Easy job but, definitely not for somebody with bills to pay.

    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 Management

    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.

    I worked at Party City part-time (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.
