I worked at Party City

Pros

work with awesome people
Discount
Gaining the experience to plan parties

Cons

A dislike of Balloons :D
The pay
Customers, that think they own you cause they're shopping there

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allocate hours to stores so that tasks could get finished at the time that corporate wants it done.
Allow some independence on the store level, DM's should not try to micromanage

    Retail (be prepared to deal with stupid people a lot)

    LOTS OF BALLOONS!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps lighten up on some policies regarding customers, I feel as though we tend to be too pushy trying to make them comfortable.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO
