JC Penney - Fired at JCP!
Women's Department - Complaint
WAUSAU, WISCONSIN -- I've worked for Jcp for months, almost close to a year. Good sales specialist, got 1-2 icaps weekly, kind to customers, hard worker, (depends who I work with I usually do most of the work..registers, put clothes back, straighten, SPACING the racks!, fitting rooms, etc. while my coworkers just stood there and talk crap about every customer and the managers, ESP the coworkers). I asked off for a family emergency sat-mon because my grandpa is EXTREMELY ill. And they DECLINED it. I didn't show up to work because it was a family EMERGENCY. And they KNEW about it!! I come home from out of town and find out they fired me. And found other people to cover my shifts. Just like that. I couldn't call in because in my culture it's very disrespectful towards my family using technology like phones, cameras, iPods, laptops, etc. because it was spending as much time w/ my grandpa before he passes away. Jcp store #2062, WORST place to work. I HAVE job experience and get paid $7.25 while my friends who go to school with me, in the same grade get $7.75-8 with NO job experience and do absolutely NOTHING at work.
In my interview they told me I'd get 7.75 as well, I said something to them and they said they'd change it but I guess they never listened! The managers there ALWAYS sided with the ones who work there the longest, which is ironic, because there the ones who talk crap about them and are lazy. Me, being pregnant and a full time high school student they expect me to work everyday, 4-5.5 hours and usually 8 hours each day on the weekends. And they expect me to close by myself. Meaning straighten clothes, keep an eye on registers, put carts of clothes away with my nausea and dizziness.
Good prices on clothes but the Worst place to work ever!
