The only think that bothered me was the number of items we as were suppose to try to push on the customers at checkout;magazine subscriptions, rewards, emails, and store credit cards. Your hours depend on it..otherwise your schedule will get butchered.
An employee was taking associates' commission by using only her id at checkout, so basically,we all worked, she collected. She also received awards for excellent numbers in emails, but only because she made them up, and we actually had proof! Numerous reports have been made by several of the coworkers of her doing this...nothing done about it. She still works there to this day.
I love the job and the people I work with at JC Penney. They have good benefits as far as medical, dental and vision are concerned. At the store that I work at, they don't hire very many Full Time positioned which, along with low pay, makes it hard to keep good employees there.
