I have been working at Party City full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – Fast-paced retail perfect for those who enjoy no down time. Ownership model provides opportunities for those to take pride In their accomplishments.
Cons – Halloween season provides several challenges that can be overwhelming for some and has been notorious for creating a high turn over ratio for the company.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Party City full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Lots of seasonal changes to give you variety in the work. Stays busy all the time. Overall it's a very easy job.
Cons – Don't get much chance to get promoted. Very little if any development. Pay is below average. There is very little opportunity to manage anything outside of the Halloween season, mostly you are doing most of the work yourself ie. stocking, cashiering, zoning, etc.
Advice to Senior Management – If you wonder why you have no bench of people to fill open positions, take a look at the lack of development going on in the company. If you don't allocate resources to it, it won't happen.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Party City
Pros – work with awesome people
Gaining the experience to plan parties
Cons – A dislike of Balloons :D
Customers, that think they own you cause they're shopping there
Advice to Senior Management – Allocate hours to stores so that tasks could get finished at the time that corporate wants it done.
Allow some independence on the store level, DM's should not try to micromanage
