First Job
Line Cook (Former Employee), Vaughan, ONApril 28, 2016
Pros: You can get some free passes for friends.

It was a simple first job producing pizza. It was fun at times and was a fast passed environment mostly because we were providing a product ( food).

A good place to make friends, and gain a first-time work experience.
Food/Beverage Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 25, 2016
Pros: Free entry into the park and employee discount.
Cons: Long hours, very strict rules and regulations.
Met some really great people. Work can be really exhausting and tiring. Area supervisors are really strict, uniform is not comfortable at all. It can get really hectic, especially during the day, and customers lack patience cause of the heat. Overall, it's an okay experience.

Great first job
Admissions Associate (Former Employee), Maple, ONApril 24, 2016
A typical day at Canada's Wonderland could consist of anything from working in a parking toll booth to letting guests in the front gate. It could be either selling tickets or precessing seasons passes. At Canada's Wonderland I learned how to manage money in relatively large quantities and consistently balanced my till. Th hardest part of the job was to deal with the many unpleasant costumers.

Haunted House Maze Attendant (Former Employee), Vaughan, ONApril 17, 2016
Pros: weekly awarding of the best maze attendant of the night, a friendly and learning environment for people with no job experience
Cons: no opportunity for mobilization for a higher position, mainly because the job was seasonal
working at Wonderland meant working around people of many responsibilities that encouraged a team effort to maintain a successful day on the job. The job of a maze attendant along with many others were seasonal during the month of Halloween. People in the particular maze where assigned a job that ensured the proper functioning of the maze due to all members who contributed.
working in an environment that directly targeted thrill for the enjoyment of the customers made the job very exciting because of the enthusiasm that went into the job which in-turn made for a friendly co worker experience.

Great team but management isn't always on top of things
Ride Operator (Former Employee), Vaughan, ONApril 3, 2016
Pros: Working with children
Cons: Long hours, sometimes short lunch breaks, unorganized
Some days you get long hours, management wasn't always on top of the schedule and didn't remember days you couldn't work. Sometimes lunch breaks were shortened because schedules weren't written ahead of time during work period. Team management in the beginning was unorganized and uncooperative.

Cash Control Area Supervisor (Current Employee), Vaughan, ONApril 3, 2016
Pros: Fun work environment
Cons: Long work hours that could go very late
Good place to start working and gives plenty of opportunity to gain experience and potentially get a few promotions under your belt. I am lucky to be in a good department, but have been told that the experience is more negative in other departments. Would be nice if there was better pay/benefits.

Food & Beverage - Service / Cashier (Former Employee), Vaughan, ONMarch 4, 2016
Pros: Got to meet new people from different cultures
Cons: long hours very little pay
Sign in at beginning of day, clean work area, then prepare food, then take food orders.

I learned how to use their old cash registers as well as their new ones.

The managers were very helpful and understanding never judgmental.
Co-workers always liked to help with each area that needed to be worked on.
Hardest part was the amount of hours you put into a day/week and the pay being barely enough to travel back and forth from work and use for daily life.

The most enjoyable part of working there was working with the managers and co-workers and seeing all the customers enjoying themselves.
