    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Eatontown, NJ) in February 2014.

    Interview

    First you will have an initial phone interview. Next you will interview with a store leader in the store they are thinking of placing you. Lastly, you will interview with the district leader, which could be quite a bit of distance from your potential store location, but worth it if you get that far into the process.
