Part-Time Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Party City (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2016.

Interview

The entire interview was less than five minutes. I didn't learn until I got the call for the interview that the manager was someone I went to school with. I was still called in nonetheless. I was asked only three questions: can you drive, are you available on the weekends, and are you currently in school. I was hired on the spot.

    The process was extremely short, since I wasn't advised on the fact that you have to be 18 minimum to work here. Keep in mind I am 16, so I couldn't get the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Party City (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2013.

    Interview

    It was set up last minute but it was only because I had come in to turn in my application to the manager and after leaving she immediately called me to come in. I was hired on the spot even though I didn't have a lot of retail experience and I was super nervous so she took pity on me. Which I was very grateful for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Party City (Waterloo, IA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Very easy interview. If you get called back for a interview you already have the job. They hire several people a month because everyone drops like flies in that place. There is always a "Now Hiring" sign looming there in the window that almost never comes down. If you get a job here expect to move on to a different one after a few months.

    Negotiation

    There is nothing to negotiate there. Either you take the job or you don't. I suggest you do not.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Party City (Springfield, MO) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I had applied the week before I was called in. For the interview, I was speaking with the owner of the franchise. He asked me questions regarding my previous employment. He was also curious about my availability for the Halloween season. He was very kind and stern, an odd combination but you could see he cared for his business.
