(They didn't, which I didn't expect them to.) Then in about ten minutes or so, came to find me and took me back to the office/desk. Gave me a short interview, the basic questions, why do you want to work here?, what do you know about this job? the works, asked me about permits and legal work things, and that was it, gave me the job right there. Thought I'd be more nervous than I really was. Overall, an excellent experience. FIRST JOB!!!!!!

    Cashier, Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Barbara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Barbara, CA
    Application Details

    interviewed at Halloween City in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I saw the hiring sign in the window while shopping. I went in and inquired as to whether or not they were actually hiring and whether or not they had an application or wanted a resume. I waited while an application was presented to me. I filled it out, brought it back the next day and was interviewed on the spot.

    My interviewer was friendly, professional and seemed responsible and flexible. She asked me to identify how some merchandise was grouped. Then she asked me some moral character questions and notified me that she would email me when and if I was chosen to work for the company.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you do if you found yourself in the position of having to steal for your family? I was very much taken aback because most people that I know believe that a good employee does not steal under any circumstances unless the product taken is essential in completing a task for an assigned or implied job (like choosing the best product to tote to a trade show out of town and taking it to sell).   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Halloween City in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted and did a Market Manager phone interview in July. I then did a personal follow up interview in mid August. The MM position I was interviewed for went to another, however, I expressed interest in a store as well. The more retail experience you have (apperal experience is a bonus) and desire to be around all things Halloween, the better. I began work late August (2 day training) and got my store after much delay in early September.

    You can ask about salary and they will give you a base metric and guestimation on your recent experience. Returning managers make slightly more based on previous store sale sale and inventory shrink. Nothing is locked in until the Regional is contacted and signs off.
