Company wide it's a frustrating place. IE simply to try and promptly communicate. No support for the appliance supervisors. They have this wonderful thing to go and create a 2 way communication except 99.9% of the time the answer people don't have a clue. Part of running the dept is you will have to ring out customers from other dept's (kids) while you are trying to wait on your own customers all the while you and the people you supervise have metrics to hit. Or you will have your registers taken over from people coming over because in their dept the registers are broke again. The appliance dept's have had brand new printers the company cannot get to print 7 months after grand opening. Need to print appliance specs for a customer, here is an embarrassing nope...
The list goes on. From being REQUIRED to steal the competitions employees so you can staff your dept. to free "setup" and delivery very poor signage verbiage, lying installers, to senior JCP back people (the few to afraid to leave) will tell you it's just a never ending cartoon and a total unnecessary one for YEARS... Store mgmt likes to whisper a lot... The morning rally meetings are especially inspiring, how many credit (ICAPS) are you going to get today?
Do your homework call / ask AROUND.
Associate discount. Good benefits unless you have an issue, beyond horrible bureaucracy.
Managment, severe turn over, broken equipment, no direct communication
Work schedule required a day of the weekend for all shifts. Taking time off was always a hassle. Workers hired into maintenance department always resented by senior employees or lack of knowledge led to a dangerous work environment.
There is a very friendly atmosphere throughout the store, Customers notice this and feel relaxed and thus enjoy their shopping experience instead of feeling rushed and not as willing to take their time to shop more than one department in the store,
