Halloween is just around the corner — least for one retailer.

Spirit Halloween’s flagship location in Egg Harbor, N.J., will open on Saturday, July 31. The seasonal retailer, which is owned by Spencer Gifts, will continue opening stores throughout North America and will have a majority of its approximate 1,425 locations open by Labor Day.

In conjunction with the openings, Spirit Halloween is looking to hire 35,000 seasonal employees. This year the company, similar to many other retailers and restaurants, is offering prospective employees opportunities for early hire pay incentives, along with flexible scheduling, competitive salaries and bonus opportunities. Plus, employees will be given a 30% discount on all Spirit Halloween merchandise.

"It's a competitive job landscape and we know candidates are looking for opportunities where they can learn and grow, while also having fun in a collaborative and high-energy environment," said Steven Silverstein, CEO at Spirit Halloween. "At Spirit Halloween, we live and breathe Halloween 365 days a year, our associates' passion and dedication are what got us through the most challenging year in recent history and we are looking for team members to join us in celebrating what we anticipate to be the spookiest Halloween ever while experiencing the excitement that Spirit brings to all of its locations." 

Specializing in costumes, décor and accessories for children, teens, and adults, Spirit Halloween creates a completely immersive Halloween experience for everyone that includes an exclusive line of animatronics.
