    I have been working at Halloween Express full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    We had a huge bonus at the end of the year! I loved the owners! Everything about it was amazing! We had so much fun in the spirit of Halloween! We got a discount on the merchandise as well! We wore costumes to work and danced on the corner with the sign if we wanted to! It is such a great store and so much fun to shop in as well as work in!

    Cons

    It's only a seasonal job. I wish it lasted all year!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you so much for the opportunity!

    Pros

    Good pay (had a raise every payday)
    Awesome coworkers, management, and owners
    Fun job like working at a Halloween party
    Wonderful customers
    Discounts

    Cons

    The only con is it is only seasonal work wish these places could be open year around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep this the wonderful place to work that it was when I was there. Let your employees interact with customers. Encourage the best customer service. I know we were all complimented on this on a regular basis from our customers. It made the job a breeze and fun. I looked forward to working daily. Keep this up!

    I have been working at Halloween Express

    Pros

    Pretty much let you do what you want as long as store is picked up and you help people. I walk arond all day and just put back stuff people threw in the floor. Its not rocket science.

    Cons

    Didnt get interviewed they gave me a shirt and said heres the floor good luck. Im not used they way I should because I have more experience than the store manager, store assistant and about five other people combined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have rang out over a million people as a cashier before here and they wont show me the register. I could be a huge help to a already busy store.

    I have been working at Halloween Express

    Pros

    It is a great place to work while in school and having scheduleing issues. The management was friendly yet lacked motivation. It is a seasonal business. if you dont like your job it doesnt last long.

    Cons

    management lacked direction. The hours are stressful...but it is seasonal. Pay was not good and it gave no room for potential growth...they dont even offer benifits to general managers and need to have the best intrest of the company and employees in mind.The employees that were hired lacked work ethic and respect for customers and coworkers. I feel this is a reflection on management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Notice the hours and dedication that is put in by employees...and compensate them.

    I worked at Halloween Express

    Pros

    I love Halloween, and this job pays better than working at a haunted house. The attitude within the company was laid back. We were able to wear costumes once it got closer to Halloween.

    Cons

    Management was nonexistent. The owner of the company had no communications with my manager. They kept sending crates full of the same products, which we had no room to display or hold in back. We were getting merchandise three days before Halloween, and were expected to sell it all. The employees were left to set up the store completely without the help of efficient management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized well before September. Have a plan before you try to set up your store. Do not open in a location that appears to be half torn down.

    I worked at Halloween Express

    Pros

    Good hours (usually no less than 40 per week). Nice co-workers. Management loved Halloween, was knowledgeable about almost everything pertaining to each product we sold. The pay was beat minimum wage.

    Cons

    As with most retail jobs, you'll encounter some not-so-nice customers, but at least at the end of the day (or really at any point in the day) you can joke with your co-workers and management about the "crappy" customers you deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Not a word of advice, really. They knew what they were doing and how long that location had been in business was a reflection upon that. When most Halloween stores like that one barely lasted a season, the store I was with had lasted about six seasons at the end of 2011.
