Overall it was exciting, and tiring but also attentive. I learned quite a bit on how a work-placement is.
Concession Worker (Current Employee) – London, ON – 21 May 2017
Working at the Budweiser gardens is exciting because it was a new environment for me to be in. I've gained a lot of experience with sales, customers, and patience. The pros of the job are free food and you get to experience fun events such as, seeing Disney characters, monster trucks and more. You always see happy customers and it makes the workplace just that much better. The only con of this job is that, you are on your feet for 10+ hours straight so it can get exhausting. There are usually some people who try to steal food, it's a very crowded place which could make you overwhelmed and cautious. I've gained a lot of experiencing with customers as in, making sure they are happy, making sure they get what they want, and that they have a great time at the event. Working here for me has helped my patience with customers. We have a lot of items to sell, so it could take up to 5 minutes until the customer knows what he/she wants. All the employees were friendly and nice as well. We all made sure everyone was happy and that everything was cleaned up by the end of the day.
Free food, experience with events
