    I worked at Party City part-time

    Pros

    Enjoyed my coworkers. Enjoyed helping customers and going the extra mile.

    Cons

    Corporate gave deadlines for a lot of work but didn't provide enough time or budget to hire more people to get it done. There was usually only one associate at registers at a time.

    I worked at Party City part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The shop environment overall is pretty fun. It's cool being around party supplies and the inventory is always changing so there's always new fun things around. The other employees were very nice and helpful to me, I rarely had any kinds of issues with my coworkers.

    Cons

    The cons I have are mostly to do with the customers, who are often quite rude. That's pretty standard for retail, so take that with a grain of salt. Additionally, the managers are not always amazing, and there's never enough people employed in the store. You're always expected to do the work of 2 or 3 or MORE people because there isn't enough employees in the store.
