I haven't been inside a JCP since I worked there a decade ago. Do they still judge your performance on how many credit card apps are filled out? Do the men still wear a button down and tie?

Yes yes, the credit applications are still EVERYTHING. And no, we just wear polos now

Do you actually have that size in the back or not?
LiamCastellano630 karma2021-08-09 16:38:26 UTC
Nope, all our items are actually out on the floor 😂
primeirofilho314 karma2021-08-09 16:30:34 UTC
I didn't know that JCPenney was still around. How busy are the stores?
LiamCastellano184 karma2021-08-09 16:34:12 UTC
Not too busy now because of all our social distancing measures, but yeah, we have limited locations still open

JCP seems like it’s just… not doing well. What’s the attitude of you and other associates about this? Do you feel concerned for your jobs or does the company tell you everything is fine?
*former corporate retail employee for other brands who always felt under pressure because of how the company talks about sales=jobs
LiamCastellano154 karma2021-08-09 16:36:19 UTC
Our store is doing well individually of the whole corporation, so no, we're not too concerned :)
Gonzaloooo3168 karma2021-08-09 16:30:58 UTC
You think JC Penney will go under soon like Sears?
LiamCastellano32 karma2021-08-09 16:34:58 UTC
Hopefully not lol

There's gotta be something more interesting in your life you'd rather do an AMA about. What'd you eat for breakfast this morning?

What’s it like working in an industry that was already suffering pre-pandemic?
LiamCastellano170 karma2021-08-09 16:35:33 UTC
It's rough- we're ridiculously understaffed and management is always stressed out
catjugglinpimp93 karma2021-08-09 16:35:19 UTC
May we talk about RAMPART?
LiamCastellano29 karma2021-08-09 16:43:35 UTC
No clue what that is
rhackle72 karma2021-08-09 16:32:56 UTC
When's the best time of year to buy different things? I remember when I worked at Macy's, we hiked the price of jeans after Christmas.
LiamCastellano122 karma2021-08-09 16:40:09 UTC
Back to School Tax-Free weekend- all the sales of Black Friday without the traffic

How many customers should retail workers get to punch a month?
LiamCastellano164 karma2021-08-09 16:43:01 UTC
At least 28, 29 on leap years

What is your biggest behind the scenes secret you'd like to share with us?
LiamCastellano82 karma2021-08-09 16:42:10 UTC
The clearance section is messy and gross on purpose. I'll let you decide why :)
G_man25227 karma2021-08-09 16:34:42 UTC
Ever killed a man?
LiamCastellano6 karma2021-08-09 16:42:24 UTC
I wish /j
Ethandrul21 karma2021-08-09 16:31:43 UTC
Liam, I gotta say...JCP sales are killer. Is there any tricks to save even more?
LiamCastellano33 karma2021-08-09 16:37:37 UTC
We always have coupons on the JCP website or mobile app, and if you find a slightly defective item, the cashiers are allowed to give you an extra 10% off. Also the rewards program and JCPenney Credit Cards, but those are advertised like hell lmao
dlauri6521 karma2021-08-09 16:40:14 UTC
Do you get in trouble if they catch you wearing a Macy's or Kohl's store brand item at work?
LiamCastellano42 karma2021-08-09 16:47:12 UTC
Nah, they just judge you silently and take note when choosing who gets promotions 😂
1d0m1n4t316 karma2021-08-09 16:42:48 UTC
Do you carry men's 40x30 slacks?

Level with us: head-to-toe St. John's Bay?
That's what I'd do. Hashtag gangsta shit

Literally my work uniform
mrnotu8 karma2021-08-09 16:36:21 UTC
Is it true that JCPenny Department Store was the first to mark up their items just before a "Storewide Sale" so they could sell them at the actual regular cost?
LiamCastellano17 karma2021-08-09 16:44:01 UTC
Not sure if we were the first, but we DEFINITELY do that, yes

Every catch a couple having sex on the changing room?
LiamCastellano7 karma2021-08-09 19:17:58 UTC
Not yet, dreading the day 😩
chompchompnomnom3 karma2021-08-09 16:29:04 UTC
What sort of shop is JCPenny, is that like our UK Debenhams?
LiamCastellano7 karma2021-08-09 16:33:33 UTC
It's a retail department store, comparable to Macy's

What is the one thing you absolutely hate about customers?
LiamCastellano5 karma2021-08-09 16:41:31 UTC
People don't realize that we too are humans, and we make mistakes just like anyone else
SFM_irl1 karma2021-08-09 16:37:38 UTC
Liam Castellano, with that combination of names was Italia 90 a contentious time in your family?
(Reference to soccer match between Ireland and Italy)
LiamCastellano1 karma2021-08-09 16:45:56 UTC
Oh no, that's not even my legal name lmao
atomskfooly-13 karma2021-08-09 16:30:11 UTC
Where do you work?
LiamCastellano8 karma2021-08-09 16:33:43 UTC
TheKrispyJew-18 karma2021-08-09 16:32:37 UTC
Why are y'all JCPenney workers so pretentious. You peddle Macy's priced clothes while providing forever 21 quality?
