JCPenney aims to hire 400 workers throughout Tampa Bay

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Do you love people? What about a good discount?

If the answer to both of these questions is yes, you may be the perfect candidate for a job at JCPenney.

The retailer wants to hire 400 associates throughout the Tampa Bay area before for the back-to-school shopping rush at the end of the summer.

They are looking to fill a variety of customer service and support positions including cashiers, replenishment specialists and SEPHORA inside JCPenney beauty consultants.

“JCPenney associates enjoy competitive pay, an associate discount up to 25%, flexible scheduling and opportunities for advancement,” the company said in a statement.

The company is also looking for highly experienced stylists to join their salon program.

“A new premier commission plan enables incoming stylists with robust client books to set their own hours and pricing, while enjoying some of the highest commissions of any salon chain. Highly experienced stylists can also take advantage of flexible scheduling with no overhead costs. As always, JCPenney salon stylists enjoy perks such as paid artistic training, health benefits for full-time stylists, paid time off and 401K eligibility.”

The retailer announced in February it planned to close nearly 14 percent of its stores, including a distribution center in Lakeland, over the next several months to maximize profits in the era of online shopping, but it seems the company is reevaluating its decision after the public’s response to the move.
