Behemoth Ride Attendant (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON5 February 2018

A lot of group activities, Free tickets, discount at certain park stores, meet new people everyday

Long hours, Work in rain or hot sun, cold

Awesome place for 1st job
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON30 January 2018
Worked outside checking people onto rides. Wonderland has a quota of how many rides to do per hour, so their is pressure to work faster, but no incentives when goals are met. Always bring water, hat and sunscreen.
Pros
free rides, free carnival games, great people

Good to learn various mechanic tools
Assistant Mechanic (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON24 January 2018
If you are willing to learn many kinds of mechanical tools and use them, it is a quite good work place.
They provide enough safety protection to work.
You can have a chance to do welding and grinding if you want.

Superintendent quite respects employees' opinions.

FYR, when I worked in summer 2017, 7 days continuous work, 3 days continuous off, 7 days continuous work and 4 days continuous off. Also, you can request (a) dayoff(s) if you need. So, you could set your travel plan.
Pros
Easy to set the vacation plan (Continuous 4 days off possible)
Cons
Too early to start the day (Arrival before 5 AM)

Productive and exciting workplace with driven and hardworking people
Cash Control Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON24 January 2018
Recording revenues in TMS, stocking up floats in the vault, visiting various departments to collect the cash revenues and distributing floats to various departments when required was a typical day at work. Being a cash control assistant, I learned the importance of effective communication with fellow team members. I also learned that with proper management, work can be productive and effective instead of just being an activity. The hardest part of the job was ensuring that the books were balanced as any variance would greatly affect the statements. This job was also effective in terms of networking with people as the managers and supervisors were from accounting and finance industry.
Pros
Free rides, Free access to CN tower and Ripley's Aquarium
Cons
Irregular hours

Rides Associate (Former Employee) –  1 Canada's Wonderland Drive, Vaughan, ON L6A 1S624 January 2018
amazing work place with positive people. testing rides in the morning to ensure they are running properly before the park opens. once guests are arriving we have to ensure the safety of all our guest weather they are on the rides or not. checking all safety restraints to make sure guest are well secured on the rides and to ensure the guest have a great time.

Good place to work to get your foot in the door and start your experience as a teenager.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 January 2018
You gain a lot of skills at wonderland but hours are long and very demanding. I learned a lot about cash and customer service, but you may be on your feet all day for very long periods of time. If you work at a restaurant with a refresh station, expect to be out in the sun for a long time, and bees are a hazard .
Pros
Pay Is sustainable.
Cons
Long hours.

Good Starter Job
MERCHANDISE SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON24 December 2017
This was my first job as a 15 year old. It was extremely strenuous, and management did not really show empathy for us younger workers. It was not the best place to work, but it did teach me a lot about the work field.
