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

Pros

I received excellent compensation and was able to earn a healthy bonus. Decent benefits and they have learned how to run a busy Halloween season.

Cons

Change in Upper Management has caused turmoil. Open hostility between vice president and regional people made things uncomfortable. Had a very hard time finding people who wanted to be promoted into this mess. They have also shifted towards having salaried employees do less supervisory work, something they've been successfully sued for in the past.

Advice to Management

Change your upper management people if you are not comfortable with them. Keep politics out of the stores

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

    Pros

    Free candy, no drug testing for hourly associates, good store discounts. Unless it's Halloween, you probably won't have a lot of work to do.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, low starting pay, low raises, difficult environment to succeed and advance in. If you're a cashier, expect to be running back and forth between the balloon counter and your register. I worked there for a year, and got a whopping ten cent raise to 7.60 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees are well paid employees. I know the minimum wage is still low in many states, but you don't have to remind us!


  2. "Nice friendly co-workers and supervisors, even in the customer chaos the Management was always solid and willing to help"
