Ride Operator and Greeter (Former Employee) – Maple, ON – 18 May 2017
Working at Canada's Wonderland is a perfect summer job, they pay good and give you lots of hours to work. Greeting can be hard, because you are expected to stop anyone who cuts in line, and they do have employees disguised as guests line cut to see if you will remove them. The reason it can be rather difficult is when it's a group of 5 teenagers and you need to remove them yourself. You have the option to call security, but the blazed through the security numbers and how to work the phone during my training so I never remembered them.

You come in to work late afternoon, and are immediately overwhelmed by the number of people present at the park. You clock in, and get to work, whether it be helping at dairy queen or at the funnel cake shop. Lines are usually always long. Supervisors are great, the management is decent. The hardest part about this job dealing with the insane line ups for food, as well as, working until late at night.

Canada's Wonderland was a fun and enjoyable place to come to everyday as well as enjoy. If your shift finished early you could still go and enjoy the park with some friends. The tasks required were simple and fun to do with coworkers. In the summer time sometimes it would get really hot but the team would be right there with you trying to get through as well.
The management and supervisors were atrocious. Irresponsibility and immaturity are can understatement to say the least. Sometimes it felt like the coworkers were running the place. Customers would ask to questions and they would refuse.
Canada's Wonderland has been around for years and families from around the world come to enjoy, it was a great learning experience and my description of management is not for the whole park, however I would never go into that department again if I were to go back.

Canada's Wonderland makes you wonder (pun intended) whether or not the nonsense they make employees do is legal. Especially in the food and beverage department. Managers are completely rude with a few exceptions and all the superiors just seem to be in the worst mood possible all the time. One of the most idiotic things that I have seen working at wonderland is that food that is leftover is all thrown out. And if a manager sees you eating food, you get fired. No questions asked, but the managers and superiors can eat as much as they want in front of everyone and rub it in their faces. All the employees are dead tired from working long shifts in hot weather, but managers can sit around eat food all day in front of you.

Working at Wonderland, with being a tourist attraction, required us to maximize our use of all skills as employees. It taught us how to handle different situations in a professional manner and meet sale goals. The management, however, was very poor. The long hours and salary was good.
No social life, lack of professionalism by management
Food and Beverage Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 26 April 2017
Management is very unprofessional in the Food and Beverage Department. Lots of favouritism. No balance between work life and social life. If you like extreme amounts of hours and no free time, this is the job for you. Some places don't have air conditioning, which is quite hard to deal with because the summers get so hot.

Wonderland is great if your are trying to make a lot of money, they give you a lot of hours especially in the rides department. I made more than $800 every paycheck. Although the money is great, this is not the job for you if you do not like being outside, or cannot stand for long periods of time.

I have nothing but good things to say about this job. The atmosphere is great to work in, my co-workers and supervisors were easy to get along with, the hours were reasonable, and you could go on rides before your shift.

Canadas Wonderland is a great student job to hold. It taught to the value of hard earned money, and time management. You worked long hours therefore the worklife balance was tough, but i believe this student job taught me a lot in terms of time management, and sustaining a job.
