I have been working at The Party Staff part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great opportunity to get introduced to the profession

Cons

It is all temporary. Many "last minute" opportunities when you have already fixed you schedule. Few opportunities more than a day lead time. It is "secure" but is a dead-end situation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More "temp to hire" opportunities. More catering gigs. More jobs with advance notice (at least a couple of days).

    Pros

    Can be flexible hours. Diverse events

    Cons

    No direct deposit for payroll. Must pick up checks weekly. Once employee commits to a booked event & date, management can change event time, location, duties many times before that date arrives. When this occurs several times a month, it gets confusing and frustrating trying to plan your own life around. You may have committed to 5 events @ 8 hrs per, but now you have 5 events @ 4.5 hrs per. No one can live on that at avg $10.00 hr.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should negotiate more travel pay from clients. Offer satellite locations so employees don't need to travel so far. When jobs are in SFO area don't rely on San Jose to cover. SFO staff make more money but they turn down jobs they know are less desirable. Our employees need a labor union.
