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
3. Team Player
5. Positive Can-Do Attitude
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!
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!
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!
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.
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:
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).
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.
We provide flex time to Party Hosts in certain positions to meet their personal needs, including summers off.
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 are given to Party Hosts when they celebrate milestones of service, beginning with five years of service.

Health & Wellness Programs
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.

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.
