Everyone I work with is extremely nice. Always in a good mood. Everyone is always happy.
I love working at jcpennys. It is a non stressful job. My associates and managers are extremely nice to work with. Management always let you know when you are doing a great job. The only thing I don’t like is we always have to push credit application to are customers. That can be annoying to customers . Thcustomers get sometimes.

Worst place ever
Manager was so terrible. She definitely had her favorites. Very hard to work with, she constantly talked down on her employees. I stuck it out as long as I could.

productive and fun work place
A typical day at work would obviously be dealing with customers. It can be stressful but also fun. The most enjoyable part about working customer service would have to be interacting with customers and learning something new every day.

Fun place to work
Enjoyed working at the Salon. Having every hair product available to you without cost is Great!! The Salon handles all of the promoting which really helps. There are always clients coming in. The only draw back I had was that the store manager was running the salon and had no knowledge of how a salon works. Other than that the experience was great!!
Pros
Great Place to work, lots of clients, lots of advertising
Cons
managers inexperience in Salon business

Very friendly staff and well organized
Having a typical day at work requires me to be aware of my jobs duties. I would make sure my area is well organized and my racks we well set up.

Great company with great potential
This is a great job to gain experience, but do not be fooled. You may never get a promotion by just simply going above and beyond what is required. There are people who have been working for this company for 20+ years and are still getting paid hourly. However, that may be their choice, but is does not compensate well for those looking to pursue a career in retail. Great beginning experience for those needing a part-time job. Fun work environment and great learning experience.

Ok, too much drama
It was a good environment although, didn't like the co-workers there. They slacked off to much causing me to pick up their work. Either than that I would recommend working at a JC Penney where people work together.
Pros
ok pay, you get to window shop while working
Cons
too much drama. I felt like the only worker.

it's a good play to work for but the hours are not there.
Penney's is a great place to work. For all the discount price and the sales. overall some of the people there arent so friendly. But in returned the hours aren't so good too. But then it helps out to sometimes because i family times.
