Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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.

    The process took a weekinterviewed 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. I was offered a job, but then the store manager had to find out if she could actually give me the job. This took like 3 days, even though I was told it would only take a few hours.

    Interview Questions
    • 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.
