is no room for full-time employees or advancement. I enjoyed interacting with the customers and helping them with their needs and wants.
Great employee discount
Never knowing what your schedule is going to be from week to week
While working was an active experience, management pushes opening credit accounts to customers. While most of the customers I dealt with already had credit accounts, employees were still pressured to open as many accounts as possible. Only employees that opened many accounts continued on into longer positions.
This was a good first job, but I would never want to work there again. Too much drama, management didn't care when a 17 year old was doing drugs on the job. Told us to mind our own business and that was when I quit.
they always provided lunch, especially around the holidays. I LOVED that.The people i worked with were awesome too, some of them are friends for life . i enjoyed everyday i worked there, even the most difficult days, i enjoyed them too.
I was trained in customer service and retail skills by this job. I was seasonally employed for the holidays, and was put into black friday only a couple of days after my basic training. I then worked eight hours a day for the holiday season while simultaneously working as a custodian at night. This taught me everything I needed to know about customer service and was an excellent immersion into the world of sales, retail, and customer relations as a professional.
This was the most enjoyable job I ever had. I took a job I could make more money at, but didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much and always regretted it. It's amazing how a big store can still feel like a family. Met some of my best lifelong friends at JCPenney. Great training programs and great people to work for.
Everything was always nice and things were always where they were supposed to go. All the people were nice and professional. they taught me how to give great customer service and how to correctly work the store.
Even if it was a slow day, there was always something you could be doing. My co-workers were all wonderful and our managers kept us excited about making sure we were working hard and efficiently! The hardest part of the job was working with tough customers, but the best part of the job was when you could make them happy before they left!
I worked in the children's department and I loved being able to interact with the customers, was given proper breaks and lunches. Being in the children's department it was a little slow, I would have preferred somewhere with a faster pace, but overall I enjoyed working here.
