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

    Pros

    The job was easy. It was not at all challenging in any way.

    Cons

    The job was boring and made me feel sleepy. Hardly anyone would come out of the dressing rooms to show what they looked like in their costumes. This might not sound very nice, but I didn't like most of the costumes I saw there. I was annoyed at how customers would put things they didn't want on the floor or in the wrong spot pretty often near other items that didn't even belong in the same area as them. I didn't like how I wasn't supposed to let more than one person in a dressing room at a time because I hate bossing people around and restricting them.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what to tell them

    I worked at Halloween City full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job and a good way to gain manager experience. Can be fun depending on who you work with. 30% discount on everything in the store was nice too.

    Cons

    Customers can be bad just like any retail job. Getting a paycard instead of a check was annoying at times.
