I had a lot of fun working there they were very kind it was a fast paced job and I loved working with the customers finding the decor they wanted and helping the kids pick the right costume for Halloween I love working with the costumers because I can connect very quickly with them I am very friendly and outgoing
Long lunches and very good pay
The time frame I was working the hours were very long and back to back but I still loved it
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Batavia, IL – May 10, 2018
This company is taking a turn of the worse. There is no room to grow, they don't pay enough for the job they want done. Most people in corporate are coming from Toys R Us and you can feel the change within the company, you know it's bad when other managers tell you get out as fast as you can.
A typical day consisted of restocking shelves, filling party orders, cashier and customer service. I learned a great deal about good quality customer service. My management was great for the time I was working there, they were very understanding as I was taking classes as well as working. My team members were great company and helped to keep the place in working order. Halloween had to be the toughest time of my job working there. there are a lot of people who want last minute costumes for Halloween, they taught me to be more organised. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to help customers find what they want to celebrate with friends and family.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Wayne, NJ – May 8, 2018
Productive place to work, management is okay but have personal issues. Need uniforms for workers. People are ok to work with, however supervision can be very bias in certain situations. You learn a lot about criminal behavior if criminal justice is a career you are seeking. The hardiest part of the job is some days you are over work due to staff not being available.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 7, 2018
This was my very first job and it taught me so many things! I learned how to provide excellent customer service, how to work a cash register, and other basic work requirements. It was fun helping people make decoration plans for different occasions.
STORE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – May 7, 2018
I worked there during Halloween and had fun in the fast-paced environment. My coworkers were nice, I had a lovely time working there. I really enjoyed working as a cashier, and I was a bit sad when I had to quit due to school.
Associate (Current Employee) – Staten Island, NY – May 7, 2018
Good job to have if your are balancing school and home life. Work environment is great but hours are very limited and that stops anyone from making a living. Also the associates are limited to what they can do on the registers and that keeps the line from moving and inconvenient for everyone. Especially when the cashiers get the backlash of it.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 5, 2018
No work life balance, No raises, no benefits, no advancement. They just want you to work all day. Short lunch breaks, sometimes none. No 15 minute breaks allowed. Don't even think about calling out sick,
short break, no 15 minute break, no benefits, no work/life balance. They want your body and soul
I did temporary work here at party city was a fun place to work although you were on your feet and very busy its a place you can stat busy in from working the registers, front floor helping customers or organizing the shelves is hard work.
