Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to start hiring managers from within who understand the day to day process of what it takes to keep the store up and running. Training and understanding as well as patience while training could be improved upon, and team work as well. Stop talking about employees behind their backs about how bad of a job they are doing and help them to do better instead

What I like about the company

I like that its a party store, so while it could be stressful, it was very fun at the same time. I liked that while i was there i was able to move up into management pretty quickly, and i beleive if i had stayed there, i would have moved up even more higher

What I dislike about the company

Again, about hiring managers from a completly different retail environment to come in and take over. In my experience, it made the dynamic of the team uncomfortable and stressful, because this person was trying to run a retail party store like and upscale furniture store. Higher from within

Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe more communication would be key to resolving and preventing a lot of issues between entry level and management. There was an open door policy available, but when tried to be utilized it was not always the easiest thing.

What I like about the company

The fellow employees I was working with were always very positive and encouraging. When you arrive to work you felt excited and ready to do your part and help for the day. Whenever you're working for Party City you have a wide variety of customers coming through that bring joy and life to the store. You are able to be a part of some of the most exciting times in someone's life. Party time! When you're organizing and planning for a party it become a exciting for you as well to know you helped someone plan a fun event.

What I dislike about the company

The hardest thing was making the decision to stay or leave the company due to miscommunication with management. At the particular location I was given the opportunity to move up and it didnt happen because of simple miscommunication. I chose to leave the company and find other work elsewhere where I was able to utilize my managemelt skills.

  • Make the training process a little more enjoyable, and when hiring management, higher from within. When i was working there, they would hire managers from different companies who would have no idea how to run the store

What I like about the company

It was fun working there, but there was also a l ot of pressure. I was able to meet a ton of new people, and i met some of my lifelong friends in this comany. They made it possible for me to move up into a management possition very quickly

What I dislike about the company

I think there was a lot of pressure to get things done while having to maintain customer service among many other things.
