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

    Pros

    If you need money and can't stand working in fast food, Party City can be a viable alternative. That said, it is incredibly easy working there when it isn't Halloween season.

    Cons

    Halloween season is completely awful. It is stressful due to crowds of selfish and frustrated parents demanding costumes for their kids, the store becomes a mess, and everyone's tensions start to flare. Co-workers became uncooperative during these times as they all had their own worries and couldn't bother helping you. Those that were able evidently didn't want to help you by flaring their nostrils and creasing their eyebrows, giving you "the look" as they release a heaving sigh. It was a very tiring job trying to keep the store in proper order with that huge amount of negative people and you will be compensated with minimum wage while you do it.

    Advice to Management

    Have some compassion for your lowly workers and prepare them better. There wasn't enough leadership from management. The location I worked at had many unlikable managers who were clearly employed there during high school and stayed there ever since. Orders are given along with foul moods and they are rarely ever friendly.


  2. "Unorganized, and use temps for grunt work."

    I have been working at Party City as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed, casual work attire, not micromanaged.

    Cons

    If you are hired as a temp, then you're not treated with much respect. I continually ask for more and more work, yet I am given menial tasks to complete that even a middle school kid could do. Not much room for advancement. They go thru temp employees like crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Invest time in your temps. Most of them are actually quality employees that are waiting to be given a chance and to actually be hired!
