Loved my manager and all the other employees. Was a wonderful job. I would still be with them if we had not moved out of the area. I had an early morning schedule which I loved. Manager very positive and very helpful.
Everyone talks about others behind their back, never to their face.
New employees are not given adequate training, and sometimes NO training.
Manager and supervisors like to hold themselves separate and above the underlings in the company.
When they give employees an “appreciation” party, employees are expected to chip in to provide everything for said party.
I love my job, but I hate coming into work. Constantly feel undermined and not listened to as an employee. There’s really no training on any promotions. Sometimes I am not at 100% when I work, because of how demeaning my management makes me feel. If you have good management, the job is wonderful.
JcPenney used to be a great place to work; however in recent years the store has taken a nose dive. Management can be heard arguing from the back offices and seldom gets along. Schedule is inconsistent with management denying school availability and changing schedules without 24 hour notice. Growth is near impossible as titles are made up and stripped without warning. Many of the younger associates have tendencies to stand around on their cell phones while on the job. Registers and fitting rooms are rarely cleaned. Overall moral around the store has dropped and it is reflected in nearly every facet of the store. Feel if things do not change the store will close.
The company needs to review the type of styles in apparel,price and sales.The receiving of inventory needs to be changed to become a less labor process.
Self service in the shoe and lingerie departments must be full service not to continue the theft issue.
Management Is Awful. People In There Never Take Responsibility For Their Actions. They Always Blame Everyone But Themselves. The Assistant Manager Has A TERRIBLE Attitude & It’s Too Much Drama With Everyone In There .
Overall, It is a good company to work for. Flexible scheduling and fun associates. The management team is also great. Sometimes it gets to be a little over whelming, but you can expect that at most retail jobs.
Didn't enjoy working here. Management was not reliable nor did they work as a team or train employees properly. Made for frustrating working conditions. The job I was hired to do had so many tasks to accomplish that made it impossible to get things completed in a timely manner. Not enough knowledgeable or well trained employees scheduled to help customers so that was my top priority but yet I was criticized for doing so.
Breaks, pay, HR lack of communication with management
Last position there was a nightmare i regretted moving to it after i had gone to it for a few weeks. There was NO good fit with my nor the others in my department teams.
I always felt totally uncomfortable like i didn't belong and no one wanted to have to deal or really get to know me. I felt i was not good enough or smart enough for them or not wealthy enough for their standards. Eventually after nights of mental anguish and crying ,most weekends from this job, the Lord blessed me. This boss and HR team let me go.I felt so free when I finally left there.
alot of good places to eat and shop at lunch
depressing feeling there and i still have nightmares about being there
Good as a first job but you shouldn’t stay here. The company doesn’t care for its employees. So much is expected of you for the little time that you are given and you can never go over 40 hours if you even get to that
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Been to many years ago to remember exactly my review for JcPenney's. All I can say was a good job to have to start saving money on your own and for teenagers to work for the pay and flexibility.
