    I worked at Party City part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free candy, no drug testing for hourly associates, good store discounts. Unless it's Halloween, you probably won't have a lot of work to do.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, low starting pay, low raises, difficult environment to succeed and advance in. If you're a cashier, expect to be running back and forth between the balloon counter and your register. I worked there for a year, and got a whopping ten cent raise to 7.60 an hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees are well paid employees. I know the minimum wage is still low in many states, but you don't have to remind us!

    I have been working at Party City for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very relaxed job, easy to get your foot in the door. They mostly only hire during Halloween for temporary and then keep a handful of people that showed potential.

    Cons

    Low pay. Everyone starts at minimum wage and when they give you a raise once a year its literally pennies. Last year my raise was .05 cents the year before that it was .11 cents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only store managers get salary. So if youre a Assistant Manager youll be paid hourly working 55 hours a week.
