JTime is a proprietary online portal for JCPenney employees to manage their time and attendance. Launched in 2011, the system replaced the previous paper-based time tracking system. With JTime, employees can easily access their work information from any device with Internet access.

Some of the main features and capabilities of JTime include:

  • Clocking in and out for shifts
  • Viewing work schedules
  • Requesting time off
  • Reviewing accrued vacation and sick time
  • Receiving notifications from managers
  • Viewing pay statements
  • Changing availability preferences
  • Accessing company news and resources
  • …etc.

JTime provides greater transparency and convenience for both employees and managers by moving time tracking and other workforce management tasks online. It helps keep everyone on the same page.

Eligibility for Accessing JTime

Access to JTime is available to all active JCPenney employees after onboarding. New hires are granted access to the system upon the successful completion of orientation.

Both regular and seasonal employees can use JTime. However, the visibility of some features may depend on the employee’s status. For example, seasonal employees may not have vacation/sick time accumulation reflected in the system.
