Current Employee - Store Manager in Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Store Manager in Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Party City full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Decent pay at store manager level.
Advancement opportunity if you don't want to have a personal life.

Cons

Very task driven.
Zero training for associates and very little more for management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of managing the "processes", try working with the managers. Too quick to hire and fire associates and managers.

    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.
