    Application

    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.
