    Loss Prevention Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oneida, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Oneida, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Set up and interview with the loss prevention manager, he seemed very interested in me but told me he still had other people to interview. Told me he would give me a call before the month was over and all his interviews were finished. Said he would call even if I didn't get the job so that I wouldn't be waiting for it. Never called. It's been almost 2 months later so I'm just assuming I didn't get the job. Ha ha.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    App is online and assessment challenging, but the interview was not difficult, the key is to be proactive in all your answers and you will be fine. If the hiring manager likes you as a person you will be ok in the hiring process since it is a one on one interview and not a panel interview.

    Loss Prevention Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tucson, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Tucson, AZ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had applied once and was interviewed once by the Area Manager, it was a fairly standard LP interview. After the interview was over, I was told that I did well and should expect a call to schedule a second interview with the District Manger, however I never received a call. I called several times to ask about a second interview and to see if the position was still available, I was never able to get a hold of the Area Manager and was never called back.
    A year later, the LPA position opened up again, I once again interviewed with the Area Manager and this time was given a second interview with the District Manager, both of which went well and I was hired.
