Face paced , very hard hard work
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Valley Stream, NYNovember 14, 2018
This company has very high expectations for their employees but are not willing to train employees on how to lead. The work is fairly easy but very detailed and the standards are very high. Yet, there is no room for advancement or pay raise after you have mastered those things.
Pros
Engages employees, encourages employees to be positive
Cons
low pay wages, no room for advancement

Asset Protection Specialist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 11, 2018
Greeted plenty of customers and tourists. Learned a lot about safety in public places. Management was strict but also easy-going. The hardest part about the job was the standing for long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was apprehending shoplifters.

Not so much pressure but frustrating and people were not held accountable. Given opportunities to shine but management wasn't the strongest.

Not so much pressure but frustrating and people were not held accountable. Given opportunities to shine but management wasn't the strongest. Sometimes felt like the smartest person in the room.

Cheap!
Cashier / Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYOctober 9, 2018
The job culture at Century 21 is good but the amount of work for little pay that is expected of you isn't fair. They pay minimum wage and to live in NYC that isn't enough.

It's not worth it.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  New York n. Y.October 3, 2018
They paint a pretty picture but it's nothing as they say. They promised you so much but you never see that promise come true. The pay is horrible the hours and schedules are horrible as well . You don't have a life after the schedule that they give you your so tired you don't want to do anything after work. Management is bad not all the managers are as bad. You're basically a prisoner when you weren't there can't even talk to your acquaintance because they treat you to be like a prisoner. It's just a sad place to work in.
Pros
Great people to work with meaning your coworkers.
Cons
The pain and the management is horrible. Basically the pay rate is horrible.
