    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Party City (Fayetteville, GA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The lady was nice but she asked weird questions. For a sales associate position, she was asking questions for positions like a general manager. That took me by surprise. The employees were rude when I walked it. They were not friendly at all.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Party City.

    Interview

    Very easy interview. The manager pretty much just asked about my availability, and I was hired on the spot. I think they were desperate for seasonal workers so other questions didn't really matter.
