They need to get off there high horse and actually train/help people and tell you what deals there are to everybody not just the openers. They dont plan scheduling well because there would be days where they completely under staff and they would even come down and hop on a register when needed basically the only thing they would talk to you about was selling credit cards. AND GET THIS they never even showed me how to sign someone up for it until a month later then told me that i need to sell more because i was getting points against me every time someone used a credit card. AWFUL

Awful management they think that since they are a big store that they are higher than you and dont need to teach or help on days with low staff and lots of customers, they basically just come down to judge you with a clipboard. They have no organization and the store is proof of that. On orientation they just show you videos give a short tour and then let the staff train you. Now that i work at a different store where managers are 100% better and you get 10 training days plus mangers help you if it is busy i see just how bad Jcpenneys was.

Biweekly. It was annoying especially when you didn’t work that much those two weeks so the check is even smaller after government deductions.
