Your workers are there mainly to have fun, yes sometimes there is a bit of money and reputation to be had but people mainly work haunts to make friends. We are are people of all types and kinds that have come together with the common interest of Halloween. So if you get wind of egos starting to flare up, do what you can to make things a better place.
I know your kinda questioning well why is that important with auditions . Well you want your good workers to come back. Even your semi good actors you want to be able to depend on because they know the drill, they know what to expect, and you will notice good improvement on actors out of nowhere just because they feel more comfortable on there second year working with you. At the last haunt I worked with I know of eight good workers and two first year workers that have said they will not work for this particular haunt again just because one ONE PERSONS EGO. An thats not including me even though I'm starting to think the same thing as them.
My two cents.
