    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Party City (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screening with Regional HR and then applied on line. Interview with Regional Director did not start well as he was 15 minutes late and then spent another 30 minutes walking the store before making time for the interview. Spent time walking the store together(not much enthusiasm from the RD), then spent time going through a few standard behavior and one off questions. Asked if I had any questions and then rushed me out. Not a great fit and the RD obviously agreed, but have the courtesy to show up on time.

    A Corporate Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockleigh, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Party City (Rockleigh, NJ) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The process was typical and it was a good experience to begin with. I was not offered the role but that is okay, you don't get them all. What is not okay is not responding to my follow-up emails and voice mails a few weeks later. The interview was many, many months ago and they still haven't told me I was not getting it. I understand not responding to everyone who applies but to ignore people you've actually met with is wrong. It makes me wonder if they treat their employees with no respect as well.

    Corporate Office Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockaway, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Party City (Rockaway, NJ).

    Interview

    Applied online and a few weeks later an HR rep called with a few questions and then scheduled an in person interview for the following week.

    I went into corporate office and the hiring manager had a different idea of what the job entailed compared to the actual job description. She was brief, kept looking at her watch and didnt even try to understand my background before ushering me into the VP's office. He was even worse, asking unreasonable questions that also didnt pertain to the job.

    Not sure I'd want to work there even if I was offered a job.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Party City (Richardson, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    They call less than a week, after the call they schedule an interview for the next day is really easy ones you get the interview and the interview is casual like a one on one conversation they talk to you like if they already knew you. Be confident and make them see you really want to work.

    They called me just once and asked me some questions and then asked me when I could come in for a face to face interview and after that interview they asked me when I can start.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Party City (Caguas, PR) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was long but it was as expected,
    I guess they were a lot of people just for one position. But the manager was direct and to the point the interview was 1:1 The questions they asked were average but concise. At one point the let me to believe I was the chosen resource but unfortunately it was not.
