I applied on the Party City website. This was the month before Halloween, when they are in need of staff asap. Next day I was called in for an interview and got hired on the spot.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Party City Corporation? What are the steps along the way?
I applied online, the next day I got a call for an interview, then the next day I had an interview. They’re very organized and easy to apply to and interview with. Got hired on the spot.
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Party City Corporation?
Be yourself and you should get the job guaranteed as long as you can do basic tasks like climbing on stairs and picking up stuff.
If you’re applying for management and you are a sit in the office and lead from the rear type then forget it. You have to be actively involved in every aspect of the store. In other words if you’re lazy don’t apply
Unable to deal with the stress and unattainable expectations placed on the store by corporate. We were a franchise store that was acquired by corporate and were not adequately trained, yet expected to know and complete everything. I worked for the franchise for over 15 years but lasted only 5 months when corporate took over.
GM's are required to work 10 hours (salaried) a day, five days a week and corporate has a 3 week rotating managers schedule that you are supposed to use. Hard to do when you don't have the employees to do it but try to explain that to the higher ups.
