Unemployed? Party City hiring thousands for Halloween season
Party City Holdings Inc., which operates dozens of stores in Los Angeles and Orange counties, announced that it plans to hire 14,000 seasonal workers to staff its stores during the busy Halloween shopping season.
The party-goods store operator said Thursday that the average Party City store would be hiring 15 to 50 seasonal employees to help customers as they shop for costumes and other Halloween party supplies, the Associated Press reported.
The privately held retailer said it would be hiring cashiers, stockroom workers and sales-floor associates. Employees may have the opportunity to continue working past Halloween based on staffing needs at individual stores, company President Lisa Laube said.
