I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Party City in September 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring process was incredibly quick. I applied online on a whim. Less than an hour later I got a call to schedule an interview for the very next day. The interview itself was very laid back and the manager was a really nice guy which took away from the nerves. A couple of questions were asked, mainly concerning my past with Halloween and about what I would do in certain situations like handling difficult people or of I encountered a task I couldn't do, etc. After about half and hour, I got offered the job.

Interview Question – If I encountered a customer who was in a bad mood and didn't know what costume to choose, how would I handle the situation?   Answer Question

Henderson, NV

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Party City.

Interview Details – I initially went in and asked about how I can apply and one of the managers, very friendly, said that I had to apply online. So, I did, and afterwards I gave it a day or so and called in and mentioned it. They said they weren't interviewing yet so I waited a couple of days, and then went into the store and mentioned my name and that I had called and also submitted an application and they said they would call. The next day, they called and asked me when I was available and I told them asap, then I got the actual interview. The interview had been incredibly easy and I found that I stressed for no reason and it was an average length.

Interview Question – I don't recall any.   Answer Question

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Party City in September 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online through allretailjobs.com and about a week later got a call to come in for the interview two days later. When I got to there I had to wait 20 minutes because the manager was still with another interview. The interview took about 30 minutes and he asked basic questions and he asked me if I had any questions. He then went on to tell me about the company and about himself and asked if I was still interested and said yes. He then told me that he saw something special in me and offered me the job on the spot.

Negotiation Details – He told me the job would pay minimum wage and I did not negotiate with him since it is only a temporary job.
