I have been working at Party City part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great discount, lot's of fun at work in a great environment. Room to provide great customer service to each individual customer.

Cons

No where near enough hours provided, difficult to move up in the company from base level. Customers expect you to literally plan their parties/showers for them.

    I worked at Party City full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fun, fresh product mix that was constantly changing as the seasons did. Halloween was always the premier time to be there.

    Cons

    Horrible payroll model. No encouragement for assistant to move up the ladder: crappy hours & no support from DM's, no promise of a bonus. Quality of life is affected when you cannot enjoy the very things you sell with your own family because your working.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to allowing your store managers to think creatively & abandon the "Just like picture" mentality.
