LANSING, Mich. — JCPenney is preparing for crowds of festive shoppers during the upcoming holiday season by hiring 70 seasonal associates throughout the Lansing area for a variety of store positions. Available customer service and support positions include cashiers, replenishment specialists, SEPHORA inside JCPenney beauty consultants and more. JCPenney offers seasonal associates a full associate discount up to 25%, as well as flexible holiday scheduling.

To fill the seasonal positions, each JCPenney location is hosting an annual National Hiring Day event on Tuesday, Oct. 15, from 2-8 p.m. During the event, management will be holding in-person interviews and making employment offers to qualified candidates on-the-spot. All skill levels are welcome and individuals are encouraged to apply online at [] or in-store at one of our applicant kiosks prior to attending the event.

For the second year, JCPenney is offering generous incentive packages for 16 randomly-drawn winners as a way to attract and retain associates. Available awards include trips to San Antonio, San Francisco, Washington D.C. or a “choose your Marriott escape” – all of which include paid lodging, airfare and entertainment. Other prize packages, each worth $2,500, include a home entertainment bundle, Apple laptop bundle and kitchen appliance makeover. All hourly associates and seasonal associates in stores, supply chain and call centers that remain with the Company through December 2019 are eligible to win.

Additionally, as JCPenney salon locations across the nation continue to grow, the second annual Salon by InStyle stylist hiring day will take place from 1-4 p.m. on October 21 at the Lansing Mall JCPenney (5304 W Saginaw St, Lansing, MI 48917).

Highly experienced stylists can also take advantage of leading commission rates, no booth rental fees and flexible scheduling. As always, JCPenney salon stylists enjoy perks including paid professional training worth up to $2,000, health benefits for full-time stylists, paid time off and 401K eligibility.
