Overview and benefits


Spirit Halloween is the largest Halloween store in the United States. Spirit Halloween is more than just a store. It's an experience! It offers products like animatronics and other spooky decorations that will make Halloween even more fun for guests. While Halloween is a season that comes only once a year, the company sells all of its products online all year long.

Aside from Halloween decorations, Spirit Halloween also sells costumes for all ages, props and much more. Spirit Halloween is North America's go-to retailer for all things Halloween and the company loves to help its folks celebrate Halloween in style.

Every summer, Spirit Halloween welcomes local students into its internship program to receive mentoring and practical, hands-on experience while learning about career opportunities at Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween. In addition to working with the team to inspire creativity and enhance collaboration and communication skills, interns are given the chance to participate in several events and interface with many Spirit Halloween team members through luncheons, workshops and community service. Former interns often describe the internship program as the most fun they’ve ever had—at a company where the mission is “Life’s a Party! We’re Makin’ It Fun”, what else could you expect?
