I am currently still employeed at JCPenney as a Designer Stylist. I am writing this review because I do not know what the future will hold but figured I’d share my input. I also started off as a receptionist before going to the salon floor. This company is incredibly cut - throat. People will fight to be number one, pocket tips and management especially LOVES to play favorites with employees - when you do management’s job you can do whatever you want here! Customers can be intense. Once you build a loyal clientele you will be fine. Fellow coworkers are mainly very supportive. Pay rate is awful for what you deal with on a daily basis. My advice to corporate - LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES! WITHOUT THEM YOU HAVE NOTHING! When you are not careful, management will take advantage of you. They think they can pretty much replace anyone. I warn anyone who comes here - as much as you will fall in love with your clients and coworkers, the rules here make no sense and management is all power play.
Employee discount, great co-workers
Poor management, low pay
