Cons: small team, low paying job, elementary
Party City is one of the most fun and colorful jobs I've ever worked with. The management is full of very enthusiastic people, the coworkers were a bit too young to truly enjoy the fun of the job, and the items we sold were very very fun and joyful!
A day at work went as such:
Everyday, I would get into work about 5 min. early, clock in, then start – more... on recovery of the store. The work was very easy, and while the pay was minimal, the single priority work that was expected of you proved that the pay wasn't that bad.
If we closed, we never stayed for more than 40 minutes afterwards. When I opened, I would have to come in early to clean the store. That part was easy, since all you had to do was dump trash and sweep the store. I also got to listen to my own music then.
When work ended, that was that. I had all the time in the world to hang out with my friends, get together with family, and do whatever I wanted. When the holidays came around, the work hardly got worse. It was extremely steady at all times. My paychecks only got bigger the longer I worked there.
Don't get me wrong, there were some bad times, but they rarely existed. The store was just small enough to not cause too much drama.
In all, it was a fun job to work at. I did learn a lot about their products, their management, and their systems. Oh yeah, and the balloons were fun too! – less
