Long days feet will hurt a lot and they aren’t flexible only care about JCP credit cards. Good for extra money. Forced to work all holidays and won’t let you have a day off

It was a fun work environment meeting new people and even setting a client base was awesome. Some of the people I recognized on a weekly basis and they were good. The co-workers were very helpful at getting adjusted.
Pros
Sometimes Free lunches.

Worked in recovery. Fixing messed shelves and returning clothes to racks. Dept manager was truly stuck on themselves for one thing. Didn't help with floor questions. Finished my section to find coworkers went behind me and messed it up again so I I looked bad. Grow up people, this isn't high school! Quit next day.

Fun place to work but its not an easy job. You get to work as a team and interact with your co workers. However, you have a lot of responsibilities and it can be overwhelming. Cashiering, recovery, fittings rooms, credit card applications are the minimum responsibilities. We aren't paid enough and the raises if given are poor.
Pros
Fun work environment
Cons
Pay isn't good

The company has had many challenges with support and teamwork. Management believed in stating the opportunities but never congratulating you on successes. It was very defeating towards the end of my work relationship. The company is in distress and blamed the associates.

Retail work is difficult, but many JC Penney stores have great associates and managers that want you to succeed. Many stores are closing in this economy unfortunately.

Working for Jcpenny's was terrible. My father got sick and had to have heart surgery. My salon manager acted like she did not care. They put in a transfer to another store without me knowing until that store manager was calling me. It was just super shady.

Managers hassle associates to meet daily and weekly credit application goals. Constant screaming over the radio about asking the customers to apply for the credit card.

Overall, I had a great time working at JCPenney while I was there. They was open with all the employees, flexible work schedule, and exciting supervisors that would host fun seasonal events for the customers.
Pros
Was in the mall so it was very steady paced from the activity
Cons
Recovering after the store close, long

Retail is harder than most think. JCPenney is an okay company to work for. But I wouldn't want to make this my life calling. I'd work as extra help around the holidays though.
Pros
It's air conditioned
Cons
Dealing with the mess at the end of the shift.

I'd never worked a "Box" store before, and enjoyed the experience. Management was friendly and consistent with training. Work environment was overall enjoyable.

wait on customers that come to my department and help them when asked. The hardest part is dealing with customers that are rude but have to remember that the customer is always right

It was honestly a great experience. It works with your hours, they are very helpful, allows you to work in a variety of areas and it gives you a discount when working there.
