Nearly 300 auditioned Monday for temporary work portraying monsters at Knott's Berry Farm's annual Halloween Haunt. Most of the jobs pay minimum wage and call on the characters to don costumes and makeup, scaring guests at the park. Despite the low wages, some applicants spent Sunday night on the sidewalk in front of Knott's employment office in Buena Park to be among the first to audition. About 300 actors from last year's Halloween Haunt were invited to try out. By early afternoon, almost all 300 had filled out applications.
