With better managers it is a great work environment
Sales associate (Current Employee) –  Fredericton, NB17 September 2018
The store is very fun and upbeat. The management int this specific location is however very poor. They are very unorganized with their pay, hours, and training. The managers butt heads often about what they want. I have been asked to completely redo tasks that one manager approved, but the other manager was not happy with, it is a waste of everyones time.
Pros
Fun store, long shifts
Cons
Poor management

Don't work here
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON27 August 2018
Unprofessinonal, manager as well as the store owner did not get along which made the workplace far more hectic. Applied for being a cashier yet was stuck doing the hard job just for them to let go half of their employees. The store was a mess and everyone was yelled at by the owner for not doing the impossible. Was guaranteed the position as a cashier at first however was told that if I did not help set up the store practicially everyday, I would be let go and the position that, may I remind you, was already given to me, wouldn't be guaranteed after all. If you apply before the store opens, reconsider.

Customer care (Former Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON9 June 2018
It's a fun place to work and management is very nice. Things i have learned are better communication skills, i learned how to handle the cash, and learnt how to work in a busy environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to see people excited about getting their costumes and having fun.

Fun job
Manager (Former Employee) –  North Vancouver, BC7 June 2018
It's a fast paced job that is only 10 weeks. High intensity. The company it self is ok, but it is a franchise so it's different at each location. It's not too connected to the head office.

Great manager and coworkers and atmosphere make this a fun job
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON3 June 2018
Typical work day can include unpacking and pricing products, creating displays and placing products on the floor, assisting customers with change rooms and finding requested costumes. Can also involve working cash or sign holding outside the store to draw in customers. Can be valuable for work experience as a cashier/ customer service representative. Coworkers get along well and manager is tough but cares deeply about workers. Hardest part is being on ones feet for hours but the most enjoyable is interacting with customers and seeing happy children leaving with their costume of choice.
Pros
fun atmosphere
Cons
lots of heavy lifting

Sales associate (Former Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC29 May 2018
This was my first job. It was super fun, very laid-back. Every day we were allowed to choose a costume from the floor and wear it for the day. This encouraged sales. As a first job, it taught me a lot about how to handle customers and control the sales floor when it got busy (which was often since it was a halloween store in october). Good place to start learning about customer service.
Pros
fun work environment
Cons

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Manchester, CT10 May 2018
Love working here seasonally. It is a very fun environment that can get crazy quick. You need to keep a close eye on people so they dont steal. There is no theft alarm system is Spirit stores. The hard part is how chaotic it gets closer to Halloween. You run out of product very fast. The best part is how relaxed and fun the atmosphere is.
Pros
Fun atmosphere/employee discount
Cons
long shifts/Chaos

Busy but fun atmosphere
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Pickering, ON1 March 2018
10/10 would do it every year! Employees need to stay busy, as there is constant work to do and generally a lot of foot traffic because it's a place people come to shop and play.

Extra fun if you love Halloween!
Pros
Fun, upbeat atmosphere
Cons
On your feet constantly (but you get used to it)

CASHIER | SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB9 February 2018
Very fun and casual work place of two months each year. Easy to learn store layout. Management will work well with an already busy or very available schedule and recognizes hard working employees. Allows employees to wear costumes to work and provides discount including a friend and family day for staff to give discounts. Staff tends to feel like a family. They are quick to let staff go due to the job being such a short seasonal position
