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

Pros

Really bad pay with a great discount on junk.

Cons

Worked to the bone for the least amount of pay they can get away with giving you. Horrible yearly raises. Mean clientele and corporate has no idea what they are doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your workers. Corporate hire someone with a brain to run your business. For the love of god stop doing meaningless resets and remodels every six months they are nothing but a waist of time and money.

    I worked at Party City full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Wish I could say there are pros, but there are none.

    Cons

    Just a horrible place, run by total incompetence. Your expected to work 12 or more hours a day, and at night from home whenever needed. (which is most of the time). Yearly increase is 1-2 percent. All management that I worked for were total idiots. HR dept is probably the worse I've ever seen. They tell you everything you want to hear to get you in the door, and never come through on any of it. I've never seen as many people so eager to leave an employer. Just a very depressing place to work. I don't see Party City doing well in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your employees. Also, upper management needs to be held accountable for their actions. They throw everyone else under the bus.
