Some jobs that you can expect to find posted:

Scare Actors: Haunted houses need performers skilled at impersonating ghastly creatures and scaring the daylights out of guests. You’ll need to be reliable (the house doesn’t happen without you!), enthusiastic and comfortable working as part of a team to provide a good experience.

Special FX Makeup Artists: It takes a team of people to get scare actors into costume. The makeup artists are an important aspect of this process, spending hours every day to transform employees into monsters.

Other: A variety of other roles are available at haunted houses, including greeters, security, cashiers, customer service professionals, marketing help, costume designers, building crew, and wardrobe assistants.

Most haunted houses evaluate staffing needs for the upcoming season, accept applications, conduct interviews and begin training new staff between July and September. The timeline for hiring varies by haunted house, so be sure to be mindful about upcoming deadlines at haunted houses near you.

We will once again be posting jobs for haunted attractions across the country.
