JCPenney to Host National Hiring Days for Seasonal Associates and Salon Stylists

The Christmas season is quickly approaching, and JCPenney is getting ready for crowds of eager customers by increasing staff for the holiday shopping rush. The Company plans to hire over 40,000 seasonal associates for a variety of positions in stores, facilities and customer care centers. And to fill the tens of thousands of seasonal positions available in our approximately 875 stores, JCPenney is hosting its first-ever National Hiring Day on Oct. 17 from 2-8 p.m. local time.

National Hiring Day events will take place in each of our locations across the country, welcoming applicants interested in earning extra money for the season, enjoying an associate discount for holiday shopping or even beginning a career with high potential for growth. We’ll be seeking associates for a variety of customer service and support positions, including cashier, replenishment specialist, SEPHORA inside JCPenney beauty consultant and more. Management will be holding in-person interviews and making employment offers to candidates on-the-spot. All skill levels are welcome, and candidates are encouraged to apply online at or in-store at one of our applicant kiosks prior to attending the event.
