    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Party City (Boston, MA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    i received a call on Sunday and came in on Wednesday to have the interview, I was interviewed by the assistant manager who really appreciated me being early. it was really chill and it felt more like a conversation than a formal interview. She asked things like what i'd do if a customer needed help, what i would suggest to a customer to buy for a party other than plates, napkins and cups, and other questions about my availability

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any experience with customer service and/or ringing a register? Are you capable of standing on your feet for long hours, climbing a ladder, and lifting a minimum of 50 lbs?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Party City (McDonough, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The process was extremely short, since I wasn't advised on the fact that you have to be 18 minimum to work here. Keep in mind I am 16, so I couldn't get the job.
