I worked at Party City part-time (less than an 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.

    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.
