Fun work environment along with others
Ticket Seller (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 4, 2014
Pros: free entry until last shift
Cons: only 2 weeks (temporary seasonal job)
There are slow times like in in the morning but once it become 5$ after 5pm there's a rush full of people in line for tickets but you're not on your own, you always have the support and help from co-workers and supervisors so you're not on your own during overwhelming situations. Amazing co-workers and team working alongside each other. If only CNE – more... was longer than 2 weeks, I would love to work here all year round. – less

Volunteer (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 2, 2014
Pros: free access to the park after work
Cons: 5 hour shifts in the boiling hot sun
Greeted guests at gates, handed out flyers. Helped customers with directions. I learned how important customers can be to a business and gained knowledge on how to handle customers at different situations. Management were really and the volunteers were treated well. Co-workers like the management were really nice and friendly. The most hardest part – more... of the job was standing in the sun on very hot days doing the required tasks. Getting to know my co-workers and making guests happy. – less

Kids World Attendant- Art Studio (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 23, 2014
Working at the EX, was a great time I got to work in a fun work environment that constantly kept me busy at all times. I learned how to multi- task, have good time management throughout my shifts, and solve problems that occured from time to time. The management was good, and a typical day at work would be helping children with arts and crafts ( doing – more... activities with them), cleaning up several times throughout the day, etc. The hardest part was multi-tasking and dealing with problems for example kids wanting more "beads" for the bracelets they made but only a certain amount could be given. Overall working at the EX was great and i would recommend it to anyone in need of a fun summer job. – less

Children's Area Attendant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 26, 2014
Working at the Exhibition you are constantly in contact with new people everyday, especially children and parents. You have to be very welcoming and constantly working hard to make sure that everyone who comes by is enjoying their experience. A typical day at work is a 7 hour shift, starting either at 9:45AM, 1:00PM, or 4:00PM. The job I worked was – more... a children's play area so there were a number of stations. You would work at one station for around 30 minutes to an hour and then rotate positions. There was also a half hour lunch break. The hardest part of the job was probably running, standing, and crouching for the entire shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was the atmosphere and the people you work with. I learned a lot about working with customers and children while at this position. – less

Productive work area with a great view of the Air Show.
Food Sales (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 16, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: the loud roar of the planes during the air show
Working at one of the food tents during the Air Show Weekend at the Ex is a good experience learner. We helped with setting up the area, and my job was to help with preparing the hamburgers and hot dogs. There's already someone working the grill, but when the meats are cooked, we put the respective buns on the meats, put the burgers/hot dogs in paper – more... holders, then give them to the customers. For me, the hardest part of the job is the clean up/set up. While it doesn't take a while, we have to do this for security measures since we're not 100% sure the security guards will watch the booths after closing. The best part of the job, is that we get to eat as much burgers and hot dogs as we want. Since it was only for the Air Show Weekend, we only worked about 3-4 days, but it was still a good experience in my book. – less

Suppliers Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 30, 2013
A typical day at work was making sure that there was always stock to in the food vendor truck to make burgers, fries and hot dogs. I learned to be more independent, as I had to use my own initiative when to restock the fridge in the food vendor truck. The hardest part of the job was running up and down to the stock truck and the food vendor truck. Overall, – more... it was a good experience and a lot of fun. – less

Ticket Taker/Barrier Attendant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 13, 2013
Pros: free snacks
A typical day at work involved dealing with the customers directly and handling their payments. I would then clean the floors and possibly dust off the stock. I was also the stock boy for the company. I learned how to use a cash register and how to handle customers properly. My coworkers were amazing. Just fun to be around. The hardest part of the job – more... would be dealing with the ungrateful and bad customers, the ones that would argue and fight about things. The most enjoyable part of the job was actually dealing with the customers on a personal level. – less

Ticket Taker/Barrier Attendant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 13, 2013
Pros: fun
Cons: minimum wage
A typical day at work included taking customer admissions. We would stand at the gates and admit customers. I learned how to use the ticket scanner which is similar to an RF Scanner. The management was fun, mostly because we were around the same age group. My co-workers were awesome because we were around the same age group and had no problems conversing – more... with one another. The hardest part of the job would be, sometimes it was boring because we would have no customers for a hour or so. The most enjoyable part of the job was actually going on break to rest our feet. – less
