    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Party City (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Went there to fill out application in person and listed nights and weekends as my availability knowing it was a long shot but figured matbe they did stocking or something at night to have full hours. Was called in for an interview that was pretty simple and more of the manager talking about the job than asking me questions. After he saw my availability he pretty much told me that it wouldnt work for him.... I kinda wish he would've checked what I clearly wrote on the application before calling otherwise simple interview

    Interview

    Simplest interview ever, if you have common sense. Mostly about customer service experience and retail. If you know how to help a customer and troubleshoot on a whim, you're more than likely to be hired.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Party City.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call about a week later they asked me to come in the next day for an interview but I misheard and thought the interview was the following Monday (oops) at the time of my interview the manager who was interviewing me called and still had me come in. He didn't even mind that I was late and I apologized a lot and he even joked about it. He really didn't mind an was understanding about it all. The interviewing was easy there were pretty typical questions plus some specific to party's which I will list down below. Overall pretty easy. Got a call a few hours after the interview and was offered the job.

    I was already employed with the company when I was promoted to Assistant manager so I was already a contender, however, my first position which was the Full Time Team Lead was very easy in my opinion.
