The Halloween Adventure store is getting ready to open its doors for the season of haunting and is looking to hire staff for its locations in South Redondo Beach and Rancho Palos Verdes.
The Halloween costume shop will be holding an "open call" hiring fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 4 and Sept. 5 on-site at the former Bristol Farms building at Palos Verdes Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway in South Redondo Beach and a location in The Terraces shopping center on Western Avenue in Rancho Palos Verdes, said Halloween Adventure District Manager Ryan Goldman.
"Interviews will be done on the spot depending on the turnout, which we are anticipating will be on the large side," he said. "So we'll be accepting applications during that timeframe and encourage people to bring their resumes for the open call on Monday and Tuesday."
Goldman said they plan to immediately hire 15-20 people, then add an additional set of new hires at the start of October in anticipation of the Halloween rush.
What They're Looking For
"We are hiring Key Holders, Sales Associates, and Cashiers, and we're looking for both part-time and full-time employees—because it's a seasonal position, we're looking for a little bit of everything," he said.
Goldman added that they are also open to hiring students and can accommodate school schedules, but will give preference to those with retail experience.
"We're looking for all different types of people—high school and college students, retirees, parents ... anybody who we feel has the qualifications to talk to a customer," Goldman said.
The Redondo Beach and Rancho Palos Verdes stores will open their doors to the public on Sept. 7 and are expected remain open for business through the beginning of November, Goldman said.
