I worked at Party City

Pros

wants to be fun/ active
fitness center
monthly events
balanced work/life
developing more formal talent development procedures

Cons

just thrown into roles/ unclear expectations
office parties can be dull and segregated
no real feedback given
no clear line of promotion/opportunities
not that diverse

Advice to ManagementAdvice

every employee should be engaged in the HR changes and directives. upper management has to support that. also employees want feedback, direction, and clear growth paths. take more risks with the activities and culture creation as well.

Recommends
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Party City

    Pros

    thirty per cent employee discount

    Cons

    Cranky coworkers. I was hired for halloween as a cashier, I had 2 years experience, and they never register trained me. Just had me roam the Halloween aisles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hire people wwho are going to enjoy their jobs, because all of the people that I met in the two months I worked there, seemed to hate their jobs.

    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

    Disapproves of CEO
