Depending on the department you work in the day can be busy without having an adequate amount of cashiers and dressing room attendants. My Coworkers were nice as well as hardworking. When you work here you get into a system of how to handle customers as well as the other aspects of the job. Knowing where clothes go might take a long time to master but once you understand your specific stores you will have no problems. The systems are slow and tend to crash a lot so be prepared for that.
This was a ok job. I didn't like the fact that the require the salon manager to be a licensed cosmetologist but they do not allow the manager to do hair at all. This severely reduces the managers income to a low amount.
I would come in around 9:45 am. Next, check my schedule of clients for the day.Then set up my salon appliances and products in which I will use for the day, and greet my fellow co workers.Once my client arrives I will engage in meaningful conversation to make them feel more comfortable and learn about their desired service and proceed to execute it. The hardest part about my day is to make sure every customer is satisfied even when their attitude isn't welcoming. The most enjoyable part about my job is turning their frown upside down and having them leave feeling more confident about themselves with their new hairstyle.
I liked the work environment at the company but they made changes too often but I understand it was because they were trying to find what worked best. I also feel the company does not care about their employees, they just care about the numbers and set unrealistic goals.
It was an interesting place to work, long hours, under staff, unorganized. wrong scheduling. Computers kept freezing, over booked. Put cameras always worked, back drops were beautiful, props were always clean and safe.
I loved the people that I worked with as a team. Some people were there to work and others were there to collect a paycheck and nothing more. I was part of a recovery team and just helped keep the store looking nice and organized. Hardest part was having to stay after hours during the holidays and back to school days. Enjoyable part was the people I worked with in my team.
During my nine years out of seventeen at JC Penney, overall I had a good experience. My typical day included lots of phone calls, orders large and small to enter into the system. I learned it takes a team to make everyone successful. No one person can do it alone. My co-workers were a mixed group of women and men who challenged me but I challenged them as well. The hardest part of the job was trying to reason with a customer who was upset if their order was wrong when it was installed. Sometimes you have to bite your tongue to keep your composure so the customer's comments don't get to you. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a customer calls you or emails you to tell you how much they love their new treatments. The joy in their voice is enough to make you smile.
Everyone is accepted for who or what they are.
Medical insurance should be provided whether you're part or full time.
A typical day was completing cash transactions while also stocking shelves and greeting customers. I also transported purchases to customers cars. I learned how to pleasantly interact with customers and also learned how to handle money. My co-workers were very nice and pleasant.
A typical day at work would start by communicating with customers, and checking them out. Beginning to return items to shelf, the entire shift/ Work experience is great, the only cons are flexibility and "Credit-Apps" A company credit-card application. Which if you don't meet the "requirement" you face dismissal. Other then that the work environment is great!
