Great Environment for a Temporary position
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Vancouver BCOctober 15, 2015
It was a great position to work while I was looking for a full time job as well as while when I was working at the salon.
I was the cashier as well as barker, we interacted with the guests while the show was on intermissions and before and after the show ended.
It was a fun place to work, I really enjoyed worked and meeting new people. To this day I am still really good friends with a lot of the people I have meet.
I also worked for the company twice while they where in Vancouver

Beautiful on the Outside, Ugly on the Inside...
HR Advisor IT systems (Former Employee), Montréal, qcOctober 5, 2015
I have spent 5 years there. People are very proud to be part of this company however, at what cost...stress, mismanagement, big turnover (people don't get fired, they quit). I don't want to minimize its success however, some context need to be explained.Most VP's haven't talk to each other for...years and everyone is fighting for his own little kingdom. Most offices look likes government offices quite surprising for a creative company.

Un employeur exceptionel
Directeur des services multimédias (Former Employee), Montréal, QCJuly 6, 2015
Pros: Projets très stimulants
Cons: Travail stressant à l'occasion
Je viens de terminer un emploi au Cirque du Soleil où j’ai créé le Service Multimédia corporatif. J’ai assuré le
design des locaux et des services techniques et j’ai géré ce département pendant près de 6 ans. Travailler pour
le Cirque du Soleil demande un haut sens des responsabilités, imputabilité au niveau des horaires et des
budgets et de pouvoir communiquer avec clarté et précision.
J’ai produit plusieurs captations vidéo de spectacles, dans plusieurs pays; j’ai l’habitude de relever des défis et
m’adapter aux conditions et prérequis.

Le siège social de Montréal est un véritable campus où travaillent 1000 personnes. Le milieu de travail est motivant et créatif. L'entreprise sait comment motiver et maintenir un esprit d'équipe et de société.

Le plus difficile aspect du travail au Cirque est la politique associée aux multiples niveaux et départements. Mon travail me demandait de connaitre la structure de l'organisation et de négocier avec l'ensemble pour offrir les services multimédias.

L'aspect le plus intéressant de mon travail était les projets motivants et créatifs qui m'ont amené aux quatre coins de la planète. C'était aussi la grande camaraderie avec mes collègues et l'ensemble des employés au Cirque.

Very impressive company and dedicated team of employees
Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 13, 2015
I represented Infiniti Canada which was one of their biggest sponsors. I managed a team who was required to bring brand awareness to Infiniti before each show and during intermission. I found that the show was run like a very well-oiled machine and was extremely impressive.

Extraordinary work environment
Tour Security Manager (Former Employee), Quebec City, QCApril 7, 2015
Pros: Everything is included while on tour
Cons: Being on the road for eleven months a year
My time with Cirque du Soleil was possible the best time of my life so far. A day at cirque is an experience on it's own.
we had a full kitchen with four chefs and amazing food while on site. we worked every week end and the job atmosphere is unique. I considered myself lucky and blessed to have been a member of the cirque du soleil family.
because of the uniqueness of the company, the best and worst part of the job are the same...the traveling part of it. you would basically live in hotels or corporate apartments all the time and had almost no time to spend home with family and friends.
I only decided to stop because I want to attend law school and could not do it online.

Unforgettable experience at Cirque du Soleil
Project Coordinator (Current Employee), Montréal, QCJanuary 18, 2013
I have been working for Cirque as a project coordinator for over a year. I must admit this was my greatest professional experience where I combined my passion for planning/coordinating with the most stimulating environment. Implementing Concur travel& expense system and coordinating (and leading) other financial projects, not only made me grow as a professional, but also made me realize that without my passion for cirque, the results would not be the same.

Exciting and fun workplace at the circus
VIP Hostess (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 11, 2013
Pros: free food, great people, great show
Cons: sore feet at the end of the day
A typical day at work required preparing leaving home early. By the time I get to work I would meet up with my coworkers along the way. we would meet our supervisor and debrief before the shift started. During the shift we would prepare merchandise, clean and review the specifics about the different clients that would be in each section. As the tent opens all guests would be greated with a smile and given and lanyard. We would answer questions about the tent and circus and make sure each participant was happy.

I learned a lot about professionalism and timing. I always had to have a smile on my face even if my day was not going so well. In the end it was great though. I met alot of great people and I am still friends with a few of my co-wokers.

The hardest part about my job was dealing with my shoes. They weren't the best shoes but at the time I couldn't afford new ones, but I made the best of it.

The best part of the show was meeting new people and seeing the show.

VIP Host (Former Employee), Calgary, ABOctober 6, 2012
Pros: getting to meet & talk to tons of people, from all over the world. good hours & getting paid weekly. gaining experience with hospitality work.
Cons: that cirque only stays in calgary for a month, every one or two years.
The 'Tapis Rouge' tent is the 'VIP' tent at Cirque Du Soleil; people pay allot of extra money just to experience it. There's five star food & five star service. But we only had a certain amount of time to get everything ready in between shows & breaks so it was definitely one of the most fast paced environments I've ever worked in. My managers were great, they knew exactly what to do to make everything perfect even with the little amount of time they had to put it all together. But all in all it was an awesome experience.
