Very poor efficiency model. Frustrating time management model. Expect the world of you for minimum wage

I have been working at Party City part-time for less than a year

Pros

If you like the merchandise you do receive a fairly generous discount of 30%.

Cons

The pay is not only bad, but a bump up to Team Leader (keyholder) is a negligible .15 cent increase.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take your personal grudges elsewhere, district manager is unwilling to terminate general managers with dubious track records. You know when the turnaround rate on your management is every two months then something must be seriously amiss.:

    I have been working at Party City full-time

    Pros

    Some co-workers - very hard working, passionate people.
    Wellness program.

    Cons

    HR Dept - helpless-puppets of upper management. Over promise and under deliver.
    Upper Management - does not manage, they "lord over". Do not know their employees. Do not know how to create a positive working environment. They do not replace employees when they leave, expect inexperienced people to do the job of someone with many more years experience. Do not pay or title anyone for the job they are expected to do. Play favorites among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! You are running this company into the ground! Why do you think quality people are leaving?

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

    Pros

    Halloween is the greatest time of the year for me, even since everyday is extremely fast paced. Helping customers plan a party or event is very fun and interesting and gives you opportunities to be creative.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, horrible pay, and you get treated horrible. They pay newcomers more than the people that work there and treat them better than people that have been there for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your sales associates, treat them well, and bump them up to at least the newcomers wages. It's not fair to have to train someone that gets paid more than you for the same job. Plus, if you keep treating the face of your company like that it's going to bite you in the ass.
