It's my part time job and I like it, they work very well with my other job schedule.It's my first experience in retail, but managers are really cool,they don't like to see nobody doing nothing, there is always something to do.
I have been having trouble getting the hours that I need to be able to provide for myself and my boyfriend and his daughter. On a daily basis, I am being told that my performance is not good enough and I was then told that this was why my hours had been cut because of my lack of performance when I do a lot more than I think that people realize.

A lot of my coworkers were always very tired after a shift. They expect us to do 4 things at once and sell at least 3 credit cards a day. If you didn't sell enough, they would let you go. The demographic for the store is crabby middle aged men and angry old women.
I got fired on thanksgiving day 10 hours into my shift with only 30 minutes left till my shift was over. The lady manager was yelling at us. And following us around when we were putting clothes back in their spot. Ran downstairs after talking to me and another employee and I got called downstairs only to be fired because they “didn’t think I was happy” pathetic. Made you stay past closing hours to clean the whole store in the mall which is 2 floors with only 10-15 people. Would be putting items back for almost 2 hours before anyone could go home.

I would say that working with JCPenney is easy. There is not much hard labor to the job. However the management of this company is horrible. There is an extreme lack of order and organization. The push for "Credit Apps" is insane. They focus most of their efforts towards getting people to apply for a credit card and do not recognize the efforts made by those who work hard on recovery and clearing fitting rooms. Currently they are hiring, but do not provide hours for the associates that have been working there. Several associates are leaving due to this issue.
The only problem is you have to get people to sign up for credit cards , I tried. really hard but couldn't get enough so that's why I wasn't kept after Christmas. ( But all you can do is ask, if they say no there's nothing you can do )
Charge customers for their merchandise. Greet costumers. Clean aisles. Count money at end of shift and make sure aisles and area is clean. Do specific jobs at register such returns, exchanges, charges via credit cards, debit cards, cash and checks.
Guidelines are changed so often that no one knows what they are. There are several managers on duty at all times and every time one walked by they would tell me to do something differently. No one knew what was going on.
Co-Workers were great, and everyone was treated with respect.

My typical work day was pretty busy due to the holidays, but overall everyone welcomed me and and assisted me with any questions or helped me with things I needed more assistance on. Overall, it was a nice place to work.
This is a fun place to work if you know some of the other employees. The associates are nice and the benefits are okay. The pay isn't all that much but there are ways to raise it. There are sometimes changing rules that aren't always specified when they are changing. The breaks are way too short IF you are allowed to get one.
You learn quick on your feet, you learn how people work an dhow to make them happy by providing the best service possible. Hardest part of it are the credit application quotas and how hard they push them
