The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J. C. Penney in June 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online. First there was a phone interview with the HR rep. Then a one on one interview with the store manager of the JCPenney you would be interning at. And then there was another phone interview with the district manager.

The first interview was the most nerve wracking and intense but after that it actually got much easier
