Ice Skating Instructor (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 30 April 2016
nice place but it wasn't the best to work at, the kitchen never had any food available and it was embarrassing constantly telling people we're out of products... the atmosphere was nice but its out of business anyways
CASHIER AT ERIN MILLS TWIN ARENA (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 25 April 2016
A typical day at Erin Mills Arena would involve doing the mandatory opening and closing cleaning and food preparation tasks. It would also include cash handling and customer service experience. I have improved my communication skills through this job which I believe will continue to benefit me throughout my working career. The management and other co-workers at Erin Mills Arena all make the job more enjoyable and an inviting place to work.
Lifeguard/Swim Instructor (Former Employee) – Malton, ON – 6 April 2016
Job was straight forward, you show up, get out there and teach for 3-4 hours. Then guard for another 1.5 hours (rotational shift to get your break in). Management was good, somewhat disconnected from staff due to location and job requirements. The hardest part of the job tends to be dealing with delinquents, or trying to move up in the management chain, as almost everyone is qualified to move up, so the line is quite long. Co-workers were great, very friendly and helpful people. Always a good time. Most enjoyable part of the job is definitely hearing back from the children/adults/parents etc. and hearing that you really made a difference.
Nice to be able to hop in on a hot day.
Breaks we're never frequent enough or long enough.
Assistant Camp Leader/ Leader in Training (LIT) (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 29 February 2016
Everyday was great, working with children and fellow leaders, setting up activities and helping other camp leaders out. Co-operation with others and teaming up to solve a problem was a key theme in this job, but that built a lot of strong bonds between the leaders and campers. By far the hardest part of the job was saying goodbye to all of the amazing campers and leaders at the end of each week, but the next week would have a whole new array of energetic and playful children.
Fun workplace and sporty environment in which I thrive in
Sport Instructor (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 January 2016
My title is a sport instructor. My job is to simply teach basic mechanics, skills, movements and facilitate the game of play for whatever sport I am assigned which can vary from badminton to soccer. I have learned that everyone learns at a different pace and everyone has different skills levels. You must accommodate to them and be flexible in the way you instruct. Management is fairly organized and reliable. Emails are responded to quickly and issues are dealt with accordingly.
