    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Century 21 Stores (Brooklyn, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The entire thing was a mess from start to finish. I was first interviewed for a stylists position.

    Interview

    I was called back for a second interview but it was not a good fit. The corporate office is embedded into the retail store. The reporting managers were nice and approachable.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Century 21 Stores (Paramus, NJ) in February 2018.

    Interview

    3 step process with senior manager, regional manager, and then director. Second interview with regional manager was the toughest interview. Had to really show him I’d be an asset to the company. Last interview was much more chill.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Century 21 Stores (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Basic interview but it seemed like more of a sales pitch for a used car. Having worked there I now see why they have to "sell" you the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Century 21 Stores (New York, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    You go to HR and sit with a woman but I am not sure what her position was. I believe she was the internship coordinator. The interview was very relaxed and the questions they asked were structured so they could see your work ethic and problem solving skills. Of course, they also asked if you know about Century 21 and why this company seems like a place you would like to work.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you explain a time you ever ran into a problem in a professional place and had to come up with a plan to solve the issue at hand.   1 Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Century 21 Stores (New York, NY) in April 2011.

    Interview

    the interview process was lengthy and took over 6 weeks, two phone interviews with same person, met with each owner on different days, human resources was not involved and no interview conducted with human resources, questions were repetitive leading me to believe little communication among interviewers

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Century 21 Stores (New York, NY) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty smooth. It started with a light phone interview and proceeded into a face to face interview with a DMM and one of the owners of the company. It then proceeded into a follow up interview with the other owner and another DMM. The interviewees were comfortable to talk to and nice. I would suggest that if you get interviewed at Century 21 that you know and understand who are you are meeting with and the company history.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Century 21 Stores (New York, NY) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Terrible. HR reaches out to you and has absolutely zero regard for your time or schedule. Claimed to value communication but ignore your emails. Badmouthed a former employee during the interview, which was a huge red flag for me. Also badmouthed someone currently on the team calling them "sensitive." Abruptly cut off all communication when they did not want to hire me. Absolutely awful experience. Red flags all over the place. Sounds like there is a high turnover rate. My advice: don't even bother interviewing with them. You won't be happy working there.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions asked with fake enthusiasm. Asks you to complete projects at home and then ignores you afterwards.   Answer Question
