    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Roseville, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewer made my first interview more comfortable. Pretty easy going. They seemed REALLY really dedicated to making this the number 1 VS their competitors at the mall. It was supposed to be a group interview but ended up being just me and this other lady. She just asked generic questions about myself and she ask where we'd see ourselves in 10 years..

    Be prepared for group interviews. Tons of example questions, customer service questions, scenario questions. They ask which department you would like to work in and they really do take that into consideration because you might get stuck recovering in it until 12 at night. They will not let you leave until its cleaned
