    Pros

    Party city cashier in my opinion is perfect for high schoolers. I worked there 3 years. It’s very easy and super flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    I’ve seen a fair share of terrible assistant managers come and go through the store I worked at. I honestly don’t know how some of them were promoted to manager.. very unprofessional that’s even coming from a then high schooler

    Advice to Management

    Stay professional, don’t bring your life drama in to work and stop playing favorites!
