I learned so much about business and people while working at JCPenney. JCPenney encourages associate development and invests in it's employees. Every day my focus was on associate and customer engagement. There were daily business tasks that must be completed, but I was also challenged daily on employee engagement. Retail hours are always challenging, yet JCPenney wants it's employees to have a great work/life balance. My co-workers were great! They were a 2nd family which helps to make it a great place to work.
In my job as a jcpenney sales associate, my position was to work in back stock, opening and organizing boxes and placing them in their proper location in the store. In the store, I would view the floor and fold clothes, pick up and organize jewelry,put away clothing from the dressing rooms and clean what needed to be cleaned so the store looks in top condition. I also greeted and assisted customers with their needs and requests.
