Cashier and 3rd Key Holder (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLFebruary 13, 2019
The work environment was very well put together, but you were seasonal. Also management worked with your schedule, and gave you the days off you requested.

Productive
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Boardman, OHJanuary 24, 2019
Phantom Fireworks is not a place for the lazy. During the firework season, the store is filled with customers. There is never a time where you will be bored. The management staff is friendly and will help and train you anytime if you have questions. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the constant rush of customers and keeping the showroom and warehouse neat, organized, and stocked with product.

Fun workplace
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Matamoras, PAFebruary 1, 2019
Before the week of the fourth of July, it was a very slow and easy job, with few customers. During the 1-4 of July the place was a mad house and a fast paced work environment.
Pros
free lunches and dinner during 1-4
Cons
8am-1am shifts 1-4 of july

Do not work here
Order Puller (Former Employee) –  Warren, OHDecember 10, 2018
During the busy season you are expected to work 10 to 12 hours a day of more every day of the week. Management is known for giving empty promises just to keep people through the fourth of July. When you start your shift there I no telling when your shift will end, we have worked from 8:30 in the morning until 1:00 the next morning and you are expected to be back at 8:30, this can last the entire last week before the fourth.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, poor management

Good Seasonal Work.

If you're looking for great seasonal work, this is job for you. It's fast pasted, and very stressful but rewarding. A good job for younger people looking for something to start with or make some money.
Pros
Great Pay

Extremely stress intensive job, physically stressful, mentally stressful.

Like a Family
Stocker (Former Employee) –  Youngstown, OHOctober 15, 2018
If you like to work with people, help sale the customers the best fireworks for them, and enjoy working with a group that will welcome you as a friend and a coworker then you will enjoy working with Phantom Fireworks! All employees will respect each other and also treat you like a great friend. As long as you're cooperative with everyone and treat yourself and your coworkers with respect, you will be a great asset to your team.

Decent pay
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Easton, PAAugust 28, 2018
The culture wasn't ideal. There was lots of coworker drama. The pay was decent. Some managers were amazing and others were horrible. They had free meals during the fourth of July weekend.

Fun place to work, get a lot of hours in season
Cashier/Seasonal Help for Summer (Former Employee) –  Amelia, OHAugust 15, 2018
I learned a lot about fireworks and what they do while working here. It also tests your patience because people wait until the fourth of July to buy their fireworks and then get angry when we are out of something or don't have any deals. The managers handle issues extremely well and are prepared for chaos.
Pros
65% off all products on July 5th
Cons
Busy end of June and July 1-7

Nothing All that Exciting, But Still Fufilling
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Seabrook, NH 03874August 31, 2018
As a cashier, I mainly rang products in and occasionally suggested products to purchase. It was always nice to see the excited look on people's faces as they walked away with carriages full of fireworks fit for any holiday display.
Pros
Easy
Cons
No Refunds = Angry Customers

Busy during July, but that’s it.
Stocker (Former Employee) –  Monroeville, PAAugust 17, 2018
During the weeks before July and the week of July 4th, this place is unimaginably busy. Lines going through the aisles, lots of questions and everything needs to be stocked, but most of the time the items that need restocked we didn’t have any more of. During this time we got around 48-56 hrs a week, and during the 4th of July week there was a .50 cent bonus for working. Which gave decent paychecks. After that though, be prepared to get layed off. We had 40 employees, and that dropped to 15 after the 4th of July. All those who stayed were told they were getting kept, but after another week all the stickers left lost there jobs too, because the managers are too scared to be upfront with their employees.
Cons
No benefits besides a lousy 10% discount
