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

Pros

Some holidays off if you work for a franchise location, slow at Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Cons

No comp time, management made to work and additional 10-20 hours a week...often. Lack of corporate structure. If the area office of your franchise is run by tyrants, they can make your life miserable. Very redundant work routine...hard to achieve a sense of accomplishment. Unnecessary workload.

    Kind of fun, yet bad management.

    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.
