Sales Associate (Former Employee), Gainesville, VA – May 21, 2013
Pros: flexible hours, great management, could wear costumes as work uniform or anything bought in the store.
Cons: seasonal job only. but is in partnership with party city.
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.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lima, OH – September 3, 2013
This would be my fourth year working at Halloween City and I enjoy it. This is a fun "holiday" for most people that celebrate it. You work with many different people, meet many different people and you can enjoy it as well. A typical day would be going in straightening up, stocking and assiting customers to their satisfaction. The management is pretty – more... good, it is a easy job to do so I believe anyone can do it. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Union Gap, WA – September 1, 2013
Pros: associate discounts, making conversations with customers at register
Cons: no break room, no security, no cameras working, seasonal
I really enjoyed working with co workers and my manager at Halloween City. I learned from my manager that working at Halloween City is the only place where you can dress up in a costume without getting in trouble. Co-workers I worked with were very friendly and very fun to be around with when we close. We always worked as a team during store hours and – more... after closing when we clean. I never had a problem with any associates or managers while I worked there. The hardest part of the job is the fitting rooms at the time. It was hard to keep track of what costume the customer(s) were trying on because we had 6 fitting rooms and a long line. Asking the customer to leave their bags outside the fitting rooms was hard to do because most customers would be upset, change their mind, and leave. – less

Stock Clerk (Former Employee), Cedar Hill, TX – July 28, 2013
Working at Halloween City has been a learning experience because it was my first job. Throughout the month I worked there I learn how to sort and put newly stock in its proper places. I learned to ticket the prices whether it was regular or discounted prices. The manager was confused most of the time and left most of her work to her assistant manager.
Team Leader (Former Employee), Livonia, MI – July 21, 2013
Pros: food per diem, great people
Cons: long hours and lots of travel time
Learned to manage temporary and long term help. A typical day included unloading a semi truck of merchandise and fixtures for a store and assembling in one day. The most difficult part of the job was the travel. My co-workers were knowledgeable yet also eager to learn. The best part of this experience was seeing each store completed and seeing the regional – more... and local management satisfied and even excited about the appearance of their retail store. – less
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Watchung, NJ – July 21, 2013
Pros: dressing up sunday to saturday
Although this is a seasonal job, this is the best job on the planet. Helping kids find that ONE costume/character that they've wanted to be all year or helping parents/teachers find products to help decorate their households or classrooms; it's honestly the best job on the planet!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Union Gap, WA – July 4, 2013
I had a very good experience working at Halloween City. The people I worked with were always nice and easy to work with, I never had any problems with another employee. I enjoyed getting to work with people helping them find what they needed. From this job, I learned how to stay calm under the pressure of a busy shopping day.
Upbeat temporary working environment centered around Halloween.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Livermore, CA – June 20, 2013
Pros: learned merchandising and plan-o-grams, open/close operations
Cons: one employee's horrible work ethics, took advantage of job and position, unfortunate working environment for all who encountered this person.
I very much enjoyed my first year experience working for Halloween City in Livermore, Ca. I was treated with the upmost respect when I interviewed as well as my first day on the job. I was offered the position of Executive Assistant after my first day. I appreciate that they noticed my ability as a seasoned customer service rep. and treated me as though – more... I could offer them something as well. I learned alot of new skills as a assistant manager, I was able to open and close the store, I learned all about merchandising products and how to use a plan-o-gram. I absolutely loved my temporary job I had at Halloween City in Livermore, Ca. of 2012. I treated it as if it were any other regular job and I was sad when it ended after Halloween. The manager was very on top of her game and has had eight plus years working for this company. She enjoys it and they keep bringing her back because she is a pro and does it right! – less
Seasonal Halloween Store, all and all a great place to work

I was the Executive Assistant for the season, I learned a lot. my management team was amazing, we learned a lot from each other and grew as a whole team. hardest part of my job was leaving at the end of season. co-workers were great, hard working and willing to do what it took to make the customer happy. I enjoyed helping kids find exactly what they – more... were looking for and seeing how happy they were to be getting their costumes. – less
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – June 16, 2013
This was my first time being an Assistant Manager. I absolutely loved it. I struggled at first and had many responsibilities all at once, but I soon learned how to multi task and work in a fast paced environment. I was a great leader and team player.
