    I worked at Spirit Halloween part-time

    Pros

    Fun job, good discount, lots of high energy, good pay,bonuses available, get to dress up to work! I loved this job.

    Cons

    Heavy lifting and moving in the store, seasonal, can become overwhelming when it gets really close to Halloween

    Advice to Management

    I think that the management is actually handled very well and I never had a problem with Spirit.

    I worked at Spirit Halloween part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Fun work environment -Great in-store team -Flexible with schedules up until a certain time of the season

    Cons

    -Higher up management was horrible. Most of them above our store manager were terrible leaders. - we would have to deal with shoplifting on our own with very little help from upper management to help deter. -Hectic workplace closer to Halloween

    Advice to Management

    Store managers, assistant managers were all wonderful people. They were all extremely stressed out by higher management. This definitely needs to be fixed.

    Pros

    Super fun environment. Fast paced. Nice customers. Nice staff.

    Cons

    Sometimes unorganized. Some employees tend to not care about the job because it is seasonal.

    Over-hire! More than half the staff tends to leave by the end of the season

    I worked at Spirit Halloween part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good discount, great coworkers (with a few exceptions), good hours, and a fun time with customers! I plan to cut my hours back at my new job so I can go back this season!

    Cons

    Some lazy coworkers, very crazy during Halloween, spent my night at my store until 1 am, but it was alright because I had great coworkers!

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay to keep employees, fire the undedicated ones who don't even bother showing up.

    Pros

    Good money as Store manager. D.M. left me alone to do my own thing. I had a good location and found fun employees

    I was on a salary and to stay on budget I had to work 50 to 60 hours a week. High school kids call off.

    Up the pay for key holders.

    I worked at Spirit Halloween part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked part-time while attending college so I worked 4 days a week, fun faced paced work environment, co-workers were easy to talk to and make friends, customers were friendly and easy to talk to, management was easy to communicate with. I got a 25% discount on merchandise, and could extend it to friends and family during promotions.

    Cons

    I had to work Halloween, otherwise I would be fired on the spot. It was the only day out of the year that I would beg to have off, other than that no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Please let dedicated employees get their favorite holiday off. I had to work 10 hours that day, while most other employees worked no more than 4.
