Very needy customers can't seem to ever look for anything on their own. No health insurance until full time for a year. I've never heard of any company making you wait that long!

This is a great job for someone who loves to relax at work. The days consist of simply making the store floor look presentable or assisting customers at the cash register

Working at JCP can be a really great experience, it's all in what you make it. If you like retail you'll be satisfied

I loved working here. It was just a little drive at the time and I was in high school and my parents didn't like me driving far, but other then that the customers were great and so were the employees.

Jcpenney overall is a pretty good company. My management in my stores had issues, but just because my Jcpenney store wasn't ideal doesn't mean they are all that way. If you want a flexible job with school. Its a good job with a good discount. As every job goes, it all depends on the management.
Pros
discount/Co-workers
Cons
retail

A typical day at work involves receiving multiple projects from several different managers and managing my time to ensure that each one is completed efficiently and in a timely manner. I learned to be a better team leader and to have work done by the given deadline. Management had its ups and downs, but I just learned to work with it and not make it a big deal. The hardest part of my job would be with quite a few of my coworkers who's work ethics were just that they really didn't care. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to create sets on the floor and be as creative as I am there as I am when writing a book.

This is a good place to work for someone new to the workforce. In fairness I joined JC Penney at the onset of the Ron Johnson debacle and have had to endure a time of tremendously painful change for JCP. JC Penney unfortunately has a stifling culture and an almost blinding focus on operational rather than organizational leadership which could explain why tenured supervisors are generally unhappy.

I loved my job until the new CEO came in, that's when everything changed and the customers were not happy. They took our sales commission away, which was like having another pay check and did not compensate for it.
I loved working with my co-workers and customers. I enjoyed my work there in fine jewelry because one of my hobbies is "Gemstone Collecting" and I am very familiar with all the gemstones and the quality of diamonds.
Pros
store discount percentage
Cons
short staffing. unable to take lunch breaks or any other breaks too much of the time.

Walk the Dept, identify what areas can be improved, to be more inviting to the customer. Make sure that all fixtures are full of product, and that all of the fixtures are shopable, and not messy. Make sure that there are nice clean aisles for the customers to manuver through for easy shopping.
Being a Supervisor is both challenging and rewarding. It is rewarding to watch associates develop, as you coach them along in order to become better at their job. One of the harder things is making sure that all the product is eye catching, and makes the customer want to shop. Co-workers are great to work with.
Pros
we have a great supervisor team.
Cons
schedule is not family friendly
