Shiftwork is not fun here (only 10hrs between shifts)
Permanent Full Time Food and Beverage Server (Former Employee) –  Ajax28 February 2014
The Ajax location is very busy which is nice for those who like to work in a fast paced environment.
Your fellow front line team members are amazing.
They have an excellent benefits package.

However, part-time employees are expected to work up to 40hrs a week as business demands it (usually 6months of the year or more).
It is difficult to move up within this company because management plays favourites and hires their friends from other departments and locations.
OLG policy is very strict so be prepared to face some of the most ridiculous and non-sensical rules.
The most difficult part of the job are the hours. It is shift work, so you work a combination of days, evenings, and overnights. Legally, they only have to give you 10hrs between scheduled shifts and they OFTEN do this.

It is a mindless job that pays well.
Pros
excellent benefits, great coworkers
Cons
shift work, poor work/life balance, rigid policies

Lack of training
Housekeeper (Former Employee) –  Flamborough, ON10 January 2018
Flamborough downs lack of training, coffee breaks more should I say smoke breaks are important. Supervisor needs better communication skills. HR dept has not a clue of what is happening.
Wouldn't work there again or recommend anyone else
Pros
Long breaks with one online supervisor
Cons
Long hours not good pay
