Busy days involved always being productive and always moving around. Interesting new work experience. Managers there were nice, but they weren't always around when you needed them only because the workplace was huge.

The work is good but you don't get enough hours to do anything. Also if you don't speak Spanish you don't fit in. Very back stabbing work environment and if your not a favorite you don't get anything you need.

Very competitive environment. Managers and supervisors always try to find shortcuts or a scapegoat for mistakes. If you're a good worker stay away, you will be the carrier of all the slack and get a 10 cent raise...

It is a great place to work I enjoyed working there I would definitely go back. They gave me extensive training and got me into jewelry and had me certified and trained when I never worked in that line of work before. I highly recommend jcpenney they strongly follow their company's goals

The management was amazing for the first 8 months of me working there. We got new management and stuff started heading south. New manager pretty much kicked all of the old asst. managers out and in with the new and everything felt like a different company.

The work reflected its pay well, the only thing I could complain about is the the early morning hours. 4:30 am is not a time to be at work. Other than that my manger was nice.
Pros
break room massage chair
Cons
early morning hours

I enjoyed the atmosphere of having fellow peers as my co-workers at the time. Sadly it was only a seasonal job. I would recommend working there. They provided benefits.

not the best place to work if you want a stress free environment, but colleges are nice and welcoming. there are few opportunities for advancement. sephora rewards their associates for working there by giving them free products

It takes dedication and hard work to maintain a job at JCPenney. If you do not enjoy working with others and with the public this will most likely not be the best fit for you.
