I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at J. C. Penney in August 2011.

Interview Details – I googled interviewing questions. I copied them and I wrote down my answers to the questions. Then I memorized the answers. I was interviewed by a Man and a Woman @ the same time. And they asked me every question that I studied for so I basically aced the interview.
