    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Spirit Halloween (Lancaster, OH) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I received a call from the manager. I was asked to come to the store for an interview. I met with the manager and proceeded with the interview. We talked about my previous experience, thing happening with the store and what they were needing to do to get up to Spirit's standards. Most of the actual interview was roughly a personality test to make sure I could accurately help guests/customers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spirit Halloween (Carlisle, PA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The manager seemed more focused on evaluating if she'd like to be friends with me than on if I'd be a good fit for the position. She kept stressing how all of the employees get along and work as a team more than telling me what employees actually do, and she kept asking me irrelevant personal questions. It's just as well I wasn't hired, because I found it very off putting. Some might like a "buddy buddy" work culture, but I definitely don't. I will have a polite working relationship with coworkers, but that doesn't mean coworkers are friends. I applied to work, not to find friends! Especially for seasonal work. The manager also seemed put off by the fact I was nervous even though I openly explained I always get nervous about job interviews. Her response was strange and entirely unhelpful. Even if she thought she was being helpful somehow, it came off like she thought I shouldn't be nervous, when any actually good interviewer would know to acknowledge nervousness is normal.

    Your mileage may certainly vary because this was a single store in a large chain. Maybe I got an exceptionally bad interviewer, though that's definitely what she was.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Spirit Halloween (Baldwin, Allegheny, PA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online at the end of July, and eventually got a call on August 18th. The manager brought me in for an interview the next day. Upon arrival, she lead me into a spare room for the interview. This was all extremely informal, the manager was even wearing cat ears. She was super nice and could tell that I was nervous, reassuring me that I didn't need to be. The entire process took about 15 minutes, for I was only asked about 5 different questions concerning what I would do in different situations. In the end, she ended up offering me the job, in which I accepted.

    Easy Interview

    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?

    Interview

    I walked into the store for my interview and one of the leads at the time was the person I who interviewed me. She was very nice however it was not a sit down interview. I was walking with her through out the store while she was putting up costumes and helping customers. There weren't a lot of customers at the time so it was okay.
