Pros

The best reasons would be for the people and the environment. Youre taught well, and its an okay job.

Cons

Hardly any improvement to move up in the company, not good pay, sucky hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't make decisions on things you don't know.

    I have been working at Party City full-time

    Pros

    Whats good? Employee discount is 30%.
    You get good experience with setting planograms with constant changes every season

    Cons

    Whats bad? 47.5 hours per week. Working weekends. Lack of payroll hours and unattainable expectations with those hours.( I know... thats retail!) Lack of care or concern about employees or understanding of specific store issues. Management acts like every store is a cookie cutter store and there are no unique situations. Zero respect for store management and store personnel from anyone in corporate or DM level and above. It takes DAYS and sometimes weeks to get answers to basic store questions and even with personal HR related questions. Lots of chiefs but very few true leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management: DM's and above- Understand your management and employees better. Being a dictator with very little advice or knowledge sharing is terrible for morale. Constantly threatening management with termination instead of getting to the heart of the real issues makes everyone uncomfortable.

    To corporate: ANSWER OUR EMAILS! Takes too long to hear back from you. Stop pushing it back on us for more info. I dont have time during the day to be in the office answering emails to questions that you should be able to get the answer and solve my problem.

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

    Pros

    Work/life balance, fair compensation, training, development opportunities, and strong senior leadership.

    Cons

    Minority of retail chain is franchised. In general, these locations are not operated as well as the corporate stores. This impairs the brand image.
