Productive, fun workplace that I was sad to see go.
Temp. Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Redding, CA – May 5, 2014
A typical day at work started by clocking in with a pin code and fingerprint scanner. Then we started right in with stocking and organizing displays, as customers entered we would greet them and offer our help if they had any questions or needed assistance. We would also manage fitting rooms for customers who wanted to try their costumes on before purchasing. After the doors closed at the end of the day, management would count out our registers as well as the safe. Then they would either appoint one of the assistant managers or myself to escort them to the bank for a scheduled end of day money deposit. The management and coworkers were some of the friendliest people I have ever worked with. They were also very responsible and each one kept to their tasks diligently. The hardest part of the job was actually organizing the displays because the store manager was very particular, but the most enjoyable was helping customers get their perfect costumes and accessories especially since we were trained to be knowledgeable about our products and we could see them leave completely satisfied.
Fun coworkers, decent hours, caring and responsible management.

Go into it not expecting much and you wont be disappointed. Easy "interview" process and if you love Halloween its a cool job. Better to work there if you already have experience in retail since the training is relatively minimal. If you want some extra cash and an employee discount its a great temp job.

my days at Halloween city were amazing. Lots of group projects in building racks for merchandise and a lot of creativity. Team work all around. Very positive vibes and worked with my schedule of working two jobs

If you love Halloween, this is a great side job. Helping people find costumes in stock is all good, but the real joy is when some one come in with a costume idea we don't have. You get to find creative ways to make their idea with what you have and really get to talking with them. It is a seasonal job and it's still retail so there are negative people that will stick, but you have great coworkers and great managers that have your back and will pick you back up.

As a Halloween City customer service associate I assisted customers making purchases, finding special orders, and selecting appropriate accessories. I was trained to ascertain customer desires through inquiry, pulling multiple options, and listening to patron suggestions. My job duties were assisting clients with the cash register, helping throughout the floor, dressing room and working in the stock room. Hardest part of a job is keep things organize.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – August 22, 2017
I loved working at halloween city. It was a very fun and friendly environment. Really nice for a first job. Lunch breaks arent too shabby because there's a dollar store in walking distance and also a mcdonalds and a pizaa place in each direction.
Hours are really flexible, friendly and fun environment with a decent lunch break
Location; parking lot thrashed at evenings and homeless around

i was hired there during the Halloween rush. my first day I was sent home after just working 2 hours. the next day it was the same. the manager laid me off, saying she overhired. but I was eligible for rehire. the little work I did was very easy.

if you love halloween you will love this job. was very laid back but still professional. great for a first job, was one for me. mostly just put costimes in the proper place, help costumers out and sometimes if a manager tells you to you might have to monitor the dressing room.
