Fun work place to work stand learning about the fireworks is awesome
Cashier/ Front End (Current Employee) –  Easton, PA 18042July 10, 2018
A typical day at work is being good at customer service, always be up and happy, give them a good experience when they shop for the right explosive for the right occasion. I love the management there, they are so flexible with what you have to do outside of work and try to work with the schedule together. Hardest part about the job is that people can be in a bad mood when they come in and take it out on you when something isn't right.

Fun and challenging place to work!
Showroom Manager (Former Employee) –  Macclenny, FLJune 23, 2018
Phantom Fireworks is mostly a seasonal job. Seasonal employees can work flexible hours, but work really hard. Managers work extended hours during peak times, but normal schedules the rest of the year. Being able to work with the public is a plus. Although working hard, the environment can be fun!
Pros
Seasonal work and fun
Cons
At peak times, the work can be exhausting

Terrible Management at Livonia location.
Head Cashier/ Front end manager (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIJune 12, 2018
The store manager there is condescending and rude. She doesn’t know how to talk to her employees, without treating them like a child. Makes cashiers do jobs that aren’t related to their job descriptions. Says things, and then will go back on her word and say that she never said it. Gets frustrated easily and takes it out on others. I feel that this company doesn’t care about its temporary employees.
Pros
Easy job, light work
Cons
Poor management

Only good for a quick buck
Front End (Former Employee) –  Morrow, GAMay 31, 2018
The current manager isn't too friendly, however the assistant managers are okay. The job is really laid back until the day before and the day of said holiday you are employed for. 4th of July season can be stressful being how that iss the most lucrative time of the year for them, but they'll give you free lunches and a bonus as long as you stay within the building during your entire shift and come on time. You can't even eat lunch in your own car without forfeiting the bonus, which was ridiculous. They are pretty understanding when it comes to getting more hours. Other than that, its an okay place for a quick check or two.
Pros
Free lunch, relaxed environment
Cons
low pay, unfriendly management

Assistant Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) –  Sterling Heights, MIMay 20, 2018
They let you do what you want, the only requirement is to get the needed work done. Truck days are hard, but worth it with the right people working besides you.

Sales (Former Employee) –  Kirkersville, OHMay 16, 2018
The atmosphere at Phantom Fireworks cannot be matched. It is a fast-paced environment with mostly happy customers. Many of the positions are seasonal, but the pay is fair for a summer job.

Fun and kid like environment.
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Merrillville, INApril 30, 2018
My typical day at work was looking up firework videos to familiarize myself with our inventory. I learn a lot about the way the fireworks were made and what is illegal and legal. The management was awesome. He was very intelligent with the products but new how to manage the staff. Hardest part of the job was dealing with upset customers. Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the families excited to buy there products and showed them which to light off first and last.
Pros
Free lunches and 60% off
Cons
lots of hours during the 4th of July

Fun Summer Job
Floor Manager, Stocker, Cashier (Former Employee) –  Roy, UTApril 29, 2018
I enjoyed working here in the summer. It was fast-paced and an interesting environment. Its a fairly easy department to work in as long as you know about fireworks and what the particular ones do, the legal and illegal ones, etc. Heavy lifting is mandatory. Stocking in morning and evening is also mandatory, when working in sales tent. Pay is low and you are not given benefits.
Pros
Positive environment, flexible hours
Cons
Very low pay, dangerous, physically demanding

4th Key Manager (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYApril 24, 2018
I've worked here for 3 seasons now. Each season has brought us closer and made the work experience more enjoyable. The boxes can get heavy, but there is always someone around to help. The environment gets faster and faster as you close in on the 4th.
Pros
Free lunch lots of overtime
Cons
Fast pace heavy lifting when it hits the week of the 4th it's all hands on deck

Sales Associate/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FL 32118April 12, 2018
The bulk of your work season will be a getting preparations in order for the holidays. This is going to either be for New Years or the 4th of July. Organizing the sales floor, warehouse, overstock, truck, and deliveries.

If you want to get used and abused
General Manager (Former Employee) –  MichiganFebruary 26, 2018
Avoid management jobs like the plague,. They will understock your store, send unqualified people to set up and tear down, harass you if you need a sick day, and will give you no days off from 2 weeks before the 4th of July on. Good pay, but not worth the years it will shave off your life.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Pretty much everything else

Successful firework salesman (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTFebruary 12, 2018
Great for seasonal work but difficult if you have another job. Learning about the product is fun and how to sell but it is difficult to get anyone working in the local distribution to care about anything other than themselves
