    Very quick and easy at temporary stores. They post an email address at the new location in an empty store. Emails and people who come to the meeting date are employed first, as well as people who've previously worked there. Everyone else is hired after and the store is liberal in taking applications. If you are recommended by a friend, you are 80% more likely to get hired.

    Walked around the store for 30 minutes air so after giving my application to the assistant manager ( a she). Had met manager ( a he) day prior. He came in later and saw me, went to look at application. Went to help a couple looking for yard stakes and the husband said "Do you work here?""No, but I just put in an application, he's (manger looking at it right now.""You definitely should work here, we'll let them know." (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 Employee in Santa Barbara, CA
    Anonymous Employee 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
