Managerial interviews are quite difficult compared to the ones in the sales department.

I applied online a few days before. Then I received a call from the store I applied at, but they asked if I could work at another location, and we set that up. They were using the store cell phone, which turned out to be an old flip phone. The actual interview was casual and short, not even 30 minutes long. 😏

Sat with Market and Regional managers for the process. Straight forward questions to find if you're skilled and driven for the qualifications. It's a seasonal position, so they're looking for the skill and retention of those hired.

No benefits package for temporary employees. 😢

The best thing is the experience and ability to make week-long decisions in a day. 👍

okay pay, if you can manage to do well in sales, you can get a good bonus at the end of the season.

A fun job and its temporary nature make it a great choice for some extra cash. 😉

Yeah, but upper management was there to help in this situation. 😊

It's seasonal, and they expect you to hire many employees right at the end of the season.
You comment as
One of the great things here at Halloween city is the almost equal proportion of gender hiring.

So what are a man doing side by side with women in this company? 🤣
avatar-of-creator
10 months ago
Women must have taught men how to raise a creative bone in their brains. 😜
You comment as
Can anyone tell me they have ever given an interview in the sales department?
avatar-of-creator
10 months ago
very easy and casual if you need a temp job and it's the right time of year, they're always looking. ✌

10 months ago
Very easy process. I applied online, and the managers texted me the next day, asking to come in.
You comment as
The best thing about the bonus was that it could be large if you were lucky enough to have a large and busy store. 👏

Metrics are not given to you, so you'd know how to attain the bonus of $300, split into two parts.
avatar-of-creator

Yeah, I know those two. The other is for inventory, for which a number is not provided to attain the other $150.

I have heard the employee discount is more than 30% 😲

There is a 30% discount for store employees. However, I believe it cannot be used on sales or marked-down items. HIH

The best thing was the challenge of running your own store and fulfilling the expectations of the corporate.

It is seasonal for only 3 months which makes it temporary. HIH

They move from place to place, city to city, that is why it is temporary.
