    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Party City (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    Pretty simple, I went in and they asked me a few questions about my availability and why I thought I could do the job. The interview really was not that long at all. It was my first job so I had no experience, that may have contributed to my short answers but it worked out in the end.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Party City.

    Interview

    It was a very quick process as the position ends on November 15th. An online assessment is required but it's self explanatory and obvious what answers they're looking for. The interview was 10 minutes with an assistant manger, they called my references later that day and I was offered the job 2 days later. I came in the next day to fill out my paperwork and started a few days after that.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Party City.

    Interview

    It was supposed to be a 2 step process, but since I came to the interview hours early (thought I was supposed to be in at 10am not 1pm) the GM of the store interviewed me. We went into the office and he asked me a bunch of questions about myself and how I think a sales associate should act in certain situations. The interview was very relaxed and casual, not interrogating at all. Just be sure to smile a lot (my cheeks hurt afterwards) and you'll be set.
