I agree with MemberSince99. I don't think you'll get denied getting a job because you're under review for the JCPenney card. I feel like a credit check for a job might be something just to make sure you don't have any major baddies like bankruptcy or something. I don't know - but I really don't think they'll not hire you because you don't have enough lines of credit or your utilization is too high (common factors for getting denied).
Also - it might just be that something in your credit report was unclear that needs a manual review. I've gotten the 7-10 days thing twice and ended up getting both cards.
Good luck to you and I hope you get the job and the card!
