With a mission statement that proudly proclaims that we are, “Bringing People Together to Make Life More Fun!”, ShindigZ is pleased to be America’s favorite for prom and party supplies. Since 1926, we have been in the business of making life more fun and delighting not only our customers (to whom we affectionately call “Party Guests”), but also for our employees, better known as “Party Hosts.”

Why We Party

We are deeply committed to our business and the philosophy of fun! We truly love what we do and why we are doing it. But that’s not the only thing that makes us tick; we are also driven and inspired by our core company values. The following are the values that guide us in our daily work and help us focus on why we are here every day:

1. Customer #1
2. Integrity
3. Team Player
4. Leadership
5. Positive Can-Do Attitude
6. Communicator

In addition, we have company and team goals. These goals are evaluated and revisited on an annual basis. We also have a three-year vision plan to help us grow and prosper.

The Fun Team

ShindigZ is truly committed to making life more fun for our Party Hosts. After all, we make and sell party supplies, and parties are what we do best! That’s why we have a group of Party Hosts who serve on our Fun Team to plan events for the company. Here are just a few of the events we have:

  • Halloween at ShindigZ
    Party Hosts dress up and trick or treat around the various departments of the company. At a specified time, all costumed Party Hosts stand in front of our building and wave to cars that are passing by. It certainly is a sight to be seen!
  • Holiday Fun
    The holiday season is a magical time at ShindigZ. Party Hosts can take part in our company-wide Secret Santa. Party Hosts present their final gift and reveal their identity at the company holiday party. The party also includes food, games, holiday treats, caroling, and much more!
  • Summer Picnic
    Every summer, Party Hosts and their families are treated to an afternoon of summer fun! Games, giveaways, and picnic fare make this a great day for all!
  • Other Events
    We have a large number of additional events throughout the year, including our St. Patrick’s Day celebration when we dress in green and eat baked potatoes, Pajama Day when we wear our pajamas to work, and Luau Day when we dress in tropical attire and eat tasty treats.

Party Incentives

Of course, we have more than just a fun atmosphere at ShindigZ. We offer competitive incentives and benefits to help all of our Party Hosts strive to do their very best. These include:

  • Insurance
    ShindigZ offers full-time Party Hosts medical, vision, and dental insurance plans at competitive costs. ShindigZ also offers an insurance program that includes life insurance and short- and long-term disability insurance.
  • Quality Rating Bonus Program
    This measures how we are serving our customers based on our accuracy rate, on-time shipment rate, and customer service levels. The results are measured and posted weekly, and reviewed at company and team meetings. If we meet specified goals during each month, we pay a cash bonus to all Party Hosts at the end of each month (up to $100 per Party Host per month).
  • 401(k) Plan
    Our 401(k) Plan matches 50% of the first 6% that a Party Host defers into the plan. Party Hosts are eligible to participate after six months of employment.
  • Flex Time
    We provide flex time to Party Hosts in certain positions to meet their personal needs, including summers off.
  • Education Assistance
    ShindigZ will assist in paying education costs for any Party Host wishing to work toward a college degree in a work-related field.
  • Service Awards
    Service Awards are given to Party Hosts when they celebrate milestones of service, beginning with five years of service.
  • Paid Vacation, Holiday, and Personal Time
  • Section 125 Plan
  • College Savings Plan
  • Fitness Benefit
  • Health & Wellness Programs
  • Safety Incentives
  • Product Discounts

Party Snacks

To make life at ShindigZ even more fun (and delicious!), we offer free popcorn every Wednesday from our old-time popcorn machine. And in case our Party Hosts need a little caffeine to get them going, we provide free coffee every day. Also, each month after our Company Meetings, we provide a healthy snack for everyone!

Where’s the Party?

ShindigZ is located in South Whitley, Indiana – a small, friendly town approximately 20 miles west of Fort Wayne. In fact, South Whitley is known as “Indiana’s Favorite Hometown”! The quaint downtown area boasts a handful of unique eateries that feature delicious home cooking and tasty treats, making them the perfect place to enjoy lunch.

You’re Invited!

If the ShindigZ party interests you and you’re committed to delighting our Party Guests and being delighted as a Party Host, then we invite you to submit your credentials for consideration. We are continually looking for energetic, detail oriented, and competent Party Hosts to help us grow and achieve our goals.

During our busy season (from January until June) we are always looking for people to join our Customer Service and Production Teams. We offer flexible hours and several different shifts. Each January we have a Job Carnival (or some other festive event) to hire new Party Hosts for our busy season. We hire full-time, part-time, and seasonal Party Hosts.
