I have been working at Party City full-time (More than a year)

Pros

.Easier than most management retail jobs .No blackouts during holiday season(thanksgiving/Christmas .Good schedule if you work at a good store

Cons

.Every store is different,worked at a great store for a year and loved the job! Got transferred with two days notice and wow a big difference.Work schedule is different,and so is the atmosphere .Six day work week from mid Sept-End of Oct .Average pay for management,and no bonuses unless you are a GM .Most stores have very minimal payroll

Advice to Management

.Better prep for seasonal sets,and better communication .Give incentives(bonuses) to the hard working managers,such as team leaders and assistant managers

    I have been working at Party City full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company's saving grace is the people working for it. They are passionate, dedicated and wonderful to work with. The office culture is fun and everybody does their part to make it through the day.

    Cons

    The company lacks leadership and vision. Sadly, it is infected by a severe case of micromanagement--departments are crippled to a halt waiting for upper management's review/approvals.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Show appreciation for their hard work and commitment to the brand. Respect processes and deadlines.
