    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Fun, easy going co-workers. Managers were flexible at the store I worked at. Gave you tasks based on your talents/skills. Halloween season gave opportunities for special effects makeup and creative ideas.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Underpaid. Store did not have full inventory. Not enough scheduled hours for a decent pay check. I was basically "full time," but never got those hours. More communication to store managers, and employees.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Party City.

    Interview

    I went in to work for them via "OCearns.' They set up the interview. OCearns collected information on how the interview went. Initial feedback was that the employer was not honest.
