Full Answer

JCPenney offers a number of entry-level part-time employment positions that require little previous job experience. Common positions in the company's retail stores include sales, customer assistance, management and stock.

As of 2014, JCPenney has a total of around 117,000 employees. In April 2012, the company laid off a large number of managers, supervisors and long-time employees as the company shifted to new practices requiring less oversight.

The first JCPenney store was opened in 1902 by James Cash Penney in Kemmerer, Wyoming.
