    Pros

    Nice people, very supportive. They have good benefits, good values, good time off and training policies.

    Cons

    Low salary, Forced to join Union, and Union takes 10% of your pay and offers you discounts on movie tickets.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. You should ask your lower level employees for ideas that could help the store.

    Pros

    One of the pro's to working for Century 21 was their willingness to assist you in acquiring the experience needed in the cosmetics field where many companies were not. I managed to gain the experience at not just my brand but also many other brands on the cosmetics floor which gave me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge the field.

    Cons

    The only con to working here is the lack of raise in pay.

    Pros

    Cool people, possibility for overtime is constant, meet a lot of interesting people (tourists), a lot of customer service experience....

    Cons

    Room for growth is non-existent as you have guards there who've been working for two years still enduring the lackluster entails of an entry level position.

    Advice to Management

    Create a condition, specifically, where there can be some sort of route to a promotion, with whatever stipulated terms garnered to aid the process.

    Pros

    The cashiers are always working non-stop. You definitely won't be bored and you can't say you have nothing to do. Therefore time passes very quickly

    Cons

    You'll have so much work that your lunch break might be delayed. Also the finger print scanning system was annoying. It will shrink your lunch break in half.


  10. Worst place to work at. Take my word for it.

    Co-workers tend to be nice

    Cons

    Management sucks, and they are stingy with promotions

    Think a lot before working here. Working here is not a long term deal when you want to survive living in NYC.

    Pros

    the co-workers are really nice. good use for job experience for your next job

    Cons

    Salary!!!! They give you small raises and expect you to live like that, the work you do there is not appreciative in the case of raises.

    Advice to Management

    more communication and appreciation toward your work and help fight for raises that we deserve.
