Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Century 21 Department Stores (New York, NY).

Interview

You do a series of math questions. You can only get 3 wrong. I think it's 10 questions from what I remember. Then you wait for the manager to call you and a few others for a group interview. Manager told certain people they'll get a call but in reality they won't. Those who stay get a job. They let u now to come back for a training.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Century 21 Department Stores.

    Interview

    i was sat in a room with a bunch of other girls and we were all given some math sheet. it was easy. HR and corporate staff were unprofessional and already got the feeling that they dont really care about their employees. The interview was short and to the point. She asked me about my retail experience. I didn't have a lot and i think thats why i probably didnt get an offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Century 21 Department Stores (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    the interview was done in a group forum. About 7/8 of us interviewed at the same time. a question was asked and each person had an opportunity to answer. It was nerve wracking because you had to try your hardest not to sound like you are stealing someone else's answer. The interviewer was stone faced and seemed to be barely listening to us. Most people answered fairly well in my estimation. After she asked about 4 questions, she called a few names and thanked those people for coming and told them she would be in touch. She then proceeded to congratulate the remaining few (including me) on the new position being offered.
