Macy's is starting the year with store closings and they are far from the only retailer downsizing in both stores and people. That makes me nervous, to say the least. What about us? Will the company be shuttering any locations or making cuts in... — read more
Share any updates you may have about JC Penney layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Heard some changes might me coming after the new year. Couple store closings and reduction in head counts
How is job security at JCP these days? I work at Macy's and I'm desperately looking for a way out. JCP in my area is hiring but I don't want to end up in a situation where I'd leave one position just to be let go within a few months or a year from my... — read more
Why is the JCPenney at QuakerBridge Mall so dark? Nearly all the lights at that store are turned off. Are the trying to lower the electric bill? I doubt they are closing because its QuakerBridge is a Simon Mall and JCPenney is very much needed at... — read more
JCPenney at Monmouth Mall in Eatontown NJ expected to... — read more
At town council meeting in Eatontown, NJ they confirmed that the location would close by October.
Where exactly will that money come from? They'll have to make up for it somehow. Guess who'll be first on the list of casualties?
From the looks of it, this is not the case for all locations but it is for mine. Since the change in ownership we've also had a change in management at our store and for once we've got people who care about what's going on and who want to help... — read more
I work at this store in south Houston and co workers feel some type of way about wearing masks, seems like that upset caused they had covid and made thru it and now has the idgaf attitude bout everybody else, mgmt wants bodies here no matter so they... — read more
I was frustrated when I learned that not one, but several colleagues came to work even though they were positive for COVID. This is NOT OK, not only is it disrespectful to other people but dangerous too!!!!!!!!! Perhaps they're afraid they'll be... — read more
If your store mgmt is pestering yall to go to work if your sick and possibly have covid report them to your health dept, crazy retail dont have a plan in place for this, and now the status is sever in our county.
How does covid pay work, does it really take up to 6 to 8 weeks, please educate me on this asap, how does covid pay work
Can you believe it? Next month will mark the 10th anniversary of the beginning of JCP’s Decade of Ruin. It all began in earnest in February 2012…with the elimination of coupons and significant cuts to staffing in most stores. Be sure to send your... — read more
Does anyone know if they will start mandating the vaccine? Just saw on the benefits page a message about entering your vaccination status
Just wondering if anyone knows when the referral bonus will get paid.
these sad store managers want people to come to in even if u have covid or mild symptoms with a headache, attempting to keep their stores up. It's a pandemic yalllllll.
Please JCPENNY stop making these store managers make us come to work with covid 19, example league city, people working with covid asked to come to work makes no sense to us working 😕 here.
JCPenney’s at San Jacinto Mall in Baytown has closed its doors for good. This was not unexpected. Just another in a long line of closings and it's certainly not going to be the last. I hate seeing how low JCPenny has fallen. We were once a respected... — read more
Looking for a new job discouraged me because I still can't find anything that would suit me better. I'm not jealous and I don't envy others but it depresses me because it seems to me that everyone else was able to find something better while I am... — read more
Does anyone have any info of what the new 401k safe harbor plan is, and if it's any good?
I saw somewhere that JCP will pay associates an $2 an hour for working weekends during the holidays. Do they really think that this is the same as a permanent pay increase? JCP is hopelessly screwed up.
Post any information about potential or actual JC Penney layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I'm not sure if this will mean much in the grand scheme of things, but we've been seeing increased foot traffic and, shockingly enough, increased sales to correspond to it. I know it will go down once again in January, but I'm hoping that it might... — read more
I'm curious if there have been some positive changes since Simon took over.
For over five years no raise, store managers allowing people to take pto and show up to work double dipping in pay, all about what you know and who you know and how can i work the system, if you want a store ran correctly hire the right person
We swear if people keep calling out at this location by baybrook mall we quitting, stressed out, manager is lazy. Make me the store manager and changes will come, where is the accountability at
If JCP truly wanted to show more focus on the customer don’t you think we’d have the payroll hours to show for it? The level of customer service has declined drastically and our customers are looking at other avenues to shop. In my opinion there is... — read more
This may seem a little petty, but our manager despises when we are enjoying our work. It's like everybody has to hate their lives and working here to make her happy. Of course she usually shows up in a bad mood and we purposefully get under her skin... — read more
When I talk to colleagues from my store, most don't care if the store closes. Of course, there is fear because our existence still depends on it, but I want to say that the motivation is low that people care less and less if the store closes... — read more
Any predictions on which JCPenney stores could close in the future?
We had legitimate reviews that provided us with adequate raises? Our schedules were realistic and we had appropriate time off. We weren’t overworked due to a shortage of staffing. Retail today has changed so quickly. It seems the new norm is to hire... — read more
We don't have an AP security person in the store most days. Is this happening everywhere or just my store?
