    I worked at Party City part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers, fun working environment, and got to wear costumes on the job! Of any job ive had before, this is the most fun ive had working.

    Cons

    I only wish I was able to stay employed there after halloween was up! Another thing is that communication isnt fantastic. I found myself stumbling the first few days not knowing what to do even after asking for clarifications. The manager was kinda grumpy and rarely smiled. She wasnt rude-- but it was just a bit offputting. The staff break room is kinda dinky, but it wasnt horrible. All the cons were very minor though honestly.

    Advice to Management

    Smile!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Party City (Toronto, ON) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Consisted of two interviews. First with the store manager and assistant store manager and the second with the district manager. The interview functioned like a reverse interview, where I was asking the questions. It felt more like a conversation (the interviewers did not take notes) which was a refreshing change of pace.
