    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Party City.

    Interview

    First I got a phone call from the manager which lasted a few minutes. She asked if I was available for interview the next day
    One of the assistant managers was the one who interviewed me (the interview was held in the backroom)
    Interview was brief - no more than 8 questions
    Basic questions such as tell me about yourself, why do you want to work here, what are three words to describe you, etc.
    Since I applied for a seasonal position they asked me Halloween specific questions

    Later they call you another time to let offer you the job position

    Interview

    The interview wasn't bad at all. I applied online and a week later, I was called for an interview the next day. The manager just basically went through my resume and asked questions from it and he made casual conversation so I was relaxed and comfortable. None of the interview questions were hard, they were very simple and was very easy to answer.
