Scariest Employers in The Nation Launch Hiring Season On Friday the 13th

KANSAS CITY, MO. July, 11, 2018 – America Haunts, the most successful group of haunted attractions in America, is hosting a national hiring day to launch hiring season beginning on Friday, July 13 to launch its hiring season. The group encourages actors, theatrical personalities, makeup artists plus other creatives, and others to apply to join the team.
 
Employers at the 28 haunted attractions that makeup America Haunts go to great lengths to retain employees and hire new talent at their locations that annually lure in more than a million daring souls while providing jaw-dropping family-fun haunted entertainment every Halloween season. 
 
“Our teams take pride to provide thrills to America with the biggest, most creative and technically advanced haunted attractions in the world. We train our cast members to expand their creativity while having have fun on their jobs,” said Amber Arnett-Bequeaith of America Haunts in Kansas City. “We chose Friday, July 13 as the appropriate day to kickoff hiring season for those interested in joining our national family of ghouls.”
 
Each season, each haunt builds teams of 200-400 staff members. While some are employed year around to build new sets that give guests an even more bone-chilling experience than their last visit, seasonal workers are also needed to work as monsters, makeup artists, security, admissions, and at the concession stands.
 
“With a stronger economy, a higher numbers of guests are expected to visit the haunts this year,” said Mike Jubie of Headless Horsemen, New York. “Each individual haunt owner is providing extra their own extra perks to gain great workers such as: more comfortable work environments, dinner, cash bonuses, end-of-season parties, work anniversary jackets and more.
 
“Some haunts are adding air conditioning to their top floors to provide improve comfort – that cost is very high because many are very old historic buildings.”
 
“A lower jobless rate is great for the nation and with that comes interesting challenges,” Arnett-Bequeaith said.  “People have choices on where they seek employment and those who make the choice to join our team  share similar traits: they love Halloween, entertaining and belonging to teams.”
 
Spending on Halloween in 2017 topped $8.4 billion with over 33 million people visiting haunted attractions. The industry continues to grow.
 
To apply, visit any of the haunts listed below:
