"Selling fireworks started as a job for our college student and after the first year turned into a family project each summer. Our kids gained organization and bookkeeping skills which was helpful experience in obtaining jobs later on. It became a fun family time and year after year we would have the same customers come back. It is a busy time starting with the tent decorating to packing the last fireworks at the end of the season. Help is only a phone call away and the managers are the greatest at helping you with any situation or question. The whole experience is great!"
"The managers were terrific! They spent plenty of time with me making sure I understood exactly what I was supposed to do. I had my mom help out on the busy days and together we had such a fun time. I will be back next year. The opportunity came just as we were facing Summer Property Taxes for the first time, and it worked out perfect."
"My entire family has been involved in fireworks sales for seventeen years. It is a busy and exciting time, you get to see happy repeat customers who look forward to the wide selection and good quality of the fireworks PPI provides. If you need to make some extra money in the summer and enjoy meeting people, this is the "gig" for you."
"Working for PPI Michigan has been something I looked forward to each summer for the past 10 years. It is fun to sell fireworks to people who like to celebrate the Fourth in grand style and know what they want and it is a challenge to sell fireworks to people who don't know what they want, but know they want something. Because the job is only for a few weeks and the pay is good, it has afforded me the freedom to have most of the summer free. Selling fireworks has been a great opportunity and a lot of fun!"
I love selling fireworks for PPI! There is a preview night each year, and this allows me to see what I am selling so that I can help my customers create a fantastic fireworks show. Because they have been in the business for many years, PPI has a solid set up for the tent. The layout and product display is clear and concise for both me and customers, and this facilitates sales and the set up process. PPI provides training and all necessary supplies and paperwork, so I can focus on selling fireworks. As a teacher, I love working with students and sharing my passion for social studies, and I find that this transfers well to my summer job of working with customers and sharing my passion of fireworks.
