    Interview

    Start out with a interview with the regional HR manager to see your interest in the company. Then would speak with one of the district managers to where you had interest in employment. After that would be placed into a store after hired and would work under the general manager to get trained for your position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Party City in June 2013.

    Interview

    Spoke with the DM and store manager for the first interview. Nothing out of the normal questions that you'd get in the standard interview. Mostly questions about my previous jobs and what I did and what positions I had. The DM gave me the standard we are still interviewing so we'll be in touch. I believe I will be called back for the next step in the process and move on from there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Party City (Indianapolis, IN) in November 2012.

    Interview

    It started with a call from a recruiter. After that interview I had a phone interview with the DM. From there I had an in person interview with the DM. The last interview was with the DM, RM and Regional HR Manager. It was definitely the hardest interview I've ever been through. I wasn't sure how I had done, but I got the job in the end. The HR manager handled most of the last interview. The RM interviewed me mostly at the end of the interview.
