    I worked at Halloween City part-time

    Pros

    Fun seasonal job, as long as you know how to handle stress well. You get a merchandise discount for working there.

    Cons

    Horrible management! At times, I had to do the assistant manager's job for them. Plus, we rarely got our breaks on time. Sometimes, we didn't get our breaks at all. None of us were even shown the training video until 2 weeks after we opened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that actually care about not breaking the law.

    I worked at Halloween City part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    fun, easy hours, simple tasks.
    it's great getting to work with all the costumes and decorations especially if you love halloween, and/or kids. Overall its a really positive and easy place to work.

    Cons

    seasonal only, cheap products & no return policy make for grumpy customers.
    Alot of electronic decorations are shipped to the store already broken, because its the same unsold merchandise year to year. Which also means some costumes are torn or missing pieces.
    & if you don't like busy & hectic, this place gets crowded,.like lines literally wrapping around the store the last few days before halloween.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't make someone a G.M. when they've literally never worked in store before, makes it very unorganzied.
