Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at J. C. Penney in September 2009.

Interview Details

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.
