    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Party City in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was hired on the spot and wasn't asked any questions. Though the manager did go on for 20 minutes about football. I was prepared for many different interview questions, but not football. The manager was really nice though, and made me feel at ease and comfortable. It would have been a good conversation except I don't like football and I only understood less than one-third of what he was saying.

    District Manager Interview

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Party City in September 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty fast and easy. Halloween is like their Christmas so they need all the help they can get. They are really only looking for dependability and availability. And an outgoing personality I think I got hired on that alone.
