    Pros

    It's okay place for entry level position. good people overall

    Cons

    No advancements offered. Low to mid pay as well. High turnover and some management positions are not even qualified (more on experience I guessed but education lacking though)

    Advice to Management

    Maybe promote for advancements and encourage management to have education for better results

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at West Edmonton Mall part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There aren't too many pros to this job except plenty breaks. However in most guarding jobs that is to be expected. Also meeting new people everyday was a plus.

    Cons

    Trying to talk to managers about problems other than severe safety risks was like talking to a brick wall. Lots of the staff including some supervisors seem to bring personal drama and unprofessional behaviour to work. Scheduling had gone downhill from the start to the end of my employment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! Doing little things can go a long way to increase worker satisfaction and safety.

    I worked at West Edmonton Mall full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a long time ago that I worked there and I enjoyed most of that time. The enviroment was very interesting and never a dull moment. It was exciting and I learned a lot about the job and tourism as well as internal politics.

    Cons

    Internal poiitics were tough. I did not receive a promotion but I believe things are better now.

    Advice to Management

    Your training programs are very valuable and should attract good management staff.

    I have been working at West Edmonton Mall full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours to coincide with exams and school Earn enough to pay for school in the summer A lot of like minded people to work with

    Cons

    There is a lot of management doing things you just do not understand why? I'm referring mainly to upper management in which you have no association with but they make you do their random unfounded ideas. It makes you look forward to doing work within your degree

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, fun things happen at the Mall.

    Cons

    Not the best leadership and most random org chart ever. No real direction coming from one specific person, direction comes from everywhere and you are expected to listen.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a back bone and take a management course, you suck a leading a team.


  9. Too much internal politics, budgets too tight
