I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at J. C. Penney in October 2011.

Interview Details Interviewer was very unfriendly and seemed very bored, not at all interested in hiring me from the start. It was my first job interview, and it was very awkward and super short. Interviewer asked what position I wanted, what hours I was available, and a few generic questions all beginning with, "name a time where you ________" etc.

Interview Question – Describe a situation where you had to make a sincere effort to succeed after a previous failure.   Answer Question
