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

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.

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

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

Productive, Friendly Environment, Also Very Relaxed
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 18, 2018
Walk and clock in on time or earlier , put lunch in the fridge in the bag. I learned how to have good customer service when helping. Management will reward you when every worker is doing a good job and will help whenever someone is having problems explain the products to the customers or will help on register if needed. There’s really no hard part working there. The most enjoyable part is just having time to associate with your coworkers after a busy day
Pros
Free Lunch Occasionally

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.
