I worked at Party City part-time for more than a year

Pros

I had an enjoyable time working at Party City. It is an easy job especially while attending school (I worked there a few years in High School. It the time it was a fun working environment and I thoroughly enjoyed the people I worked with, many of whom I still stay in contact with many, many years later. There was always something to do even if it was just menial tasks. Many conversations still start out with "when I worked at Party City..."

Cons

At the time I'm sure I didn't think it was all that great, but looking back on it there weren't that many cons to the experience for someone in their teens. The downfalls I can think of now is the lack of clear structure from management. And the lack of growth. But considering I was still in High School I can understand why.

    I have been working at Party City full-time for 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.

    I worked at Party City full-time for less than a year

    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???
