    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Century 21 Department Stores (Brooklyn, NY) in October 2017.


    I applied online. the application was actually pretty long. filling it out completely took about 45 minutes. I was answered 2 days later. I received a phone call to come in for an interview. I came 20 minutes early so I looked around the store and at the workers. when i went into human resources their were already two other girls waiting to be interviewed. we all had to complete a math test. it was basic math like if a customer bought an item for $45.67 and gave you $50 how much would you give back. we then began the group interview and the interviewer was very nice and casual. At the end of the interview she called people out one by one and only me and one other girl remained. she came back in and told us we had received the job and we needed to fill out our paper work.
