    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.
