Guest Services Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 February 2013
The Howdy program is very difficult to be a part of. I enjoyed the job itself, although there is clear favortism by the leaders. They promote their family and friends, and they get hired because of their connections. I was very suprised to be hired, as I was only among a few that was hired without a friend who was a leader.

working at the stampede is a lot of work, but its really fun at the sometime. It involves a lot of problem-sloving skills and communication skills. as a usher you spend your day dealing with customers, guiding them to their seats, answering questions, showing concerns for others safety , and other services.

This was the first time that I ever got to work and got paid. I had a lot of fun and enjoyed my time working for the north american midway. It was hard at first but it got easier. Although it was a temporary job, it was still enough time for me to gain customer service and better communication skills!
