Interview Details – I thought the interview was going to go well since the J.C Pennys was exactly across from my school but it did not. The manager wanted me to work on the weekends which I have no problems doing but I will not work until 11:00 PM in the middle of the night when I have to have someone else as my source of transportation and also a minor at the time, 17. I was denied a job because I did not want to work until 11:00 PM and still in high school.

Interview Details – I applied online, received a call 10 days latter to come in for an interview.. When I got there I seen like 9 more ppl then I realized it was a group interview! Manager introduced herself then she got the store manager and assistant store manager, they asked us Questions, it was so easy! My advice would be to sit straight and smile one of the girls was not speaking up and the SD told her she needs to speak up if she wants to work there! After she told us she would be giving us a call not to call her back, she called me next day offering me the job I accepted ! She let me knw that they were going to run a background check and ill get a call back for my job trainer, I got a call 1 week and 4 days later! Good Luck! :)
