    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was hired as a seasonal employee for Christmas. I walked into the room and had to sign a waiting list. I was called in a couple minutes later. There were multiple interviewing stations throughout the room. It was very quite and the interview went by smooth. It was like I was talking to a friend. First I gave a little backstory about myself and then I was asked questions about what I would do in certain situations with a customer and was given options. I had to choose the best answer and explain why I chose it. The overall interview took only about 5 minutes. I was hired on the spot and told I would get a call in 2 weeks for training.

    I applied online. I interviewed at J. C. Penney.

    Interview

    The interview process with JC Penney was quick, fun, and easy. I scheduled an initial screening interview with the recruiter using Calendly - so there was no back and forth - and we established salary expectations up front so there were no surprises at the end. Next, I talked to the hiring manager to learn more details and ask questions about the role. Finally, I completed around five Skype interviews with different individuals within the company. Everyone was kind, clear, and intelligent and the interviews were a good balance between situational interview questions and casual conversation. I received my offer in a timely fashion after the final interview, and the recruiter and hiring team made themselves available to me for any and all questions before I accepted. I felt valued and respected during the interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    It took a really long time for them to get back to me after applying, months, I believe. However, from there on, they were good at communicating with me. They flew me to Dallas and booked me a hotel for the interview. Had a panel interview and gave a case study presentation to a group of employees.
