Overnight Custodian (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 December 2013
The job is pretty hard but it's possible to do within reason. After a long period of time working you eventually learn how to be efficient, co-workers will help you to get through the day. The hardest part of the job is having to clean up after the local team won the game on that previous night. It is fun to work there.
Snack Vendor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 October 2017
The BMO stadium staircases are extremely tight and narrow for a vendor to be walking up and down while holding a 30lb. box strapped around your neck. My manager was helpful however, an individual who was part of the MLSE staff who I did not know, made a rude and unnecessary comment towards me during my shift. The atmosphere is busy and full of crazed fans.
Gaining entrance to the game being played
Carrying an extremely heavy box of snacks and drink throughout the entire shift
In-Seat Service (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 September 2017
Being able to watch the sports is great. However, constantly walking up flights of stairs is not. It is hard to get time off here and you are not able to send in "availability". You are able to choose the shifts you want to work, but will get scheduled even if you didn't choose the shift. Not allowed switching shifts. Short hours which is great for students, not that good for when you need time off for exams.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 September 2017
It's a boys club. No room for advancement and they take heavy advantage of their employees. You are not paid for working weekends, and there is no work life balance. Its okay to get the company name on your resume, but I wouldn't recommend staying longer than 2 years at this company.
Concessions (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 September 2017
I quite enjoyed working for MLSE. the atmosphere was fun and most of the people I got to work with were amazing. The downside for me would be the seniority system and not getting a lot of work in the first months of working there.
Good pay, interesting work but unpredictable schedule.
Concession Attendant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 August 2017
Unpredictable schedule. May be required for a shift that you cannot make. Although useful, MLSE's seniority system seems to get in the way for a lot of little things such as who does what on a specific day. Staff who have been there longer always get to choose. Bright side is decent pay and very lively place to work so it always remains interesting.
Concessions Attendant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 April 2017
The job is event-based. The cool thing is you can make your schedule to your own preference. However when playoffs come, you will most likely get required even when you can't work it for school or other reasons. A good job for people that are either in school, or doing this as a side job.
Snack Vendor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 December 2016
I had a great time working for this company and had fun with each day that I got to work there. My job was to sell snacks which I was very good at doing. It was always fun selling snacks and helping the company money. At the end of night I would go back to the Vending room and cash out. The way the cash out system works is I would take out all the money I made on that night, pay the managers what I owe them and the rest is all yours along with all the tips that I made.
Selling snacks and having free views of concerts and games
Security coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 December 2016
I greatly enjoy working here because of the unique events experienced and the ability to impact a wide array of visitors and colleagues. I work with a great team and enjoy every shiftime I work regardless of the challenges faced at times. I hope to continue working in this job sector if given the opportunity.
CO-OP Student (Former Employee) – 50 Bay Stree Toronto Ontario – 30 May 2016
MLSE is the place to be at if you love sports. It is a very team oriented company. I worked in multiple departments and from personal experience all of them did a lot to teach me about how the daily operations went.
Work hard, play hard mentality..."Left hand" has no idea what the "right hand" is doing.
IT Implementation Coordinator (Former Employee) – Air Canada Center, ON – 15 April 2016
From an IT standpoint, I understand the organization was trying to get a handle on their problem of being uniquely understaffed, while having entire teams bear too much work, while other teams go under-utilized.
Food & Beverage Supervisor (Current Employee) – Toronto On – 6 July 2015
My reasonability is to setup the beverage stand I will be managing to ensure my employees can complete service during the game successfully. Document inventory prior, order missing product and verify floats for cashier before gates open. During the sporting event ensure all the policies are being followed by your employees and alcohol is shut down at the standard times. Verify income from each cashier and complete end count to make sure everything matches with the reports before locking up.
