I have been working at Party City full-time (less than an year)

Pros

This company is very respectful of its associates and customers. It knows that customers are its bottom line. Integrity is important.

Cons

Lots of hard work, but that's retail! The hours can be grueling at times. Lots of ladder work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to upper management: less micro-managing and more input of associate ideas; incentives.

    I have been working at Party City full-time

    Pros

    The merchandise is fun, pretty easy stuff to do, not very complex tasks. You have an opportunity to learn a lot about retail. Vacation time is nice.

    Cons

    Pay is embarrassingly low. Even as a manager there is a lot of physical labor including unloading trucks, packing out merchandise, and even cleaning the bathroom. RMs and DMs walk your store to find a "gotcha", but will never recognize the positive. You will not have a social life because you will be married to your store. You will be there for way over 50 hours a week and all weekend long. Promotions are based on who you know and have nothing to do with actual skill or knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people.

    I have been working at Party City

    Pros

    Most of the people working there are fun and good people to be around and work with.

    Cons

    Absolutely terrible pay. Zero room for advancement into a management position without waiting for 5 years. You can absolutely bust your back doing work every day or you can do little to no work and at the end of the year your still only going to get a 25 cent raise max. Almost all of the customers are rude and disrespectful. And you are expected as a full time position or manager to accomplish far more than is possible in a given day with far to little compensation. Don't plan on working here for very long because you'll be miserable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to reward people for hard work. Learn to actually train people. Learn to actually do work instead of sitting around talking all day.
