Congrats GothicCandle. My daughter has been working for the past month setting up Halloween Adventure stores. This is her second year and she loves it. The discounts are Ok but watch for the damaged merchandise they usually mark it down to a decent price.

Congratulations! Minimum wage or not, you'll be paid for working somewhere you can really feel at home at.

I can get carried away at these Halloween stores just looking around and gathering ideas...and before i know it, more than an hour has gone by, even if I buy nothing. I often wondered what the employees think on the occasions that I leave empty handed after a lengthy time of watching me exploring and being deep in thought....you'll have to let me know.

Wow, you are going to come home every week in the negative. It will probably cost you money to work there because you'll probably want to spend your whole check and more buying all the great props! Have a great time!

The season I worked at the Halloween Express I had a blast. I did makeup on people and advised on costumes, and wore makeup myself pretty much every day (if they have you doing makeup, do some browsing and learn all the pro wrestlers, the kids go nuts for it... the year I worked there was when "Sting" was big and I sold so much red and black face paint it was ridiculous). Have fun, be helpful, and sell sell sell! If you're excited about Halloween and they pick up on it, it'll be a piece of cake.

I worked at a Spirit a couple of years ago. I still had my full-time day job so worked nights and weekends and spent just about every penny I earned on stuff from the store, which was the basic idea. Got a lot of cool stuff and had a great time working there, but I was so exhausted by Halloween that it wasn't as fun as I thought it would be. Then I found this forum and decided to spend my time trying to make props instead of earn extra money to buy them. I'm too old to have two jobs.

Have a great time while the season lasts.

Since they won't give you a discount, maybe run around and break some things, then get 'em at a discount and we'll buy 'em???? J/K ~ Really......

I started working at Spirit last week, and I gotta admit, I want everything lol

just the other day, after work my girlfriend wanted to go in my work place to see what we have and to buy a few things since I had $60 to spare

we ended up gettin the 5ft outdoor ghost on clearance- $29.97, originally $99, bleeding skull candle and some single skull candles.

but anyways, how do you not get a discount for working there??!??! They gave me a 25% employee discount when I went there. I saved around $19.

Happy Haunting everyone
