    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Century 21 Department Stores in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got the job through a career counselor in my college. I came in on a Friday and HR were clueless on who I was. I eventually walked away and gained enough courage to come back and try again. I met with a woman named Britney who took me through the interview process. It was casual and easy and I was offered employment on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Century 21 Department Stores in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through workforce 1. They did a brief orientation on what to expect from Century (as well as a few pointers on what hiring managers expect), and was given a math test. Workforce 1 instructed me to then apply online. After I passed the online questionaire I was emailed to come to the store. There, a group of about 10-15 people including myself were given another math test. After the math test, myself and 4 others were brought upstairs for a group interview. After the interview 3 out of the 5 of us were offered jobs on the spot. We then picked our schedules.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Century 21 Department Stores in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    This is Century 21 near West 66 Street, New York, NY. You go in you tell a worker you came in for a interview they direct upstairs in a back room where the employers/ managers are and they give you a Math test sheet to test your ability to calculate, I'm guessing for the Cashier part of the job. After you finish and the other group is finished they call a group of about 6 and ask you a few questions.

    Questions to the group:

    Introduce yourselves and name one thing we wouldn't know about you by looking at you?

    Name one time you went out of your way for a customer/stranger/ co worker who is not a friend?

    Name one time you think you put a lot of effort in your work?

    Describe a time when you provided excellent customer service.
