    I worked at Party City part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You make people day, you let them leave with what they came for or something similar , dressing up in costumes , watching the customers have fun finding their party items

    Cons

    Never had any problems at all , I was there such short period but it was fun.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work !
