Halloween will be here before you know it, and Spirit Halloween is already ahead of schedule. For the 2023 season, the retailer is hiring 40,000 associates across its U.S. and Canadian stores. They’re specifically looking for new and returning associates who are at least 16 years old, as well as store managers who are at least 18 years of age.

Due to year-over-year demand for trending Halloween costumes, animatronics, and Halloween decor, Spirit Halloween is set to open a record 1,500 stores across North America in 2023. And to keep up with its growing customer base, they need more workers to fill those locations (they currently operate about 1,450 stores). On July 29, they’re having a grand opening at their flagship store in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey.
