What are your feelings on sign holders dressed in costume or not, flipping signs or still? Creative job opportunity or unnerving to watch?

I just can't imagine anyone possibly being motivated to visit a store because of these folks...

I had to do it for. Pizza place... We all rotated through shifts and we all hated it. Poor marketing.

A waste if time and money - and a terrible job. Especially I the sign says "the end is near". Lol

A job is a job, whatever pays the bills.

There was an older gentlemen who was a sign twirler next to my old house. He was pretty awesome to watch. He'd put his headphones on and dance all day. Crazy dances, like break dancing and stuff. He seemed to enjoy it, and hey if it pays the bills...

Yes, I've never been enticed to buy collectables because a teenager in a banana costume was twirling a sign for a store.

You should find a job that you have a passion for, not just pay the bills. That us what separates the successful from the slackers.

Unless it is just an entry level starter job (qualification)

When someone's wearing a giant costume, I never know if I should look them in their fake plastic eyes or into the characters mouth, where the person's head is. Awkward.

Just put up an ordinary sign and cut the drama.

Did you dress like a ninja turtle?

Some of them are really good and fun to watch. Others are pretty boring. It's a job though so good for them.

Holy cow, no. I've only ever seen the guys dancing with the sign. Maybe a few dressed up for Halloween, now that I think about it.

Teen guys dressed as a woman statue with earbuds in, boppin' along and wearing a giant foam hand. Yeah... never had my taxes done there.

Have you ever seen the Liberty Tax folks dress like the Statue of Liberty? I have only seen a couple of women dressed as Lady Liberty. It's weird.
