I was desperate for a job and found this company looking for people via Craigslist.  Having previous experience in this industry, I followed their detailed instructions from their ad.  A week later, I heard back.  I had missed their call but called back immediately and did not hear back for another week.

Finally, when I heard back (after calling every day), I was told about their 3 step process to ensure that I was a fit for the job:  1.  Go to one of the parties they were hired for and see what they do  2.  Try on costumes to make sure you're comfortable 3.  Be trained for 4 hrs. unpaid.

They scheduled me to drive out to a party 40 miles away from where I live.  I was there a few minutes early, as instructed, waiting suspiciously as I was standing outside this person's house waiting for what turned into 30 minutes.  The clown showed up late, and I shadowed him.  Although the show was sub-par and he had a bad attitude both towards me and the party-goers, I was still interested.

I called back the next day, again as instructed, only to get their voicemail.  I tried again the next few days and still heard nothing.  When I finally received a phone call back, it was the same guy who I had talked to before and who was the clown at the party I attended.  First on his agenda was to aggressively defend himself about not calling back.  He then said that if I was still interested I could come in to try the costumes (he would call me to set up a date) but that I would have to be okay with not getting very many jobs due to my "size".  However, in the original response to the ad I had to include a picture, my height, and my weight which he did not mention as an issue when we first talked.

I agreed that my lack of party option due to my "size" would be okay and that I would be available to be trained asap.  Three weeks later, I still have not heard back and after reading reviews about their company I am glad I am not associated with them.  Do not apply!  You'll waste time and money driving out to a party, only to never hear back again.
