    I worked at Party City full-time

    Pros

    Party City is always going to have a special place in my heart. The team is great. They are friendly,kind, and they turn into more like family. You meet some of the greatest people.

    Cons

    Don't want to run into a mad customer all because the costume didn't fit. It's a bad day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have any advice except keep doing what you do. They do a great job

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Party City.

    Interview

    I applied online and I got a response in less than a week. They seemed very eager to hire for seasonal employees, so they pretty much hire anyone. With that being said the whole process was easy because they need people to accommodate the crazy Halloween hours.
