I have been working at Party City full-time (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 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.

    I have been working at Party City full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay at store manager level.
    Advancement opportunity if you don't want to have a personal life.

    Cons

    Very task driven.
    Zero training for associates and very little more for management.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of managing the "processes", try working with the managers. Too quick to hire and fire associates and managers.

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

    Pros

    no pros that I found

    Cons

    Encountered several issues with this company, the main issue was with payroll. Employees would not receive pay, or they received incorrect amounts. Even my last paycheck was wrong. If a company can not even process payroll correctly, how can they expect employees to be loyal???
