Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – December 4, 2014
On a typical day at work I would begin at the balloon counter, which would always be busy during the day, taking orders from costumers both on phone and in store. Then in the afternoon I would be a floor salesmen and would frequently check my work area for organization and cleanness. My co-workers were all very pleasant to be around. The hardest part of the job was to stock up all the merchandise with ladders because of frequent relocation of the ladder. I most enjoyed interacting with the costumers.

My experience with party city was exciting and wild at the same time. When working in a environment like party city during Halloween is very exciting you get to pick out the customers costumes but the work have to be quick. The management was very strict so we couldn't enjoy the costumes like we wanted too. My overall experience was fun and I really enjoyed it.

Maintained an exceptionally organized sales floor. Provided exceptional customer service. Checked customers out promptly and efficiently using simple mathematics. Would go “The extra mile” to drive sales.
This is about my 9th working at that place and I feel as if that I haven't work that much because I was off for almost a month. The only thing that they need to change the hours that is being needed for the employees.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Mandeville, LA – May 13, 2017
The work staff we nice people that like to communicate with each other. The work environment seemed to be in disarray most of the time. Which could be due to the items on the shelf being oddly arranged or misplaced by costumers. The building needed regular maintenance on its A/C units which slowed work during the summer since the store was not well ventilated. The other issue was the management (which has changed after I left) since they allowed many employees to be either slow or messy with their work.
This job was great for me while in highschool, despite the laid back non busy work environment it was a great job that I recommend to those in need of one. They were very flexible with hours and shift pick ups.
I worked during the Halloween season which became quite hectic, but the work was not hard and customers were usually pleasant. Managers were not laissez faire, which is good, and they were not too bossy either.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Conyers, GA – May 13, 2017
I would recommend Party City as a start off job. I say this because when I worked there in the beginning it was ok and easy to do. Towards the end of me working there everything spiraled out of control. I wouldn't recommend this job for someone to go to for a serious career job. Not to mention I had an accident to where I was on crutches and couldn't work ...they fired me without me knowing.

normally a fun day creating great party ideas for guests. However since change at corporate store associates are being asked to do more for less. Hopefully the company will survive for current associates.
its an ok place to work. no hours off season only get hours during Halloween/Christmas seasons not a good place to work for if you are looking to grow in the company just a temporary job until you find something better
