Fun, enjoyable work environment sometimes...
Pros: light workload, fun co-workers
Cons: short breaks, poor heat/air circulation
I work for the JCP in Paris, TX and sadly, there is no room for advancement due to the selfishness of the store manager. I love my job, it keeps food on the table, but it seems like the manager tries to work his employee's to death, on an average work day there are maybe two associates at the front and maybe one or two LOD's(key carriers) that are willing to help with anything, the store manager has the schedule set up to where there is usually only one person at the front of the store no matter what time of day it is and usually that one employee is left with the entire store and cannot satisfy the needs of every customer, if a customer needs help, well to bad for them because the one sales associate on the floor cannot leave the front.
Although I do feel like this is a great job to start out with, but not one to end with. Usually there is not much to do during the day hours seeing as there are hardly any customers. It is a constant effort to do recovery to the managers likings, but the store manager is hardly ever out on the sales floor. I enjoy the work environment when it comes to the other employees.The other downside to working here is their hours are terrible the pay is too. I usually average atleast 20-30 hours a week and a hardly make over $300 every two weeks.
