Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Grandville, MI – May 14, 2018
I loved working in home its slower paced less dealing with clothing messes. Overall though it was retail and retail is retail, management is good though, if your looking for a good part time job JCP is the way to go.
Retail and Customer Service (Former Employee) – Saint Peters, MO – May 14, 2018
I only worked there for a summer. The pay was minimum wage, but the managers and the coworkers were nice. I worked in the home department, but that also meant i had to work the customer service desk. I didn't expect that, but I learned some valuable lessons.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Statesville, NC – May 14, 2018
JC Penney was my first job growing up. This company granted me the opportunity to receive exposure in customer service. I learned all of my skills in customer service while training at JC Penney. The stores location was conveniently close to home, being that I was young and did not drive. My manager at the time was very helpful, and I still keep in contact with her today. I thank JC Penney for allowing me to see what customer service truly is and giving me the basics to the skills I have now.
Arid workspace with minimal enthusiasm, respect and acknowledgement for hard work
Sales and Operations Associate (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 14, 2018
My experience at JCPenney was a little less than undesirable. Although I had mo problems with my coworkers and the job environment wasn't too bad, I felt as if there was a lack of "color" in the workplace. This caused my interest and enthusiasm to decline, ultimately resulting in me quitting the job.
Discounts on clothing
Short breaks, lack of communication, lack of training. lack of enthusiasm
a typical day of work was fun, and competitive, i learned to work under pressure and in collaboration with others to give good customer service. the most enjoyable part of the typical day of work it was when we opened approved credit accounts ans congratulated you for that, and more that satisfaction of the customer's gratitude fot good service.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – May 14, 2018
JCpenny was a very strict place to work, lots of standing around. Nothing good came out of working here. The managers were mean and very disorganized. I worked in the shoe department, that place was always a mess and unkept no matter how much we organized it. Not a lot of great benefits. If the company doesn't like you work ethic or just plain doesn't like you; then they will start cutting your hours. then eventually they will fire you without telling you.
JCPenney Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Waterville, ME – May 14, 2018
During my time at JCPenney, I made a lot of great friends and built a lot of great relationships with my customers. The work was easy and kept you busy, but it was time for me to move on with my career.
Fitting Room Associate (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – May 13, 2018
This was the worst job I ever had. You are expected to do 3 things at once and when you don't get your main job done they aren't happy. I believe they wanted me to quit from day one. A lot of the time I was the only one working fitting rooms and had to consently had to stop what I was doing to go help ring customers and would get stuck up there for at least an hour and couldn't get all the clothes from the fitting rooms put back. I had never received a name tag when I was working here, and my hours were always getting cut. Finally I changed my availability for a baby sitting job I was getting and that was the end of me working here. I just wouldn't do it. Management sucks here too.
Always getting called from breaks to go help ring people up, hours getting cut, only one working a lot
