Fellow sales associates were easy to get along with, but there is an obvious rift in communication between management and non-management. Communication and understanding is lacking between the two. The hardest part of working at JcPenney was keeping such a large department in order with few employees scheduled. I would also add the fact that I was scheduled to work during times when I would be in class, thus forcing me to call out and lose money. A typical shift would begin with clocking in, clearing off any returned, exchanged, or loose merchandise by returning it to its correct place while being approached by customers with questions. If there were no customers that needed to be checked out at the register, we were then to refold ant product that needed refolding and make sure they were stacked neatly.
At JC Penney’s I worked In the jewelry department where I had to be in charge over a million dollars worth of jewelry. I was responsible for the glass counters at all times. This was a job, we’re you had to be sharp.
