Recently, JCPenny and JCP Salon announced their new Project Cinderella, which is a new employment and compensation program that combines the benefits of working for a salon and being an independent stylist. 
Project Cinderella was established early this year on January 29th. The main perks for this are the fact that there aren't any rental or supply fees. They are also basing commission for beginning designers at 50% and could go up to 70% for top "master" stylists. 

Natalie Lockhart, who is the vice president of JCPenny salons, states that the new commission structure is "an employment and compensation program that offers senior stylists the benefits of an employment position, with the flexibility and earning potential of an independent salon operator". She also states that their goal is to attract new stylists to work at their salons. They feel that the commission benefits create an environment that gives their employees the opportunity to grow and thrive. 

Below is a list of incentives for those who are interested in becoming Project Cinderella associates: 
  • Flexible scheduling, stylists are able to arrange their own schedules 
  • Stylists are also given the option to establish their own individual service pricing
  • Benefits. Stylists are also considered part of the JCPenny team, which enrolls them into medical and dental insurance, paid time off, discounts and even a 401k retirement plan!
  • FREE education! JCPenny believes learning is essential to growth and offers comprehensive education programs for their stylists. 
 What do you think about Project Cinderella? Does this give stylists more of an incentive to work in an environment like this rather than being solely an independent stylist? Let us know by tweeting at us or commenting on our other social platforms using #StandishStuff
