J. C. Penney Reviews

No value shown for longtime employees. No matter how hard you work only thing noticed is credit card sales
I had an amazing experience working for the salon inside Jcpenney. I was a receptionist for almost 2 years, and left due to me moving. I loved the relationships I created here, the skills I learned, the confidence I gained, and the support from the stylists was more than I ever imagined. However management has always been an issue. The manager who hired me didn't do a proper interview or training, and didn't do a majority of his job which left us feeling stranded and confused. After he left we had no manager for about 5 months which was affected even moreso by the pandemic and not knowing proper covid policies. We got a new manager, but she also is unfit and has a bad attitude in the workplace including favoritism and speaking inappropriately. I stayed because I loved my coworkers, but if it weren't for them I would've left long before I did. Easy job usually with some exceptions, low pay and no set schedule.
Corporate does not have your best interest in mind. You are simply a cog in a wheel. Management tries really hard to boost morale, which is nice but rarely works.
Working at J.C.Penney I had a multitude of great co-workers whom I made close connections with like family. the discount is incredible and the environment is inclusive. However customer service is difficult with the always changing sales and coupon discounts. With a large corporation like J.C.Penney you eventually feel lost in the numbers and they only care if you make credit card applications.
As a sales associate in the home department we had to handle all types of situations and problems in which i was able to gain a lot of transferable skills I needed for my future career.
I love my managers and the coworkers are just as lovely, the only thing I would change is offering a slightly longer break and lowering the temperature in the store.
I started here as a contract employee a few months before the shutdown started because of the Corona Virus. I enjoyed working here and I wished that I could have stayed on as a permanent employee. I really hope the company survives this bankruptcy and changes its business practices around.
JCP is a company that is on a downwards trend. They are trying to claw their way back into the mainstay of modern clothing and accessories, but they are having a hard time doing so with the modern problems of people shopping online, as well as the complications with business due to COVID-19. JCP is a fine store, just do not get your hopes up for anything spectacular.
Everyone is very communicative, and even as a seasonal worker, I enjoyed my time there. It got very busy but the management at the store was very organized and on top of everything.
J.C. Penney is a friendly work environment. This is perfect for first time workers, such as teenagers in high school.
I have worked for JCPenney for four years. Overall my time here has been okay. There has been an overall issues with the store managers. In my store we have had four different general managers and each one has been very different. For the most part it seems like the right had doesn’t speak to the left. I hope for the benefit for this company that JCPenney will appreciate it’s employees.
I work in the hair salon at J.C. Penney. I think the hairstylist are underpaid. We are expected to bring in $500 or more a week or more, but make less than that in two weeks' pay. We are also expected to sell products and work at the front desk and sometimes expected to help the floor workers. It wouldn't be so much of a burden if there were small rewards, but that isn't given either. No recognition. The good parts of the job are the connections we get to make with our customers and co-workers. Their smiles and application are so warming.
The management is very great and are very helpful working with my high school schedule. The employees are all very nice and easy to work with.
November and December are hectic months and crazy packed for JCPenney. Other months are slower. This company heavily relies on employees getting customers to apply for JCPenney cards. If you're not able to get any, then this job is not for you. There's a great discount for employees and affordable products.
I have worked at JCPenney for 5 years, I was 16 years old when I first started the job. Overall my experience has been positive, management is approachable and staff is friendly. Management has built a warm, friendly, and professional environment. I still currently work there, but while in college I take student leave which is extremely convenient. This job has taught me a great amount of skills, a few examples are team work and customer service.
Fantastic coworkers and management. Everyone is eager to help you succeed! One of the best places I have ever worked.
JCPenney is a great place to work. Everyone is friendly and we all work together to make the best workplace possible.
