Pros: work with your schedule
Cons: not much room for advancement
The typical day includes working freight, providing quality customer service, and janitorial duties such as: sweeping, taking out the trash, cleaning the bathrooms, and occasional vacuuming. I've learned how to provide the quality customer service, work freight quickly and efficiently, how to train a new employee, and how set planograms. Though I don't always agree with how management decides to do things, I always do as I'm told and if I think of a better idea, I'll pitch that to them in private. I love all of my co-workers because each individual has a different set of skills to bring to the job and different personalities that make party city a wonderful environment. The hardest part of the job is that it's so fast-paced on holidays, so if I'm sick, keeping up can be challenge. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I accomplish difficult tasks, such as working a lot of frieght in a short amount of time or helping a customer find what they are looking for even if we don't have that specific item (i.e. a costume that they wanted and instead, finding parts from a bunch of different costumes that work to make something better).
