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

    Pros

    I worked at a franchise location and it was a lot of fun. I got to work with some great people and it was fun to help people pick out their Halloween costumes! It was a fun and fast paced environment and I would work there again.

    Cons

    It can be long hours, especially the closer to Halloween it gets and it is retail so you do occasionally have to deal with less than pleasant customers.

    Advice to Management

    It would be appreciated if the corporate office would help backup the decisions of the store managers, especially at the franchise locations. We had someone try to return product without a receipt which we can not do but when she called corporate they assured her that we would do it and it created a very unpleasant situation for all involved.

    Pros

    The company has a formula to run their stores, and they support you along the way. They offer a bonus program incentive. They are always making changes and many in a positive way for the employees.

    Cons

    It is more the customers that treat the place like a trash heap. Don't know why they have to trash the place. Company-wise they could allocate more Man-power hours earlier in the season

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees access to Spirit Learning Center from home to complete training and a pay incentive to complete in a timely manner so they do not need to use time at location to access SLC.

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

    Pros

    Energetic upbeat work atmosphere. Is is a very cool place to work in. It was my first Sales job experience, I was trained quickly however it was a complete training. Often lunch was provided. It was an awesome work opportunity. Also the people were the best.

    Cons

    Unfortunately often we were short staffed due to unreliable part time employees. The pay could have been better, but it understandable due to it being a seasonal job.

    Advice to Management

    I actually had an excellent relationship with all levels of management. All that I might suggest is that you reward your better staff with a higher pay rate. Perhaps by doing so you would not need to waste time with the sub standard employees.
