The hours at JCPenney fluctuated too much and went from 40 hours during the holidays and went down to 7 hours when the sales were down, It was hard to support myself with this amount of income fluctuation and not enough pay. The management expected an open availability, so it is hard to work 2 jobs with their criterion. I have worked in retail for 10 years, and gained some management experience while working for the company, but the skills I learned at this company were the same retail skills I have learned from all my retail experience. I liked working with the merchandise, but mainly I would be stuck at a register all day long.
learn skills of retail, supported me through college
hour fluctuations, pay freeze
