Do you work at JCPenney? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

You can apply right online through their website at jcpenney.net, or you can go into the store and apply on their computer. They are always looking for friendly people!

I have just started with JC Penney. They are after employees that "Give a Pickle" Walk into work with the right attitude and you'll go a long way. Don't just stand there stuffing a sack and begrudging a customer... Customers are who we're there for after all.

Do you have a friend who could sit down and look at one of your applications with you? If you don't have a printout of the ones you submitted alread, you could do another. I like the free service at my county's job service, really nice people. A friend in TX (really!) just today recommended Catholic Charities to me--as having a great placement service and for free.

Maybe there's something in your application that you could improve on--either by shining a light on your strengths more, or improving or adding some skill the store would want for the position you applied for.

I wish you the best of luck! I am new to this online thing. I am not so comfortable with it. I like to meet the people I'd work for.

Another thing I noticed today, poking around the JC Penney website--not to many jobs come up available where I live. I wonder--what if I print the application out (I'll see if I can) and bring it with me, or fill one out at the store-- I remember earlier, maybe last year, you could still fill them out at the store. I bet if the personnel folks meet you there and see your app--they know you exist, they know you know how to get there, they might keep your application and consider it for an opening.

You have to lie on the personality test or you won't get a foot in the door. Be the life of the party, above average in every way even if you don't know what average is.

I had my interview with JCP n it went really well, I was hired on the spot. The manager said she really really wanted my on her team, all they needed was the background check n then the will call for training.. well It's been over a week, n I received a copy of the background Check n it was great, as I expected.. still no call.. I had another offer from a different retail store, so I had to go with them.. tho I really wanted JCP.. had anyone else been through this?
Curious?????
