Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Mesquite, TX

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Spirit Halloween in August 2013.

Interview Details – Only had one interview, which made sense considering it's a seasonal position. Interviewer got straight to the point. Asked many questions about work experience, personal traits(strengths/weaknesses), and finally testing scenarios. The interview mostly consisted of us talking about my accomplishments, managing successes, and/or failures. They will also want to know how much you love Halloween, Dressing up, and Spirit in general.

Interview Question – How would I respond to an employee who lies about stealing product, when you catch him/her in the act?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate and earn myself an extra dollar per hour.

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Hyannis, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Spirit Halloween in August 2013.

Interview Details – I got a call from my district manager saying he would like me to come in for a interview. The next day I went in and sat down with him. Since I worked their last year, I didn't have to answer as many questions. He asked me why I would be good for this position as well as what it involved. After about 10-15 minutes he told me to look out for the email that would have the link to finish up my employment with the company.

Interview Question – There weren't any during this interview process.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no need for negotiation since the pay Im getting at Spirit at the moment is much more then my sales associate position at a other company.

Assistant Manager

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Spirit Halloween in August 2011.

Interview Details – I applied to this position online and was contacted by the local store manager a few days later. I went in for a 1on1 interview that lasted roughly an hour and consisted of the store manager telling me how to answer questions about leadership.

Interview Question – The interview consisted of basic "talk about a time when X happened and how did you deal with it" questions   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was told my pay would be 11.50 an hour when accepting the job, however, when filling out payroll paperwork with the district manager, i was told that the max pay was 11 an hour, and I would have to take that instead.
