A very Hard Job
Groom (Former Employee) –  Sutton, QCJuly 17, 2016
Working at Cavalia was very tough. But you learn many things and after working there you become a better person. The hardest part of this job is it is very labor intensive. There is only one break during the day and that is one hour for lunch.
Pros
Amazing horses
Cons
Very labor intensive

Terrible place to work with horrible managerial staff
Box Office Agent (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MBNovember 25, 2015
Under compensated, overworked, managers awful. Since they're a travelling show they don't really care about the local staff.
Manager didn't even realize that he had to give us a break after 5 hours. A lot of micro-managing in a very small space.
Lack of training- employees had to learn from each others and from trial and error.
Only pro was getting to see the show for free
Pros
Get to see the show free, free souvenir shirt and program after work
Cons
No breaks, terrible managerial staff, zero care for local staff.

Owners have no respect for employees
Director (Current Employee) –  MontrealMay 3, 2014
Co-workers were great, travel and perks were awesome. Management and owners of cavalia don't care about staff or horses. Don't buy what they tell you- it isn't all about the horses. They are like any other circuses and I assure you, the horses suffer from boredom, over work and being in a stall 23 hours a day. Not a good life for them!!!! If you love horses, DON'T GO TO THE SHOW AND SUPPORT THIS CRUELTY!
Pros
travel
Cons
animal cruelty, no respect for staff

Pour l'amour des chevaux
Palefrenier (Former Employee) –  SuttonOctober 31, 2013
Fait le faire pour l'amour des chevaux car c'est pas du tout payant salaire minimum sans augmentations ni avantages sociaux. La propriétaire est très exigeante mais les chevaux sont traités aux petits soins. Énorme roulement de personnel. Mauvaise gestion des ressources humaines mais les chevaux sont merveilleux et le travail très agréable et physique.
Pros
les chevaux
Cons
salaire
