Mall Cop

Odds of Getting In

Mall Security is looking up as a profession. People love to buy things. Even more than that, people love to shop for things, wandering the carpeted expanse of malls eyeballing the latest merchandise for sale. Since shopping has become our national pastime—the Mall of America in Minnesota gets 40 million visitors a year—we keep building more malls.

More malls mean more Mall Cop job openings. The key is to increase your chances of getting in by having the right experience and training.
