I worked part-time in a live theatre venue. I never saw anything, but others swear the place was haunted. When closing up several people thought they saw someone sitting in the sound booth.

Again, not me, but a friend who worked as a pharmacist in a hospital. Their office was in the basement down the hall from the morgue. The morgue doorway had these long clear plastic strips hanging in it. Several times he said when working alone, the strips would move. He put it to the air-conditioning, except one thing bothered him. They moved in a way as if someone were walking through them.

My only personal story of a workplace oddity, is one I almost forgot. I worked for a large company. We had our own office tower with a large cafeteria for workers in it. Some of us would work the odd weekend when the building was empty. The cafeteria of course was closed, but easily accessible as it had no doors. One Sunday a co-worker who had gone down to use a vending machine in the cafeteria came back saying that she got freaked out because it sounded like someone was working the sandwich counter, but there was no one there. She was a sensible person, and not prone to jokes like this. Intrigued, I went down alone. Standing by the sandwich counter I at first heard nothing. Then I heard what sounded like one of the stainless steel lids on a container clunk down. Then rattling of what truly sounded like someone working behind the counter. No voices. It wasn't coming from the back, but right in front of me. It was odd.

The JC Penny's store where one of my daughters works here in Colorado Springs is haunted. To the point where at least 1-2 times a week when she comes home from work shaking, I tell her that they need to call The Dead Files paranormal investigators team.

It would be a great show. The location has already been featured on the ID channel's 'Lt. Joe Kenda' due to the murder of a manager in the 1980s.

My daughter is a college student so she closes the store as an assistant manager on the evening shift & almost every night the employees leave there rattled after another unexplainable occurrence.

One night 20 minutes after closing, my daughter did a walk-through of the Home Goods department to find a man just quietly sitting on a bed. She said 'Sir? We are closed' & the man said 'I didn't know' & he stood up & walked in the direction that my daughter had directed him to; the only door unlocked.

She radioed the security guy that a customer who had been locked in the store was headed to that door to make sure the man left but he never arrived. The employees were there late checking every nook & cranny of this 3-story building but he had literally disappeared into thin air.

Shortly after closing one night they found the chairs in the break room haphazardly balanced on top of the file cabinets. The cleaning crews come in the morning & there was no customer in the store. All of the employees had been busy closing the registers.

Frequently, the elevator traps employees or will make random stops to the empty floors when nobody could have summoned it. Once, the elevator door suddenly slammed shut after my daughter had stepped on, leaving her manager behind & proceeded to take my daughter up & down before arriving back on the floor where the other manager was still waiting.

They have had the fitting room lights turn off & had the doors open & shut on their own while doing walk-throughs while closing. Can hear people talking in them after they have done the walkthroughs & cleared that area.

Just last week, after all the employees had clocked out & had been waiting in a group to exit the store together for the night; a woman's voice came over the overhead paging system to call one employee by name & said 'Corinna; register 6 is closed'. They all just looked at each other, did a headcount & exited the store as fast as they could! (Corinna is an older German woman who does not suffer fools lightly but she said 'I am NOT going back up there! She is also the same one that the elevator door almost slammed on & it seems she has a higher amount of activity centered on her)

Seriously, at least once or twice a week my poor kid comes home so scared she'll say 'I NEVER want to close that store again!'

Chilling! This sounds like a winner for The Dead Files.

Thanks, that what I think too! As I said, the store has already been shown on the ID channel due to the murder mystery involving a manager in the 1980's. I mean; it IS a winner!

I am a skeptic, but I used to work a security gig at Tanforan Shopping Mall in Cali. The place used to be a Japanese internment camp, and many people working there at the time thought that it was extremely haunted.

One day, we started getting vague, indecipherable transmissions over our walki-radios, and the guy sitting in the employee entrance watching the monitors started freaking out because some of them started blurring. He honestly begged us for someone to come relieve him.

Yeah, by the way, I know that it sounds like Independence Day. We made the joke at the time.

Anyway, still as skeptic, but that happened. Think of it what you will.

It happened AGAIN last night!

Two men were seen walking through the store after it closed. A woman who was checking out late stated 'Oh, there's my BF.'

As my daughter finished ringing the woman out, Corinna walked after the men to escort them to the only unlocked door.

When she caught up to them there was only one man. She said 'Where is the other man that was with you?' and he said 'I'm not with anyone else; I'm just waiting on my GF.'

They checked EVERYWHERE. Underneath every bed, in every dressing room, in & behind every rack & never found the man. Again, for the second time in a month; they had to lock up & leave, thinking someone was being locked in the store.

There are motion sensors that automatically turn on when the last door is locked & they never went off all night, or else both my daughter & Corinna would have been the ones contacted by the police.
