Okay place to work. Safe environment, but coworkers accuse you of stealing and thievery.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – March 20, 2017
A typical day at work included: handling cash and serving customers while keeping your work area neat and clean. Occasional clean up was necessary. I learned more about counting money and dealing with customers. Management was okay. They could be a little condescending at times. The workplace culture was fun. Being around all of the roller coasters really helped set the mood for working there. The hardest part of the job was dealing with rude customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was serving customers.
Fun and friendly work environment, Very interactive with guest
Foods Team Lead (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – February 3, 2017
There is nothing better than going to work and knowing you will make somebody's day. That's what the Mall was all about. I was able to work with children at Nickelodeon Universe. The employees I managed were kind-hearted and enjoyed what they did. I learned many skills involving guest services through on-the-job training. When management switched in 2015 communication was no longer there. This made it harder to articulate to the higher-ups what was going on throughout the park. The most challenging part of this job was handling situations in which guests were unhappy with their experiences. Although, I was almost always able to send them on their way with a smile on their face.
Free rides, good benefits, meeting famous people
unorganized company, being watched by management on camera
I worked there during school and at first it was ok. I enjoyed the job and the compensation (who wouldn't love free passes to a theme park?) But I quickly learned that they didn't care about us. we just worked for them.
My last day working there, I was an hour and a half late getting off the clock, because they forgot about me. Even after I called asking for relief, they took over an hour to get to me.
They don't take the time to get to know their employees, and that wears down a team real fast. in the 3 months I worked there, I only had conversations with one supervisor, who made it a point to go around and check on us during our shift.
mall discount, free access to the park
long periods between breaks. only one break for an 8 hour shift
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – December 20, 2016
It was awesome working there for 5 years. I have enjoyed meeting people from all around the world and making great friendships. Pay could be more but it's not an ideal CAREER more like something where experience can be obtained.
Decent part time position for those in school or have an additonal job
Entertainer/Character/Cohort (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – December 8, 2016
Previous job duties included performing as one or more of the costumed characters in the theme park of the Mall. Additional duties included facilitating meet and greet moments between the characters and their guests. I've learned about handling concerns of guests in a variety of situations. Management tends to be an even balance of friendly and strict. My colleagues were knowledgeable and reliable, but the hardest part of my duties were finding ways to advance. This job was most enjoyable in the fact that it wasn't as stressful as some other positions can be.
Free ride tickets, flexible scheduling
No much room for advancement and lack of insurance benefits
I loved working here because of the up beat mood in the restaurant and the awesome guests. I started off hosting for some months and was promised a serving job after I turned 18 but when the time came I ended up getting the short end of the stick which was really upsetting.
Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Bloomington, MN – July 18, 2016
I find most parts of this job to my liking or at least meeting my expectations but I do feel they need more innovation to stay ahead and that the standard response to situations tends to show their thinking is stuck in the 90's.
free ride at the park, employee appreacaition days
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN 55425 – June 19, 2016
This is an interesting way of looking for potential employees. I've never used this method or come across it before but I guess with consumers changing along with everything else, we have to evolve I suppose.
Team Lead Supervisor (Current Employee) – Bloomington, MN – May 21, 2016
Oversee all departments and reps running the Mall floor to ensure that the daily operations are running smoothly. Learned how to become a leader as I am in charge of over 200+ staffing. We have to make sure that every one is connected day to day and that all preparations are ready for opening or closing. Connecting with all departments in order to go in detail what the day to week plans are set for the Mall.
breaks are given only when time is available and may be short.
