JC Penney Cashier Interview

JC Penney Cashier
Bellevue, WA

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

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