Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Whitehorse, YT – 8 June 2016
A typical day work was good, long hours, lots of work to do, stayed busy.
I learned more how to be fast at my job, work well with others,
Management, well I did enjoy working with one of my managers, the other not so much. But I did like my job overall.
My co-workers were awesome, I liked working with them very much, they had a good sense of humor, awesome personalities. They made working that much better.
The hardest part of my job was all the laundry we had to get done in just a couple days.
The most enjoyable part of my job was working with everyone, they all had such good moods for working, everyone in camp was so friendly, the food, the food was good, loved waking up to having breakfast cooked, or supper every night cooked and really good.

Cafeteria- CSR Team Leader (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 24 January 2017
typical day at work: you come in, you go to the change room to get changed, you come up, you sign in for your work shift. you prepare the salad, soups, temperature of food, dish washing station and overall preparedness of equipment. You have 1/3 positions, either you will be in the dish room either washing or helping putting the supplies away and scrubbing. Either you will be serving food and checking on temperature and making sure nothing runs out, if they do, you are responsible to refill it. or you will be clicking in how many students come in as well as swiping their student card and helping maintain supplies such as milk, salads, soup, and keeping the cafeteria clean.
what i learned: adapt, work fast pace, keep busy because then clean up at the end of the day just because easier. you do learn WHIMIS, quality control on equipments, how to check food temperature and making sure everything is clean
management: is poor, theyre strict. i remember being yelled at when i was head dish washer because i was talking while working with my co worker as we were both independently working together and being told i wasnt allowed to talk despite no one can hear us in a noisy dishroom. Managers dont really take the time to learn your name, your story, they come in and make sure everything in order and leaves.
hardest part of the job: just when it gets really busy but you get used to the rush. and maybe sometimes the workers are unhappy and work place drama can occur easily
most enjoyable: the food, everyday is a different meal. so you never have to cook or physically paymore... for your food. it comes off at 12 dollars in your bi weekly paycheck. so eat as much as you want!less
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 November 2016
I worked for the catering company sodexo in a rural camp just outside Fort St.John B.C and it was the best job i've had thus far. I worked with great people who were team players and great work ethics such as my own, unfortunately the site closed down and we all parted ways. I feel blessed for having have met a great camp family and hope to find a job in my near future working with great people again :-)
