    I have been working at Party City full-time

    Pros

    Great employee benefits for tenured employees.
    Promotion of lower level manager positions, team leaders, Assistant Managers are usually conducted from with in.

    Cons

    No longer looking for a manager who can think and do what is necessary to help a store make money. They would like a cookie cutter manager who only does what is asked. No room for regional or local changes.
    If you are looking for growth into the upper level of management, District level or above, Party City does a very poor job of promoting from with-in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was a time when managers could make decisions to merchandise cretin product that would turn and generate revenue however now District Managers are so afraid of doing something that was not directed that they do not allow for any change in the layout even if one can show it will generate sales.
