Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Gainesville, VA – May 21, 2013
Really fun and accepting management. Great team members working together. Anything you bought in the store could be worn as work clothes, which was fun. You could dress up in costumes that had spares and wear that during your shift. Incredibly fun seasonal job.
flexible hours, great management, could wear costumes as work uniform or anything bought in the store.
seasonal job only. but is in partnership with party city.

Very fun environment to work in. Management is very nice. It was seasonal work during Halloween time. I am just sad to see it in. Money was good. I was offered alot of hours. The Halloween costumes were very nice that they sold.

I love working at Halloween City. My co workers are very friendly and very good workers. It is a very enjoyable work environment. I helped cleaned the whole store and I did cashiering. We get a lot of customers that are children and I love associating with them.
friendly staff, responsible management, good customers

Dressing Room Attendent (Former Employee) – Peoria, IL – October 12, 2015
It was a fast paced yet laid back environment. The hardest part was making sure I had a co worker to help put costumes back from the dressing room. The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to laugh and have fun with the customers.
Seasonal cashier (Former Employee) – New Hartford, NY – September 22, 2015
I worked cash register and greeted costumers as they entered the store. I learned how fulfilling it is to assist people when they are trying to put things together. Management was very respectful and worked with us. My co workers where always there to assist if need. The hardest part would be when costumers wanted something I was not able to authorize and they would get verbal with me while waiting for management to come over. I enjoyed that I was able to dress up in different make up and costumes everyday.
It was my first job and I returned every year except for this one. I absolutely loved it and I would recommend everyone to go work here for the experience. My manager was a wonderful person with a kind heart.
Employees are responsible for working in all areas of the store. Since this is a seasonal job (for everyone) most of the management and coworkers have other jobs, so the team tended to be stressed and overworked. But overall it was a fun job that was completely centered around Halloween
Fun job, flexible hours
Not many hours for new employees, stressed management, job only lasts a few months
Productive and fun working the the customers and the staff
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – September 11, 2015
A typical day of work at Halloween City is cleaning, running the cash register, restocking, and answering any questions the customers had. I learned how to use a cash register. The management was fun to work with and communicated very well with the employees and I. My co-workers was very fun to work with. The hardest part of the job was doing everything fast but not messing up. The most enjoyable part of the job was that we got to dress up as long as thee costume we choose was work appropriate.
District Manager (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – September 4, 2015
Before Party City bought out Halloween City it was an amazing ride.. As the DM it is CRAZY during the season. I tell people 2 things about this job. It is the most insane, crazy 5 months of your life. from the time you set up and merchandise to tear down at end of season and managing 6 stores plus helping weaker districts and helping train everyone in such a short amount of time is the hardest and best experience at the same time. But somehow it was ALWAYS FUN. Then party city got involved and it just went downhill FAST i mean faster than the FLASH! they went all corporate and rule crazy in an industry that was all ready insane they just made it harder.
