For those who are complaining, the ultimate goal in retail is to SALE product and accomplish daily sale goals. THAT'S EVERY RETAIL COMPANY!! If you're not a enthusiastic and self motivated person, retail isn't for you. There are so many people who are less privileged and the ones who are complain.

They don’t schedule you if you don’t get any icaps so it’s stupidly the dumbest thing to not schedule you for not getting enough icaps.

Well..... One thing is well they werent being completely honust with me and well fired me over a silly thing. All because i switched my schedule around. Jcpennys wasnt for me anyways. I had to return my badge and well at least i got my paycheck. To those getting a job at jcpenny's be warned since they are not what they seem. I tried showing up to work on friday of least week and they told me i wasnt scheduled. I was freaking mad. One thing though i did learn alot there. They fired me for a stupid thing for what showing up early? WTH i dont know about you guys but that should not be a problem at all.

Everything being said here about JCP is 100% correct. I'm currently 3 months old and I'm already giving my 2 weeks notice. They started harassing me to get credit apps that's all they care about. I get 10/10 surveys every week but they don't give a cr**. The managers are hella annoying they act like because they are an LOD they get to treat you like some type of slave. They whine and act all angry when you haven't finished a busy pile of clothes in the fitting room especially when u are alone. Its just ugh and all this for what just like 9$ an hour? Not to mention we get robbed like 10x a day and the security guy all he does is eat smh. I'm starting to get a headache and not to mention I still have classes to attend. I'll miss my coworkers but that's about it. I can see why my mom never liked JCP and she never was happy about me working here. Seriously if JCP don't get their act straight the store is gonna go down in a couple years.

Management was horrible and disrespectful. They also did not care about you and made you work many hours with low pay. I worked in customer service where you deal with every single problem you can think of online and in store and management kept harping me to get credit apps. Seriously?? You put credit apps over giving good customer service? Management also expected me to perform their job without the pay or the title. I was there for 2 and a half years and never got a raise, despite all the work I did for the darn company. The management there kept getting worse and worse as the years progressed and I thought it was about time I checked out. They really don't value their associates!
