Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Party Staff (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.

The interview process was okay. You go in and fill out paper work and take a small quiz just to see that you know that basics of what you are applying for. The interviewer was also very friendly.

    Server/Bartender Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Party Staff (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It took over an hour. You'll be filling out an application and will be taking a catering quiz - depending on your knowledge of catering and such, this might take a long time. Then you'll give your quiz to the front desk to get graded. You'll then have to do a physical test of placing down plates at a banquet table (how do you serve, where should protein be...etc).

    Then they'll pull you aside to do a one-on-one to get to know you a bit better and look at your resume. The person who interviewed me was super sketchy when I inquired about pay. Would not give me a straight forward answer of how much it pays per hour for servers but will only say bartenders and captains make more, sometimes there are tips and sometimes not. Per previous reviews, the shadiness regarding pay probably comes from the fact that it's extremely low. Couldn't even give me a range. Didn't answer if they reimbursed gas, just that "well, you can see the address of where you're going, you can accept or declined". I'm going to take that as a no.

    Then you'll get invited to a second interview, skills assessment. If picked, then you'll stay for an extra hour of paid training.

    Server/Bartender Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Costa Mesa, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Party Staff (Costa Mesa, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    They had an ad on Craigslist. The ad referenced their website where you could apply online. Their website didn't work properly. However, they did call me, so evidently the website did do something. I was invited in to fill out an application - allow 30-45 mins as the application included a test. After the application I was invited in to interview. It was a simple and pleasant interview, a pay rate was offered and I was invited back the next day for a paid orientation. The "orientation" is in two parts - the first part is disclosure about the job and their expectations and is very interactive. This part is NOT paid. Again, you can leave or be dismissed, but, if you are asked to stay then you have become an employee and they finish the orientation. This part IS paid - at minimum wage. This is where you fill out all your paperwork and learn how their computerized online scheduling application works. Overall it was a pleasant and professional experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Party Staff (San Diego, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I saw it on the internet, the advertisement. I sent a resume and they contacted me about three weeks later. They then conducted a group interview where they cut the people they didn't want. After that we had our last interview which was basically filling out paper work and going over rules. Advice to candidates? Don't even bother--this is a bad, bad company

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation whatsoever. Since they view us as mere cattle, they obviously don't negotiate with us.
