Application

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Spirit Halloween (Hyannis, MA) in August 2013.

Interview

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 Questions

Negotiation

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.

    Interview

    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.

    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.
