    I worked at Halloween City

    Pros

    I ABSOLUTELY loved working at Halloween City!! It was fun, especially when I helped customers pick and choose accessories. I enjoyed working with most of our team.It was amazing putting the store together, and it looked great. I worked basically everywhere I was needed, but my favorite part was helping customers. I would be extremely happy to work there again this year 2015) and also Party City, if you put one in Beckley, WV. I think that is a very good idea because of the number of customers we had. Also, there are many schools and colleges in Beckley, and WVU just bought Mountain State College and will be moving in soon.

    Cons

    The main problem we experienced was theft, from customers and specific employees. We really needed surveillance cameras in place at our store. Also, a few of the younger people really didn't have the experience or the job ethics needed, but they were nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This year, please buckle down on loss prevention. Also, add surveillance cameras (real or not, just highly visible to the public and employees.
