I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at J. C. Penney (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2009.

Interview

A telephone interview was conducted in the late afternoon, and I was told to meet face-to-face the next afternoon. I was told I had the job but had to take a mathematics/ spatial reasoning test. I was told it was merely a formality. I scored well anyway and began in a week.
