Full-time Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Port Charlotte, FL – May 30, 2018
On the office level it was a great place to work. My co-workers worked well together and the general manager's priority was making our mall and work environment the best. On the corporate level everyday task were challenging. However, on the corporate level they had just purchased our mall and the operations was trail and error. I still enjoyed my tender here.
Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – July 10, 2018
The WPG location in Fort Myers (the Edison Mall) is terribly mismanaged. The staff can be hostile and unprofessional towards other staff that they do not like. If you are not in the manager's clique, you are automatically an outcast. The manager also protects the abusive supervisor who has been the source of harassment in the workplace for at least the past 6 years. Although I learned a bit in my role, it was not worth the emotional and psychological torture of working with people who unapologetically do evil things towards their coworkers. Unless you like to be in the middle of grown 50, 60, & 70 year old people yelling at each other all of the time and extreme passive aggression, I would advise working somewhere else.

Development Coordinator (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – March 27, 2018
You are initially lured in with the promise of career advancement in order to entice you into working longer hours without being paid overtime. In reality it is just to get as much work out of you as possible without having to pay you fairly. Management will push meetings back as far as possible in order to avoid talking about certain subjects and will say one thing to a coworker's face but then talk poorly of them behind their back.
When I first started at this company I loved the environment. But current management at the corporate level has no drive. Things are always delayed and you can never communicate with anyone because they are always in meetings. Many new hires have been given titles they have no experience in. The work environment portrays itself to be business casual, relaxed, open and fun but recently employees have been getting written up for minuscule things that are not against the handbook.
Office Administrator (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – February 20, 2018
The office work hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Being the landlord of the mall tenants has offered an interesting and rewarding job. I've learned leasing, legal and retail procedures. The training provided is very detailed and the company provides a very large and detailed training library for employees.
Employee (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – February 9, 2018
The company started out very well, however, corporate changes have resulted in a complete decline in the company culture and overall management. People are given titles that they haven't earned or have no experience in. The company's focus has changed from being focused on providing good products/services to worrying about minutia and creating paper pushers. The new regime resembles more a factory worker environment than a professional environment.
A company that is very hard working but everyone is very relaxed and always willing to say hello or help you with a question or concern you may have. The company is very involved in the community whether it be donating to charities or participating in events such as 5 Ks or Pelatonia. The dress code is very relaxed in the sense that you may choose to wear jeans and a polo or t-shirt everyday. They encourage you to support your sports team on fridays by either wearing jerseys or whatever you feel is best to show your support. The cafe offers free bottled drinks. Overall a great company.
Overall, Washington Prime was a good company to work for, unless your looking to advance your career. They will tell your next in line for a promotion, but will end up taking longer than two years to promote, if it happens at all.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Sanford, FL – November 10, 2016
You'll get paid for doing managements job and your job for minimum wage. The hours are so low, there's not enough tho go around so no one no gets paid at all. The management team is really nice but they are fake and stupid. That talk about everyone and demand so much yet they do absolutely nothing in the office. I hated this job b so much
Assistant at Guest Services (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – June 1, 2016
I was so lucky to come across this job. They worked with my school schedule, and they are a group of friendly people. A typical day at work for me starts at 9:45 and ends at 6:30. I answer the phone for the CottonWood Mall and answer general inquiries, take messages, and transfer calls appropriately. My coworkers are older than I am, but I have always felt very welcome. The hardest part of the job was working long shifts, I've never had to work 8.5 hour days but I've grown used to it. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in the customer service booth and getting to talk to everyone and greet people. I also enjoyed being able to do school work on my down time, they have provided me with everything I need.
