    Interview

    It was fun. I had a blast and would do it again. It felt like your typical interview, they ask you the same questions that all companies do. How did you find out about us, why do you want to work for us, and so on and so forth.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was 4 of us interviewed with one HR manager so it was pretty small. Mostly we did challenges like try to sell a department to the rest of the group. I guess she wanted to see our communication skills. A lot of the interview was just her explaining what we would do in the store if we were to get hired.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Richmond, CA).

    Interview

    The process was very brief. They asked very general questions. There was a group of approximately 5 candidates and two employees supervising the process. They went around asking the employees to give us a brief rundown of our history then put forward questions and asked certain people to answer them.

    I applied online. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Buffalo, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and I was called about a week later. I came in for a group interview and there was five of us. We then did a team exercise where we had to take turns instructing the group on how to build this block structure. We only had 10 seconds to look at the picture of the blocks and then 60 seconds to tell the group how to move the blocks. It was supposed to show them how we worked as a team. They then took us back one by one to ask us questions about our application.

    Interview

    I applied online. After a week I got a phone call inviting me for an interview. The interview was a group one, we were three applicants. The interview was easy and simple and then they interviewed us separately which was easy and fast just asked me to tell her about my self.. I was offered a position and pay on the spot and I was told they will contact me after my background check comes back. It's been almost two weeks now and didn't hear from them. Very disappointed
