I will simply say that this job has been incredibly hard for me, as someone who left a better-paying job to ease my state of mind, only to find that JCPenney does not value their employees the way they should. Perhaps it is just my experience but I have never worked for such a careless company, unwilling to fire employees who refuse to do their jobs or who are verbally abusive. Managers give little thought to training, pairing new associates with veterans who don't take the time to train properly or are simply resentful. Please, if you ever work here, voice your opinions and don't be afraid to be chipper even if you work early a.m shifts, because the biggest issue with my team is morale, because we do work such an early shift. We are usually clocked off by the time the store opens at 10 or 11.
