A fun weekend job, but boring and not dependable.

I worked at Party City

Pros

Great employee discount, fun atmosphere, fair pay, reasonable operating hours, fairly laid back about appearance (they allow some piercings and tattoos, uniform is simple)

Cons

(In my experience) I only worked a few hours per week, and although I was hired as seasonal, I was told I would be kept for full time and then very suddenly they changed their minds. It was also very monotonous, as there is generally not heavy customer traffic so most of your day is spent restocking or "straightening".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to add more full-time positions, and communicate better with employees.

    I have been working at Party City part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing you do on a day to day basis is difficult.

    Cons

    1.) The pay is total crap for the amount of work they make you do.
    2.) HR department doesn't care if you have a problem.
    3.) Opportunities to advance in this company, simply don't exist.
    4.) NO background checks done when hiring.

    Basically they just suck a person dry for all the talent they have for as little as they want to pay them.i suppose if you get a job with these guys as an EAM, or GM the pay makes it worth your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1.) Start paying the people who do all your work more
    2.) Background checks. A simple google search of a person will let you know if they're lying on their application
    3.) Treat ALL your employees respectfully and as if you appreciate them, rather than blatantly displaying the fact you don't.

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

    Pros

    Great team. Closing shifts out by 9:30. Flexible Schedule and Great Vacation. Easy job!

    Cons

    Money. Very cheap company who will utilize your every skill and not compensate for it. No payroll so you"re doing all the work. This is an easy job and isn't stressful at all except for halloween, but they will NOT pay you for what you"re worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DM's need to recognize the needs of the store, which is more payroll and they need to pay their managers their worth if they want them to have a successful store,and stay. Lots of turnover due to lack of pay. Plain and simple.
