Merchandise Associate (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – November 27, 2017
The hardest part of my job was having to interact with many different personalities from both customers and coworkers. This made it difficult to communicate at times. Another hard part of the job is the pressure the companies to meet corporate standards and goals while having a scarce amount of associates in the store.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Redding, CA – February 23, 2018
It was a friendly place to work, not always organized, people were nice to work with. Not a hard job. Busy work always something do, if there were no customers, there were go backs, things customers did not want or returned that needed to be put back. Keeping the work areas clean.
Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 22, 2018
This job is bad. They stay on your throat about selling their credit card. To the point that workers had to trick people into signing up. They do not care about how good you are at doing your task and getting them done on time. ALL they care for is the credit card sign up. The only way to get hours is to have people to sign up and if you do not trick people then you will never get hours.
Fun place to work where I could work with children and be creative
Photographer (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – February 22, 2018
I was really disappointed in the 10 min window for taking children's photos. That' s not enough time to photograph a 2 year old and I feel like your cheating the parents out of what could be awesome pictures once the child warns up to you which usually takes longer than 10 minutes.
Love kids, absolutely passionate about photography
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bay Shore, NY – February 22, 2018
for the most part, working at JCpenney was pretty fun because it is a very friendly store for one, i was pretty much friends with everyone there. the only thing i did not like there is that some of the managers do not really acknowledge how much work we do for the company and take us for granted
Human Resource Supervisor (Former Employee) – Williston, ND – February 22, 2018
You work hard and get rewarded, lots of associate training, great benefits, great customer service, variety of bands with reasonable prices, opportunities for growth both professional and personal, and opportunity to relocate.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – West Mifflin, PA – February 22, 2018
Great place/environment to work, I love meeting new people everyday and in a Salon environment, I was able to do that. Because of new Management for the entire Company 1,000 people throughout the country lost their jobs in JCP Salons because they were trying to go on a different path that ended up failing for them. For example, taking away commissions and eventually taking away jobs.
Something new everyday
Bringing in new Management that failed the Company and ultimately my job
CUSTOMER SERVICE REP (Former Employee) – 5000 Frederica St, Owensboro, KY 42301 – February 22, 2018
Everyone there was very nice and helpful. It was fast paced and you had to sell credit cards anytime someone came to checkout. The part I enjoyed most about the job is the people and customers I worked with.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Rockland, ME – February 22, 2018
at first working there was fun and I enjoyed it.After being there for a few months I noticed a recurring problem of certain employees slacking off and managers doing nothing got frustrating very quickly.
