Spirit Halloween: Mortals Wanted is one of our affiliates. However, they’re also my favorite place to shop for Halloween. That’s how I learned they were hiring. Via one of the promo emails I get from them.

I got a kick out of their graphic.

Spirit Mortals for Hire

The “looking for a few good mortals” idea tickled me. Out of curiosity I clicked through. Here’s what the blurb on the application site said:

Spirit Halloween, the largest seasonal Halloween retailer, is the nation’s destination for everything you can imagine for Halloween. Since the opening of our first store in 1983, Spirit has experienced significant growth. In 1999, Spirit operated 63 seasonal locations throughout the United States and was acquired by Spencer Gifts, LLC. Since the acquisition, Spirit has grown from 63 locations to over 1100 throughout the United States and Canada. Spirit Halloween’s merchandise is also available online.

Spirit carries an expansive and complete assortment of innovative, entertaining and fun Halloween costumes, decorations and accessories. It is the one-stop shopping destination for the Halloween enthusiast of all ages for all their Halloween needs. Through the vast merchandise assortment and memorable visual presentation, Spirit stores provide a truly impressive, unique and unforgettable shopping experience. Our benefits include a competitive salary with a unique work environment.

I’d never get a paycheck if I worked here. All of my money would be spent on the merchandise.
