Rides Operator (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 15 October 2017
Typical day at work would be from 9am-10pm. Super long days, management over rid policies. Treated like a piece of garbage. ONly plus about working here is benefits, you get in for free at CN Tower, Ripleys, Niagra,, ect. Other than that, not the best environment, no room for improvement.
Games Associate (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 14 October 2017
A typical day at work consisted of me advertising games to the people in the park, I'd go on the microphone the majority of the time and successfully persuade costumers to play my game. I learned how to better work as a team and as well as working individually, I also learned how to properly manage the cashier. The hardest part was working for many hours in the cold outside, the most enjoyable part of the job was persuading the customers to actually play the games, it was fun interacting with customers and meeting new people.
Maze Attendant (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 6 October 2017
It was overall very enjoyable. Sometimes i would have to make sure i did not get assaulted by very rude customers. I found it diificult due to the fact that i would stand in one corner for about 5 hours straight.

Sales Associate, Team Lead, Supervisor (Former Employee) – laugh – 19 September 2017
Canada's Wonderland was my first job. Working as a games associate for one year I was quickly promoted to team lead then supervisor all within two years. As a supervisor, I was responsible for up to, or more than $20,000 cash daily. I also oversaw 20-30 employees, running breaks and creating schedules for my staff members weekly. I learned how to run an entire area on my own, deal with irate customers and manage my time wisely all while maintaining a high level of customer service.With the help of management I was able to succeed as a supervisor and train new supervisors for three consecutive years. Working at one of Canada's highest tourist attractions it got very busy very fast and that taught me how to work in fast paced environments and maximize my time as best as I could. Working at an amusement park I always met fun, positive people from different countries and that was always my favourite part.

Seasonal Ride Operator (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 25 August 2017
Canada's Wonderland is a great place to work if you're simply looking for a summer job. Unless you're the type of person to jump without question, advancement within the company is highly unlikely. Ride groups are a tight knit environment of staff who become family throughout the season.
