    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at J. C. Penney in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    the three phone interviews i had were grueling! the interviews consisted of telling about specific situations, actions, results for various aspects of the retail business world. Each of these three interviews tool approximately one hour each. there was about a week between each phone interview before I was scheduled for a face to face interview. only to wait about a month before i was sent a generic email thanking me for my interest, but i was no longer being considered for this position.
