JCPenney has always been a place that I love shopping at. But when it comes to actually working there, it is terrible. The amount of "Black Out" days (days that you cannot take off) is absolutely insane, and does not offer a fair balance between life and work. Also, on the schedule, you might as well disregard your end time. You are not allowed to leave until your supervisor says so (even if your posted time has come)!
I was a high school student that wouldn't get home until 1 or 2 in the morning, and that absolutely killed me.
I love the store, but the management could use work and I would not recommend working there if you are looking for a long-term job.
