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

Pros

I worked here when I was still in school and really enjoyed it. Coworkers were nice. I enjoyed helping customers select items for parties and events.

Cons

It can go from being super busy (Halloween) to being dead (most other holidays.) The pay is not great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Considering raising pay to keep good employees.

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

    Pros

    It's easy work and it isn't hard to learn. Plenty of time to talk to your coworkers when its slow. Colorful store environment. Great discount.

    Cons

    Management can be rough when distributing hours... there were weeks where I only got scheduled for 3 hours, which ultimately lead to my leaving. Halloween time is absolute hell... store is trashed and it takes forever to clean it, lines out the door, management is frazzled, hours are long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in some loss prevention and don't schedule people for one 3 hour shift a week!

    I have been working at Party City full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I received excellent compensation and was able to earn a healthy bonus. Decent benefits and they have learned how to run a busy Halloween season.

    Cons

    Change in Upper Management has caused turmoil. Open hostility between vice president and regional people made things uncomfortable. Had a very hard time finding people who wanted to be promoted into this mess. They have also shifted towards having salaried employees do less supervisory work, something they've been successfully sued for in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your upper management people if you are not comfortable with them. Keep politics out of the stores
