    Easy Interview

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

    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.

    Applied online, got a call requesting an interview a few days later.

It was an easy process, they were friendly and I got a call the next day with a job offer that I accepted.
