JCPenney plans to hire as many as 300 seasonal associates across Louisiana for the back-to-school season.

The company says a variety of store positions are open, including cashier, replenishment specialist and SEPHORA inside JCPenney beauty consultant. JCPenney offers seasonal associates a full associate discount up to 25 percent, as well as flexible holiday scheduling, a press release states.

The release states that JCPenney also is seeking experienced stylists for the company’s salon program. According to the release, the company’s 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 booth rental fees. JCPenney salon stylists enjoy perks such as paid artistic training, health benefits for full-time stylists, paid time off and 401K eligibility.”

Interested locals at all skill levels are encouraged to apply in store using the JCPenney Applicant Kiosk, or online by visiting  and searching for “seasonal” jobs in their market.

Those candidates hired as seasonal associates have the opportunity to be hired as permanent associates, as needed on a store-by-store basis.
