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.
lots of work to be done but little bit of hours. there be so much work but only have two employees and one manager. days like that work can not always be done because you still have to help customers in be between.
A typical work day was very productive. I learned how to communicate with customers. My co-workers were very friendly and enjoyable. The hardest part of my job is having to be on my feet all day. The most enjoyable part is the people i work with.

Normally during Halloween season party stores are swamped with customers looking for different things. One day I'd be stocking shelves and hanging up props, other days I'd help customers look for costumes either for themselves or their children. I learned how to think on my feet and work at a fast place, assisting more than one customer at a time. Management was really fun and sometimes even brought in food for the employees out of their own pocket. The co-workers were, at first hard to understand and warm up to, but eventually after getting on the same page we came to an understanding. Being on your feet all day isn't for most people, but as long as you keep yourself busy the day will go by faster.
Part-Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – May 11, 2016
I learned how to make balloon bouquets, work a cash register, inventory items, and great customer service skills. The managers were really understanding about many of things and were always willing to help if you didn't know. My co-workers always kept a smile on my face because there was never a dull moment. The hardest part of the job was during Halloween season the store would be packed with customers wanting to get costumes. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the great people I worked around and the team that we build because we got so close.
Sales Floor/ Balloon Counter/ Register (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 10, 2016
Not a bad career choice but not the best. Had a tendency to become bored at work due lack of business during certain seasonal periods such as the spring and summer which led to being sent home early some days.
Store Associate (Former Employee) – Solon, OH – May 10, 2016
Working at Party City was very enjoyable. The main objective in my position was to help customers find everything that they might need for a perfect party (i.e. help find decorations or activities we had in store). I was able to improve my interpersonal skills and customer service skills. The management at the store I worked at was wonderful. They always made sure that the employees knew what they were doing and were always there when you needed them. I liked everyone I worked with, managers and other store associates. One of our managers threw a Christmas party for everyone who worked in our store. The hardest part of my job was having to deal with rude customers, but at the same time, the most enjoyable was seeing the satisfaction on the faces of a happy customer who I helped.
Team Lead (Former Employee) – Morgan Hill, CA – May 9, 2016
When youre sitting there putting your items on pegs, and a family comes in and one of the kids birthday is coming up and they're in the isle deciding what theme she wants for her birthday, just seeing that look on that kids face how happy something like that can make them, is honestly the best part of the job. And as long as their children are happy, their parents are happy also .
Meet new people, see different cultures
Feel like the company doesn't care about their employees
* i have learned how to conduct business better * my co workers are great and make the day go by smoother * the are no hard parts about the job * i have never had better managers * i think the best part of the job is seeing all the happy children leave
