    Pros

    I was employed for Iparty for 18 years it was the best experience of my entire career. They really cared about the employees and listened to what they had to say. It was fun, hard work that paid off with gratitude. I will forever be thankful for my career there

    Cons

    Party City bought them out and it was a horrible transition. Party City should really evaluate their treatment if hard working dedicated employees!

    I have been working at iParty full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    An incredibly fun place to work!
    Sometimes stressful but bearable.

    Cons

    Most upper management was clueless, but also generally harmless.
    The ones that had any actual power really needed to sometimes just SHUT UP and listen to store personnel who actually knew what was going on!
