Good company
Guest services (Former Employee), Banff, ABJune 2, 2014
Pros: great people
Cons: perpetually late trains
Rocky Mountaineer is a five-star product with respect to what the guests experience on board the train. Sadly, the train is perpetually late throwing the ground staff into an unbalanced, reactionary state of operation.The people who work for the company are hard working and dedicated, for me, that was the most enjoyable part. Management recognize the – more... efforts of their staff. – less

I've worked for worse
Prefer not to say (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCMarch 18, 2014
Pros: you get a lot of free meals
Cons: long hours, disorganised, poor training, can be a stressful environment at times
Overall a moderately decent place to work depending on your department. The train staff love their work and if you're well suited for the long hours, the pay for the onboard personnel is pretty exceptional. Particularly when tips add up.

The management for the most part is good. The VP of Guest Services, however is a difficult woman to work for. You – more... are underpaid, and very under appreciated. She'll pile work on you with disregard. If I was working for a different company I would be making at least five or six dollars more an hour.

For the average employee a 10 or 12 hour work day is pretty standard. – less

Long hours, no job security
Manager, Rockies Guest Destinations (Former Employee), The Canadian RockiesFebruary 19, 2013
Pros: reduced rates on the rocky mountaineer, free uniform, drycleaning and show allowance, good benefit program if you qualify
Cons: very long hours, irregular shifts/days off, no job security
Lots of nice people working here but being a manager in this company will require a lot of long hours, split days off and being on call most of the time. Demands of upper management are high, but support is low. If you're looking for job security, look elsewhere; I completely uprooted my life for this company to get them through some pretty challenging – more... situations only to be laid off at the end of the season. Your efforts will not be appreciated here. – less

It was fun job because you have to have lots energy of
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), Kamloops, BCJuly 7, 2012
Pros: got payed the same day
Cons: longest day but i did not mind at all
I learned how sort out emptys and wash outside/inside windows.

It was kinda like an night shift because i worked from 7pm to 4 or 5am.

The partner I worked with showed me what to do.

The hardest part was workin until 4 or 5am.

I enjoyed the whole job because it was me.
