    Corporate Office Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockaway, NJ (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Party City (Rockaway, NJ (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online and a few weeks later an HR rep called with a few questions and then scheduled an in person interview for the following week.

    I went into corporate office and the hiring manager had a different idea of what the job entailed compared to the actual job description. She was brief, kept looking at her watch and didnt even try to understand my background before ushering me into the VP's office. He was even worse, asking unreasonable questions that also didnt pertain to the job.

    Not sure I'd want to work there even if I was offered a job.
