Great for those who need a flexible part time job
Every shift for me was a bit different. Some days I was cashiering, other days I was helping with signs and read floor plans for new stock. Management put a lot of emphasis on signing customers up for credit cards, which began to feel like it was the only thing they cared about. Employees were constantly coming and going, so the store was always understaffed. I loved being able to organize merchandise but it was often unrecognized due to the main focus being credit and not store presentation and shop-ability.

Fun atmosphere with great people, management & staff
Being part of JCPenney was more than a job; it was an experience and an education. There were multiple factors that led to this being the truth; a clean and well organized layout & stockroom, customers that enjoyed shopping at our store, the people that connected the customers with our vision, and the great management team that led us. The store manager at the time was by far my favorite employer to work for; he was serious & goal oriented, but smiled and had a good time, and this passion ran deep through every layer of hierarchy.
Pros
Flexible scheduling
Cons
None
