JC Penney / employment
I started my job at JC Penney exactly one week before Thanksgiving. Let me start out with this. They were VERY last minute in hiring me. I had put in my application in September. When I was interviewed, it was a group interview, and there was no second interview. I was hired the same day. I was given no formal training. Everything I learned I pretty much learned on my own, though my coworkers did help me out. When they decided to put me on computer courses, I learned nothing new. Third day in on the job, I happened to offend the scheduling manager over something VERY trivial (and I mean VERY trivial. Like, when I told people about it, they raised an eyebrow and shook their head). I do not lie about these things, lying profits no one, and there was someone else right beside me when the situation happened and even they felt bad for me. After that, she was always very short with me. I even apologized to her the next time I saw her. She told me she wasn't upset, but something tells me otherwise. I worked a total of 8 days there before they stopped scheduling me. This was my first job. I had no idea what to expect at all. My coworkers were fairly understanding, I was even becoming friends with one of them, and even my other managers didn't even seem to mind me.
While I can't say I was a great employee, I was clumsy at the cash register (once again, only worked there a total of 8 days, my last day was December 6th). In spite of that, I can say I tried my hardest to work beyond my circumstances. I tried my hardest. Whatever I did never seemed to be enough. The atmosphere in the store became suffocatingly materialistic, empty, and extremely unfulfillable to me. I started coming home extremely depressed, and I already struggle with depression without this. When the scheduling manager didn't schedule me in for the next two weeks, I decided to let it go. I knew that that person had decided to fire me without actually firing me. They didn't have the decency or the professionalism to actually let me go and tell me whether it was personal or work-related. I found out today that I was the only person they stopped scheduling in after Black Friday. They didn't do it with any other temps. In fact they're going to hire on one of the temps. One thing is for sure, I will never shop at a JC Penney, ever again, nor will I work for one again. Hopefully, it can still count as experience and I can find a job that will treat me better.
