Very difficult place to work
Guest Services Representative (Former Employee), Calgary, ABFebruary 19, 2013
Pros: fun job
Cons: terrible management
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.

Nice Co-workers and Supervisor
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 11, 2012
Pros: 50% of purchases on the grounds. prizes for doing a good job.
Cons: standing and walking for long hours
Work usually started at 8 am in the morning. It varied most of the time but normally it was an early shift. We worked till the evening. The Calgary stampede is a 12 day job, so this was a routine for about 12 days. I loved working at the stampede. The staffs and supervisor were super friendly and willingly to help you if you had any problem with your – more... schedule or just problems in general. There was a specific team I worked with everyday and by the end of Stampede, we became like a family. The teamwork was impeccable. Everyone helped each other when necessary. The hardest part of my job was probably dealing with customers when it got extremely busy. – less

Unprofessional and incompetent management create a negative culture.
Skilled professional (Former Employee), CalgarySeptember 1, 2012
Pros: occasional discounts on western clothing
Cons: the work environment, culture and management
The Calgary Stampede is one of the worst places I have worked in my entire career. It may be a fun place to work as a temporary employee during the 10 days of Stampede, but as a professional employee, it is a waste of your talents and time. I resigned within my first year of working there because the management are completely incompetent, bordering – more... on abusive. I discourage anyone who is thinking of working there based on my own experience and what I have seen taking place within the months since I resigned. Certainly do not work in the Human Resources department which has had more than 100 percent turnover in the past 2 years. – less

not a bad place to work part time but full time is not an option.
Sanitary Engineer (Current Employee), Calgary, AlbertaJuly 24, 2012
Pros: easy job.
Cons: no hours.
Don't work here full time. The pay is not great, the hours are awful full time or part time.? The staff is friendly but you got to be out of your mind to work during the month of July ( that's when stampede is at it's peek ).
Overall I would rate it a 2 out of 5 because the hours are so inconsistent.
