I enjoyed JCPenney when I started, I was told I would be able to become full time and everyone was very nice. After enough time I realized that I won't become full time and I was not valued by the staff and was just constantly expected to pick up everyone else's slack. The Johnson City store manager is very selfish and cares EXCLUSIVELY about making sales and credit goals and does not care about associates or using people to their best ability instead of bringing them down.
Plenty of free lunches, associate discount, discount in salon and sephora
check out people, clean section and any other assigned tasks. I learned how to open/close cash register. They did a through job of training and walking you through the steps before putting you by yourself.
I worked during the Holidays for 4 years part time and then in 2018 I was told I did not fit what they were looking for. I am 74 years old and look and act like in my late 50 or early 60's. I believe I was discriminated against due to age. I never received any negative feed-back for my performance and was always helpful and courteous to customers.
