    Interview

    I was part of a group interview. They had us do various tasks together and switch off leading and following. We built a block tower together by one person looking at an iPad and describing the tower to the other people; then every half minute we would have to hand it off to the next person to describe. We also each looked at a different direction to take the company and had to argue our direction and then agree on one in the end.

    Filled application with request for schooling time off and Sunday mornings. These requests were not honored.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Bellevue, WA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online, and the next day I was called to come in for an interview. I was told I'd be interviewing with 3 different people. It was all very basic, the first lady was very nice, just asking questions like why do you want to work hear and asking about past experiences. Went smoothly, and then she brought in the second lady. She was very laid-back as well, and asked many of the same questions, and also asked me to roll-play as if I were a cashier and she was a customer and I was ringing something up. Seemed odd considering this wasn't really a sales job. Apparently the positions here require a completely open schedule which I couldn't do, and she didn't have me see the 3rd person. Was the easiest interview I'd ever done.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretend I'm a customer and I'm buying this item, and you're the cashier.   Answer Question
