The answer is yes, but your time isn't worth much. On my multiple stints as a juror I was compensated at the rate of $12.50 per day. I was fortunate enough to work for an employer that paid me the difference for every day I was on the jury.

What is the process of jury selection?

Every court system has access to a pool of potential jurors. When a trial date is set, several dozen potential jurors are selected and notified to appear at the courthouse at a certain day and time. The jurors are then asked if this will cause an undue hardship (cannot take time off work, cannot maintain reliable transportation, etc.) - any who qualify in the judge's opinion are excused at this time. The remaining potential jurors are then questioned by the prosecutors and the defense - each can veto up to a certain number of jurors. When 12 jurors are agreed upon by the judge, the prosecution and the defense, as well as one or two alternates in case the seated jury loses a member, the remaining potential jurors are released from duty.
