Simon Property Group will toughen you up in ways you couldn't imagine, so for that I'm grateful. However, nepotism is everywhere and although the local property determines your everyday (completely depends on the mall manager and this changes the dynamic of the office completely; luckily, mine was good), corporate will trickle down and that's where most of the toxicity lies. For anyone under the age of 35, if you're looking for creativity, you won't find it here. However, if you wish for stability and managerial growth, give it a shot. Corporate also makes decisions for the local level that aren't always applicable for the property itself so there is a disconnect. Also, if you're a POC.. your experience may be different. I won't go into it more than that.
Guest Service Representative (Current Employee) – Nashua, NH – March 28, 2018
I worked for Simon as a Guest Service Representative for 2 years at one mall, then the position was pretty much dissolved overnight, the customer service booth was taken down, and I was jobless without warning. I was pretty upset with the company. When I was asked to return seasonally at another Simon mall I hesitantly accepted the position (just to make some extra cash around the holidays). It’s an easy job, slow paced environment except at Christmastime then the workload increases as it does with any retail job. The pay is minimum wage with very little room for advancement so most people only work as a GSR as a second job to make extra cash, it’s not a career you can live off of unfortunately.
Short shifts, relaxed atmosphere, meet people
Rarely get breaks, no room for advancement, minimum wage
Office Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – March 19, 2018
The people I have had the privilege of working with at Simon Property Group have been nothing short of outstanding. The work, even though I have taken on extra outside my own specific duties, is tedious but not challenging. I would recommend this position to someone comfortable in their own day to day duties.
Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – February 20, 2018
Very competitive, but they do hire from within. Benefits were excellent. We had weekly meetings which were great and kept everyone on the same page. Management was not afraid to also do hard work. I learned a lot with Simon Property including event set up, and administrative functions. I worked there until May of 2014.
Working for a mall corporate company as a representative will help you get the experience you are looking for regarding being either a secretary an assistant or in office relation. It is a quick - paced environment where you need to keep up to the pace and busy and all times engaging and helping people find satisfactory needs.

GSR Representative (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 2, 2018
It is a good place to work. You meet a lot of people from different Countries. It is nice to be helpful. The hardest part of the job are the upset customers you may encounter in a day. But I always do my best to have a great day at work.
