worked with friends and goof off environment
Stewardess (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABSeptember 9, 2013
Pros: lunch provided
Cons: long hours, very low pay.
Typical work day was putting on our jackets/ chef shirts, and then heading down to the dish pit/ kitchen, to find out what we needed to bring up to the banquet halls. we'd carry racks for putting glasses in and carts for plates. and sometimes the chefs would get us to push there portable ovens up to the banquet areas. Then once we got up there we'd – more... set up our clearing tables behind the banquet, so that the public does not see us dealing with there dirty dishes. Once the event would start some of us would be chosen to plate pull, which was pulling the already made plates of food out of a hot oven.
Once they were all pulled out we'd start clearing or plates and pours out drinks and putting them in there racks. We'd continue on doing this until we had all of the eatery ready to pull back down stairs to the dish pit.
Hardest part standing and walking for any where between 8 to 10 hours and the handling of hot plates.
Most enjoyable would be the working with friends staff were friendly. – less

Making Memories
Guest Services Host (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABFebruary 26, 2013
Pros: meeting new people and lighting up their face with a smile! it's truly magical.
Cons: minimum wage
There is nothing I like better than to great someone new to a Northlands event and give them the best customer service I can possibly give them. I love how the guests respond and feel like they've rec'd special treatment and that I've given them some little secret tidbit of information that they would never have known otherwise.

Pros: led events for aadac such as christmas parties, united way events, conference galas, and many more

A positive place to work and grow within the organization. It was a continuous learning scale both internally and externally with clients and staff. The most enjoyable part of my day was assisting Albertans and clients with our publications and knowing I was making a difference.

Northlands Park Security Supervisor (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABAugust 27, 2012
Pros: 50% off food, every other weekend off
Cons: two weeks days, two weeks nights
My Days start at 0600 or 1800 hours. Day shifts are slow until 0930 and then busy until shift end. Nights shifts are busy right off the bat and quiet afterwards. The Job is enjoyable, but there is alot to learn. I have seen a change in management over the last two years. I am on my fourth manager since I started six and half years ago. As with any job, – more... this job has had alot of turn over.

This job has taught me to schedule better, to be a better supervisor, how to handle disagreements between staff and how to be more effective in teaching. My report writing has gotten better and I have to give credit to my current manager, she teaches me to the point I understand what she wants. I am still learning. – less

Waitress (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJuly 27, 2012
I learned organizational & timing skills, i.e getting orders out as fast as i can, keeping areas clean for easy access to certain items i needed at our work stations. It was easy to get along with all the staff everyone was friendly. The hardest part was when it got really busy & i would panic but i always got the job done sometimes with help from my – more... awesome co-workers. At the end of the day the panic would all be worth it from the tips i made. – less
