    I have been working at Party City part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working stock in one of their stores was a great high school experience. I enjoyed it highly. The longer you are there, the better you are treated.

    Cons

    You will be paid minimum wage if you work in a store. There are no traditional benefits. To get time off, you typically need to have someone cover for you..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't apply cookie cutter decisions to all of your stores. They are not all identical.

    Halloween Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Party City.

    Interview Details

    They will usually take just about anyone as Halloween approaches because they just need bodies to fill the store. The earlier you get hired, the "better" the job because you will have had time to be trained on register. Usually they only have young girls work the register and the guys are in the back pulling/running costumes. Expect minimum wage and to basically be put on the floor to do nothing but clean for a few hours. They hire a lot for cleaning to avoid OT.

    Interview was basically checking to make sure you look okay and can speak English.
