Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Spirit Halloween.

Interview

They didn't actually ask me any questions. They just told me a little bit about the company and the job and then offered me a position. They did want me to know that it was a tough job and I would need to be able to commit to working 7 days a week when it got closer to Halloween.

Interview Questions

  • They asked me about my availability, wanted to make sure that I could work whenever they needed me to.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spirit Halloween (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I sat down with the store manager and she asked me star questions. She told me at the end of the interview that I had the job if I accepted. I accepted and she told me I'd receive an email to continue the process. 4-5 days later I hadn't received an email and I called to check in. She said she'd speak to the DM and get back to me. That was 8 days ago and I have since called, left a voicemail, and received no return call. I'm assuming they changed their mind?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Spirit Halloween (Oswego, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was really quick, they just ask a bunch of questions about retail experience, if you're a quick learner, and if you've ever handled money before. Really unprofessional my interviewer had sweatpants on.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Spirit Halloween (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The DSM was unprepared. The Store Manager was professional and intelligent. I felt that the Store Manager had everything together but others would not let him always do his interviews and make the decisions he was hired to do.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Spirit Halloween (Hyannis, MA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I got a call from my district manager saying he would like me to come in for a interview. The next day I went in and sat down with him. Since I worked their last year, I didn't have to answer as many questions. He asked me why I would be good for this position as well as what it involved. After about 10-15 minutes he told me to look out for the email that would have the link to finish up my employment with the company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no need for negotiation since the pay Im getting at Spirit at the moment is much more then my sales associate position at a other company.

    Interview

    Only had one interview, which made sense considering it's a seasonal position. Interviewer got straight to the point. Asked many questions about work experience, personal traits(strengths/weaknesses), and finally testing scenarios. The interview mostly consisted of us talking about my accomplishments, managing successes, and/or failures. They will also want to know how much you love Halloween, Dressing up, and Spirit in general.
