With the back-to-school shopping season approaching, JCPenney plans to hire 575 seasonal associates in Tennessee.

The company announced it is getting ready to hire as many as 100 people in the Knoxville area, which includes the store at Foothills Mall in Maryville, 100 in Memphis and 95 in Nashville.

Available customer service and support positions include cashier, replenishment specialist, SEPHORA inside JCPenney beauty consultant and more. JCPenney offers seasonal associates a full associate discount up to 25 percent, as well as flexible holiday scheduling, according to a company news release.

Additionally, JCPenney is seeking experienced stylists to be part of the company’s salon program that enables incoming stylists with robust client books to set their own hours and pricing and includes perks such as paid artistic training.

Prospects are encouraged to apply in store using the JCPenney Applicant Kiosk, or online by visiting https://jobs.jcp.com and searching for “seasonal” jobs in their market.
