Don't Party in Party City

difficult bosses. Difficult work load. You can only work for the pay as the environment is super difficult. no wonder everyone leaves every year after halloween hours are done.

get a second job with this one!
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB3 May 2017
Horrible, no benefits if your parttime, horrible benefits if your even full time. no chance for career advancement. Sometimes your left with two people on a busy sunday afternoon to work the tills. Horrible cashier technology to work with. depending on where you work the workers are always straped for hours. Unless you have another retail job on the side you will not make ends meet. Especially with fluctuating hours that are not at all reliable. I overall had horrible work experiences working there. The most enjoyabe part was blowing up balloons.
Pros
customer interactions
Cons
not enough hours. no benefits, no chance to advance

Fun Place To Work
Sale Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 April 2017
Party City is a fun place to work, and a very friendly environment

A typical day of work includes working with balloons helping customers plan and organize parties
I learned a lot of different things about balloons and I have become more creative in thinking .
The culture within party city is that everyone is for everyone, and we help each other out in order to make all of us successful as a team and not just one person.

Customer service (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON25 March 2017
Party City was an alright place to work. It got pretty busy during the Halloween season but was manageable. The store required of me to find costumes, clean shelves of merchandise and help people with finding things that they need.

Minimum wage job. Hours when they are busy but the rest of the year nothing. No real opportunities for advancement. Maybe more responsibilities but no increase in pay.

Growing Pains
Market Trainer/General Manager (Current Employee) –  Ontario31 January 2017
The company is in a large state of growth and with that they seem to have found it hard to implement a good training strategy to build effective management. They run on an "old school" upper management style which does not work well with today's day and age.
The business is ever changing and there is always something to do which is keeps the work day rewarding. It is faced paced and sometimes a hard environment to keep adapting to.
Pros
fast paced environment and busy
Cons
poor training and not room for adavacement
