Have you ever worked at Spirit Halloween? What was it like? I see either really good reviews of working there or really bad reviews of working there.
Oh, it's a whole different level. Because you spend a lot of time dealing with high school age kids, they will go in purposely to make messes. They are destructive on purpose because they can be. I never really made use of my discount because I don't really buy much at retail except parts. I don't do generic props, it's all custom built. I walked away with some of the custom signage at the end of the season, which was nice, but otherwise, I don't know that I spent all that much there.I haven't gotten my first schedule yet but I work 55+ hours a week at my job so when I went to Spirit to inquire, the store manager said I could work as little as 4 hours a week. They will work around my schedule because theirs is posted 2 weeks out whereas my full time job is 3 weeks out. I will update once I actually start. I have worked retail for a long time so I am used to the call outs, theft and mess left by customers so I am not concerned with that. I worked Toys R Us at Christmas time many years ago for a seasonal job and that was a nightmare! I think for the discount at Spirit I am going to give it a try! I too will more than likely spend more than I make!
