Overall, I love the people and location I work at. I believe no job you are going to love everything about, not even your dream job. I’ve worked for the company since I was 16 years old, now I’m 21 so about 5 years and when I’m not in school I continue to go back on breaks. Great first job and part-time. Honestly nothing really bad to say about the company, although I do wish the company had scholarships for fellow college students. Would be an awesome plus!

My experience both as a customer and as a Stylist in the salon, have honestly always been a great experience, especially the Odessa J.C. Penney Salon inside the Music City Mall. Great staff, very welcoming, they make you feel like family immediately.

Customer service is great too!

I do wish that they would however maintain a cleaner and working employee bathroom.
I've worked for J. C. Penney for 9 months now and I absolutely love it! the managers are very kind and flexible with your schedule if you are in school or have other obligations. They are very accommodating company for their employees. During the holidays they give the employees an extra percent off to buy things and they also have a party for everyone with food and drinks. overall I love working here, its the best company I've worked for thus far and plan on staying as long as I can. i'm very comfortable here and like doing my job and coming into work. Everyone is very supportive and treats you with respect. I've become really close with everyone its almost like they're family.
