    Good company, basic job

    Balloons Specialist (Former Employee) Lawrence, KS

    ProsBalloons! fun to see kids happy, lots of cartoon characters for the kiddos. Lot of mindless restocking, but to some (like me) this is a pro and not a con.

    ConsBalloons :( not fun to see adults unhappy. People get freaking stressed when on the way to their parties. Sometimes customers are not a joy to deal with.

    Advice to Senior Managementgood job, pay cashiers more money

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Basic Retail Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsFun to help people pick out themes or organisation for parties/weddings. You could exercise a modicum of creativity in making balloon bouquets.

    ConsBasic retail working environment: work was generally boring, you had to deal with many persons, often not all that happy, management generally just told you what to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop making so many arbitrary changes to the layout/design of the store. It simply seems unneccessary and is stressful to employees.

    Party America was a great place to work up until it was bought out by Party City.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Alameda, CA

    ProsNice people and a festive environment.
    Cool samples for parties available to staff.
    Top management very competent and sensitive to employee needs.
    (All before Party City took over)

    ConsWith the acquisition of Party America by Party City, the festive mood changed. The company dropped from around 100 employees to about 15-20, and the party "chief," Marty Allen was one of those who left.
    With those changes it was hard to keep the same environment.
    Also, pay was relatively low compared to the same job performed in other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is hard to offer advice to the people who stayed on, in terms of bringing back the mood that was there before... the people who created the environment need to be there.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
