Awesome membership board, great atmosphere.
Bartender (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 July 2012
I learned at this job to work independantly. A majority of the time I was the only staff in the building. That has taught me to figure out the ropes on my own.
The idea behind the Royal Canadian Legion is absolutly amazing. Taking care of those who served to protect and fight for our freedom. Not just those who served, but their families as well. Meeting all kinds of vetrans, and hearing their incredible stories was so overwhelming. Words cannot describe.
Managment in this particular branch of the Royal Canadian Legion was poor. There practically was no managment. In my opinion, she did not have proper training to run a business.
The hardest part (but, most rewarding) was hearing all the war vetrans' stories. They were heart-warming, and heart breaking all at the same time. The biggest thing I know that I had to get over, was that these men and women are all people, just like you and I. That's the way they want to be treated, not like heroes.
The most enjoyable, was the members. Hands down. The people that came into the establishment is what made my job so great. Getting to know every member, remembering their drink of choice and having it ready for them when they walk in the door.
