    Conventions and events beneficial

    Corporate could care less about what franchises are doing or how they are doing it which is cause them to lose unbelievable amounts of revenue.

    Follow up on franchise and educate all the owners not the yes people in the clicks who are ripping off the corporation more than the franchisees who have figured out what clicks are doing

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    discounts on costumes, friendly managers and coworkers, always enough people on shift, easy work, scheduled breaks

    Cons

    slow, boring and monotonous. you memorize the whole store within a few days and then its extremely boring. youre assigned to walk down one aisle your whole shift. makes the time go by really slow. its also a seasonal job so you cant rely on it

    Advice to Management

    I would offer some type of training for new employees. even though the job is very self explanatory, theres still long periods of long and boring monotonous shifts where the employees are left wondering what to do.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule
    Friendly work atmosphere until it gets closer to Halloween
    Encourages learning marketable skills

    Cons

    Made schedules in advance; set in stone
    Unprofessional at times; coupons cheats the owners out of money, say no word about coupons; refund policy changes depending on the customer
    Work overtime when Halloween draws near
    Become a slave at minimum wage; put up with abuse because manager experiencing poor diet and lack of sleep
    Question of ethics; if customer does not see flaw in the store, then they are accountable and not Halloween Express
    Seasonal work so no benefits and career opportunities within company are going to be limited

    Advice to Management

    Management should also be accountable for employees' actions
