    Scare Performer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at California's Great America in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Attended a job fair for their annual Halloween Haunt, and was hired immediately after only a few questions. The questions mostly were geared to what a performer should expect while on the job. Ex: "would you feel the need to fight back against someone who pushed or shoved you?" or "Try this mask on, would you feel comfortable wearing this for several hours at a time?"

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiating, so I wouldn't know, I doubt unless you are a seasoned scare performer this would be an option, plenty of people would do this job for 12 dollars an hour.
