Admissions Associate 2017 review
Admissions Associate (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 5 December 2017
I worked at Canada's Wonderland as an Admission Associate for the 2017 season. It was a great experience as I got to improve my skills for future jobs. I have met great co-workers in this department, some of which became good friends. You will meets lots of people in this department, some of which you will talk beyond work and when it ends. It was very flexible in this department in which time off requests are granted and easy to switch shifts. The downside to admissions is that when it rains, you get sent home or your shift gets cancelled. Also you face the risk of being moved to ticket taking if you are working in seasons pass (which mind you, ticket taking is boring if there are no guests). And, when its cold outside, brr good luck at ticket taking! It certainly was in the beginning of the season. The team leads this year could have done better in management skills (except for one and he did a fantastic job). Admissions is great for a one season experience, as the job can be repetitive later in the season. Overall, it was a great experience and I am thankful for it despite some rude guests. Some are good too, that's all part of customer service. I am currently deciding if I may return for the 2018 season as I will have commitments next summer, we will see!
P.S. Guests will yell at you for the price of parking and tickets, great piece of advice, don't let it affect you and keep your professionalism.
Free entry to park on days off, meet great people, flexible, builds great experience
rude guests, shift cancelled or sent home during rainy days, can be moved around, when its slow time hurts
