    I applied online. I interviewed at Halloween City.

    It was a very short and easy interview. Probably less than 10 minutes. She was very nice and when I messed up on a question, she just brushed past it and still offered me a job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Halloween City in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied really early, around August. Got a call to come in. They were still setting up the store. When I walked in the woman gave me the once-over but then turned on the smiles. She rushed the interview and it was over in less than 3 minutes. I knew right away that she was not going to hire me despite me giving good answers and having experience. I firmly believe she made her decision once she saw my appearance and rushed the interview to get it over with. Never got called back.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Halloween City (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Very quick; I was only asked one question: "Why do you want to work here?" I was really surprised because you'd think that if you're going to hire someone to be assistant manager, you would ask them at least a few more questions to get a sense of who he/she is and whether he/she sounds trustworthy/reliable/etc. I had never worked retail before in my life and to only ask me one question and make me assistant manager seemed a tad unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Halloween City in September 2015.

    Interview

    I had applied online a few days before. Then I received a call from the store I applied at but they asked if I could work at another location and we set that up. They were using the store cell phone, which turned out to be an old flip phone. The actual interview was casual and very short, not even 30 minutes long, it seemed had never given an interview before. She even said "they didn't even tell me I would be interviewing" so that should have clued me in to the lack of organization here. She was nice and easy going.
