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

    Pros

    Coworkers were friendly. Tasks required were not difficult. Good place to get initial work experience, so you can leave and go somewhere better.

    Cons

    Boring. Low Pay. ALWAYS understaffed, and management would yell at you when you couldn't clear a line of 30 people checking out, AND blow up 50 balloons at the same time. Then they would get mad when you ask for help, and then get mad when you didnt ask for help. lose-lose

    Advice to Management
