Great experience for developing basic skills needed to survive in the workplace.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONDecember 18, 2015
Pros: Discount is beneficial if you like to host parties.
Cons: The store is mostly busy around Halloween time, meaning if you're looking for a stable position, shifts and opportunity are limited.
This company is great for developing customer service skills as it is very involved with the customers. You also get the chance to learn the basics of being a cashier/front-line worker. Lastly, this company also teaches you how to maintain and manage inventory and stock.

A Big Company trying to Run like a Small Company
Manager (Current Employee), canadaNovember 24, 2015
Pros: flexibility of Schedule
Cons: too many
This is a multi billion dollar company that tends to do things 3x. It is being run and micro managed like a small company. They pretend to listen to their employees but don't really. There are promises of things to come in compenation but deliverables to date. the demands are not like anything else in retail and the top leaders have lost focus on what it is like to run a store and the challenges that happen.

Party City Macleod SE Location Job Review
Sales associate (Former Employee), Calgary, ABAugust 24, 2015
Pros: Fun job for the most part.
Cons: No receiving dock for shippments, last minute schedules.
Party city was a fun work environment, however the management team was disrespectful at times, disorganized, and irresponsible. They don't know how to run a proper team, they may be one of the best stores right now but without the loyalty of the sales associates the store would fall apart.

My job here was seasonal for the month of October, it was actually kind of slow paced because all i was doing was walking down the isle and watching people if they steal or if anything out of place.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONMay 12, 2015
Pros: Discounts on costumes
Cons: Long hours standing
A typical day would including stocking and organizing shelfs. Have being hired a seasonal position at halloween there were many people searching for costumes so I would be in charge of the costume wall and locating costumes of their choice.

Many things that I learned while working at Party City is that it's crucial to work as a team because there are so many individual tasks as a group that benefit everyone in the end when everything is running smooth and calm.

Management was helpful and very involved. They always jumped in when you needed help and knew what tasks fit well with each employee.

The hardest part of the job was when I was put on the costume wall by myself and the store was very busy, but I worked through it and organized everyones costume orders and called another co-worker to help me out, and in the end everything was running smoothly.

They most enjoyable part of the job was helping customers find exactly what they needed and making sure they leave satisfied and happy, knowing they have a store they can rely on for all of their party needs.
