Culture quickly changed my last two years from being inventive & friendly to a threat based management system.

I worked at Party City full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Fun, fresh product mix that was constantly changing as the seasons did. Halloween was always the premier time to be there.

Cons

Horrible payroll model. No encouragement for assistant to move up the ladder: crappy hours & no support from DM's, no promise of a bonus. Quality of life is affected when you cannot enjoy the very things you sell with your own family because your working.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to allowing your store managers to think creatively & abandon the "Just like picture" mentality.

    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 (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 worked at Party City part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    My co-workers were nice and fun to work with. It was also a simple job that involved customer service and running the register.

    Cons

    The store manager was not a very good leader. The manager also did not get along well with customers the majority of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't leave work early just because you can. Also don't provide any project to employees that you wouldn't/haven't done yourself.
