    Worst place to start a Management Carreer.

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Beavercreek, OH

    ProsDiscount was ok but you cant buy clearance items.

    ConsCorporate has yet to figure out a balance in operation. This company has over 200 stores and runs as if its a small chain. Wastes alot of money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop all the gossip and do your job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Naperville, IL

    ProsGreatest people ever! Great team. Great business. Sad to see it all end. So much more to accomplish... Hope everyone lands on their feet.

    ConsBeing purchased by a manufacture that did not find value in what we all worked so hard to accomplish sad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThank you for your contributions over the years. You have made us proud to be a part of the team in the good times and bad.

    The worst place to work anywhere.

    Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsNone. Nothing at all. well, did meet one District Manager that actually knew what he was talking about....of course, he came to the company from Party America.

    ConsBonus structure was horrible...never enough payroll to properly run a store. Associates were not paid enough so it was impossible to get good associates on staff. The information from the home office was contradictory and often misleading. The shipments from the warehouse were always messed up. They like to hire store managers from outside the company and pay them more than what they were willing to pay the assistants that they promoted. Too much dead weight holding store manager postions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe happy that Amscan bought you out.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor compensation, Terrible Schedule

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsBusy work environment that kept the job from getting boring. Balloon bouquet creations were fun. Variety of job responsiblities. Co-workers were fun to work with.

    ConsTerrible schedule. I probably got off a total of 6 weekends per year, had to work every other Saturday and Friday night. Was the "new" manager and was forced to work more nights and weekends than the other AM and SM, this lasted the 2 years I worked there. Low starting pay for AM, $11.25 per hour and got a .30 raise after a year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be rotational schedule for management that is required and the DM should make sure this is being implemented.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
