People work together well here. Easy to get to know your coworkers. You get lots of training here and it’s free training. Great place to start coming out of cosmetology school. As a matter of fact it’s best to start with JCPenney because it’s easy to build clientele super fast!
Pros
Flexible schedules
Cons
No booth rent

I love JCPenney. They are a great company. I also love my new manager. They need more salon advertising and more chances to build salon clientele without demotion. I have to maintain $30/hr. A lot of my clientele dropped with COVID 19. I would like to build more clientele but feel anxious, can’t wait for a client to call for an appointment or it ruins my productivity. So, I alway feel I should leave when I finish those scheduled.

It wasn't a very pleasant experience for me. From the start, it wasn't good. "My" supervisor lied and lied often. I feel that the others prejudged me until they really got to know me...that happens often.
Pros
Free lunches, t shirts, great training
Cons
I don't want to say, Smh

I really enjoyed working at this salon. I made life-long friends in the process. However, the salon was not busy enough to allow me and many others to make a decent wage.

they care little about their employees especially when it comes to PTO. The GM is rude and always calls people by the wrong name, they refuse to help one another especially in times of need.

Loved work with staff, and meeting new people. Management wasn't professional at time and it cause a lot of hostility in the work place. I didn't like walking around the store trying to get people to come get there hair done when your books were empty.

JCPenney is a huge company but each store is like a family. Everyone cares about each other. There’s lots to learn about every little thing in each store.
