PM: We have a great career path at jcp salons. We have three levels of designers with specific training requirements. We have also created a new training position—Artistic Lead Designer—that is based in the field. Artistic Lead Designers are trained by Nick Stenson and his team to deliver our core and trend training to jcp salon stylists across the country.
MS: HOW WILL JCPENNEY’S ARTISTIC AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR STYLISTS ENHANCE THE CLIENT EXPERIENCE?
PM: The core training that Nick Stenson and his team have developed allows our stylists to give high quality cuts and finishes consistently across the country. Along with technical training, we are also investing in our stylists and further elevating our salon experience with strong, customer-focused training aimed at and created for our loyal and repeat customers.
With nearly 950 locations nationwide, we operate the largest volume of full service salons, under one brand, in the country. With our new artistic direction and training, coupled with our new company transformation, our salons are more exciting than ever. Visit jcpenney.com.
