Prep and Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 July 2017
great work area but unprofessional in some areas. Sometimes you were unaware of your work schedule, It was hard to get in contact with the supervisor or even harder to get into the park without a pass because they didn't give us work I.D
Rover Patrol Worker (11 days) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 June 2017
when i worked at the stampede i was with the boys and girls club. working at the stampede was really fun i picked up garbage but i meet a lot of new friends. You always get to go to the stampede for free and than the last day they give you a free rides pass.
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 June 2017
Stampede provides a good stepping stone for future job opportunities. Being straight out of high school searching for a job was a hard thing to do, but the people employed me for the 2017 stampede year. I didn't need a lot of qualifications.
Usher at Grandstand (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 June 2017
I worked as an usher at Grandstand. Great place to meet different people. Although got busy at times when guests flood into the area at the last minute, it's quite relax and got to watch free shows once thing got settled. Never was a fan of rodeo or chuck wagon but started to find it exciting. Went online at home to learn a bit more of the races and found it a interesting race indeed.
never bored as new and different challenges from guest everyday
the 3 hours break in between shifts made the day way too long
USHER (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 May 2017
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.
Event Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 April 2017
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!
