Pros

You get a good discount when shopping for parties or during Halloween. I genuinely loved the team I worked with and had fun when I worked. There ALWAYS was something to do, which I liked.

Cons

A stated in the title, you put in a lot of work for little reward or compensation. At least where I worked as long as we did what we were told and didn't "rock the boat" we never got intensives to stay long. The motto seemed to be "train them cheep and ship them out fast when they start to complain." If you are in management then get ready for the store to be your life.

Advice to Management

I was part of management, it was the district management that seemed to be the problem. Each store seemed to be separate and had different standers and policies. We often got complaints from consumers that they were able to return an item that was non-returnable at another Party City and that we should be able to return the item too.

    Pros

    flexible hours, work with school schedule good starting pay get good hours to work per week

    Cons

    worked in same area learned nothing new a lot of work at times

    Advice to Management

    Have employees work everywhere, not just in one area. At times, the employees are over-worked and they should switch work areas, so that employees don't get tired.
