Current Employee - Executive Assistant Manager in Los Angeles, CA
Current Employee - Executive Assistant Manager in Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Party City full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of seasonal changes to give you variety in the work. Stays busy all the time. Overall it's a very easy job.

Cons

Don't get much chance to get promoted. Very little if any development. Pay is below average. There is very little opportunity to manage anything outside of the Halloween season, mostly you are doing most of the work yourself ie. stocking, cashiering, zoning, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you wonder why you have no bench of people to fill open positions, take a look at the lack of development going on in the company. If you don't allocate resources to it, it won't happen.

    Pros

    no pros that I found

    Cons

    Encountered several issues with this company, the main issue was with payroll. Employees would not receive pay, or they received incorrect amounts. Even my last paycheck was wrong. If a company can not even process payroll correctly, how can they expect employees to be loyal???

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

    Pros

    Good company, competitive salaries, easy work, fun-spirited job and good for a first job.

    Cons

    Worst hours, not flexible, rude customers, rude managers,and bad service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Don't pretend like you like someone and you're going to keep them and then you let them go. At least have the decency to call someone and let them know they no longer have a job.
    - Don't show inconsistencies in your managerial skills (treat one person one way and the next different).\
    - Don't reprimand your employees for going the extra mile to help a customer, you should encourage great customer service because a lot of people come in complaining about not being helped.
    - Don't treat your employees who are working temporarily differently as if they don't matter because they're seasonal
    - Don't train your team one way and then expect them to act another way
