    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Mall of America full-time (More than a year)


    I enjoyed the work environment, and I felt that there was alot to be learned while working there. You build good relationships with your coworkers, but like any workplace, there are still a few toxic employees. Although the security field still differs from the police field of work, you can still build alot of foundational skills that will benefit you anywhere you choose to go. Skills like conflict management, communication, and critical thinking are used every day (well, by most). The pay is very good for security, the hours are good (normally 4 on 3 off). I genuinely enjoyed my time there, and was a little sad to leave.


    Due to a steady rate of turnover, overtime is sometimes mandated, and this can be frustrating if you are in school. There are also people who want to run around and pretend they're cops, and that's not good practice for a security department.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I had no issues with management, but I also did my job. My only advice to management would be to get rid of some of the bad apples sooner.

    Event Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Blooming Prairie, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Mall of America (Blooming Prairie, MN).


    Easy interview process. Only because you will not get a job unless you were an intern You know when you nailed an interview. I nailed it, with a marketing campaign for spring break with Nickelodeon Universe as a bonus project with less than 3 days. Handwritten thank you note didn't help. Terrible corporate staff. Could not ask for worse people to run this organization. Also had a job shadow with their social media team. They canceled the day of with no explanation and refused to give me any other dates that worked. Avoid working here at all cost.
