Cashier/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Staten Island, NY – July 22, 2017
Even for working just for a seasonal it was all in one package with having Halloween the best time to anyone to be who they want to be and also how they want to be. Staff members and customers enjoyed they time
A typical day at work is maintaining a good environment while greeting and helping customers. Greeting the customer with a nice smile as you ask if they found everything while at the cashier helps ensure good customer service. Working at Halloween City was a good experience that I am happy to have, I learned how to maintain a cash register, stock, inventory and work on my customer service. Although the cashiering was fun, it was also one of the hard parts of the jobs for me. It was my first job and I feared that I would mess up and not satisfy the customers. However, whenever I felt that way my manager always smiled and was there for me and push me through it and eventually it became easier to cashier. Working there was a good experience for me as an individual I have learned many things and overcome things. The smiles on the customers faces as you realize that you helped make that smile happen by helping and talking to the customers; that perhaps was probably the most enjoyable part of the job.
Cashier/Greeter/In Charge Of Dressing Room (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – July 16, 2017
I absolutely loved working here. Not only is it fun and you can dress up in costumes but the costumers are usually pretty average on their moods and purchaches. Very fun place to work. Especially if you're a lover of Halloween. I highly recommend.
10$ a hour. Get to dress up in costumes. 20 minute lunch breaks.
Fun place to work, Great management, always exciting.
CASHIER/INVENTORY SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Hermitage, PA – July 11, 2017
I had a great time working for them. Store management was great. The higher ups weren't helpful when it came to questions. I had a blast helping kids and adults put together their costume, ideas for a costume and decorating ideas/tips.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – West Jordan, UT – July 8, 2017
I enjoyed this place of employment, it was a good first job. It was fast paced but it taught me a lot about customer service and how to be quick on my feet. I learned how to do things quickly with accuracy.

Changing Room Attendant (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – July 1, 2017
During the short time I spent at Halloween City, I had a pretty O.K time. As changing room attendant, I was given a lot of busy work along with supervising the work area and shoe wall near by. There were a few dull moments, as with any job, but for the most part I stayed on my toes.

Cashier/Sales/loss Prevention (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – June 26, 2017
A great place to start, I was 15 when I had my first job with their competitor and I sought out seasonal retail ever since. This type of placement is great in learning how to work with a team, store presentation, and assisting difficult guest's needs such as school dress codes. I was always good with the managers in that I volunteered to do the taks that 'nobody' likes such as dressing room and aisle clean-up.

Gets messy, but after all that's why they pay you!
temporary/part time sale floor associate (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – June 23, 2017
Note: I worked at a temporary location that was strictly Halloween City, not Party City. I loved working there, due to my age I was technically not allowed to move up at all, which I did not mind. I loved being on the floor and helping people find costumes and accessories. I felt like such a valued team member that my input was not only heard, but we actually did some of what I suggested. We were also allowed to wear costumes while working so long it was appropriate, who wouldn't want to do that?
