I worked at Party City

Pros

they give you basic knowledge for working in a retail environment.
and its a fun and fast moving work place.

Cons

seasonal positions dont give you enough work history to get you a better job.
the manager made me feel like it was a bad thing to ask questions as i was learning where everything went.

    I have been working at Party City

    Pros

    General fun woking environment with a lot of young, dynamic people. Executive level Presidents & CEO are exceptional at what they do and how they conduct business.

    Cons

    Executives are so good that they rarely consider any other point of view and give little or no autonomy to mid-level executives (VP's & Directors) to make decisions on their own. Micro-managing is an understatement here, so if you have a voice about an issue, keep it to yourself if you want to keep your job.

    I worked at Party City

    Pros

    I was a student and they were great with flexible hours and days off. Very easy to adjust to and learn.

    Cons

    I worked with a great team of people but things would easily became personal, instead of professional. Raises are only every year and working there for three years, I was only given a raise of $1.25.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drama should be left at the doors before starting the work day.
