It's your duty to go to the selection process. It doesn't mean you will be selected.

Not sure about your state, but in MN you can defer your service for up to two months, usually for things that cannot be rearranged or that cause undue hardship. By law, your employer must accommodate your service, however they do not have to pay you. Yeah, it sucks going and getting paid $10 per day, but it's better than getting sent to jail for skipping out. And they will.

When I went last year I was there 3 days before being dismissed. Basically I showed up at 8am and sat in a big room full of people until 4 pm each day. It was awful (but you can sleep I guess). If you get called for selection, they put you in a courtroom and ask you questions and may or may not pick you for a case.

Whether they pick or not, you get sent back down to the juror pool and the cycle begins again until your 2-weeks is up. In my case, I got lucky and they didn't need any more jurors for my term.

Have you tried to go on call-in status? You usually call in twice a day and they tell you if you have to report to the waiting room. Once you have to report, you're stuck going in each day.
