I work in JCPenny salon for three years. It was my first salon job so i was fresh out of school so i was nervous. i worked on weekends and was very busy the only style i didn't really do was weaving. I worked my way up to a senior stylist and was very proud of my self because i came a long way.

a typical day at work was wonderful everyone was so welcoming and warm, our team was like a family, everyone helped everyone so no one failed. I learned new things everyday weather it was through a class or my fellow co-workers. Management was awesome she was always there to help or to walk you through things and to show new techniques. The salon was always clean and sanatized, we all cleaned up after ourselves and others, the clients were very nice and were also like family. The hardest part of the job was the counsltation getting to know your client and their needs. the most enjoyable part of the job was to feel that feeling that your client was happy and excited.
Discounted items, lunch breaks, classes to further our education
When I started I was working 35 hours, and I had vision and dental insurance available. I was promised PTO and paid holidays. My hours were cut down to 24 hours a week which made me unavailable to benefits. I also never received my PTO or paid vacation even though I reached the requirements (which was 30 hours for PTO) Walk in traffic isn’t the best.

I have been with the company for 5 years. I work with a great group of girls. the rest of the store is tolerable. the management is terrible. the best part of the store is the salon and they get no love!

This salon is a good starter salon for a new stylist trying to build their clientele. JCP is a company that is closing stores however and the salon doesn't seem to be as high of importance as the retail side.
managment was not properly handled, pay was low, workers were rude, all they cared about was money and did not care about the costumers, it was hard working with people that did not care about there costumers.
