Cashier/Teller (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONOctober 3, 2015
I had to count cash at start of the day, set up machines for staff, open safe hand out floats...Turn on channels for the racing. My job was to service the public in a timely manner and be accurate with requests...End of the day balance cash, take all floats from other employees and place into safe in sealed number bag...I was to be prompt, on time and polite to customers at all time.
Pros
free food, good salary, good bosses...and co- workers

getting to work in rush hour and short notice calls

Paddock Attendant (Current Employee) –  Campbellville, ONDecember 19, 2014
I really enjoy working here because theres a lot of really nice people and the pay is good. each day is the same set up but the outcomes are different, you make great relationships with not only the employees but also the customers. there are long hours and its a bit of a drive to get there but its worth it once you are there. i really enjoy the people and the environment

Mutual Teller (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONSeptember 13, 2014
serviing and selling tickers to customers. learning how to deal with customers, ,Management is good to work for as they listen to what you need. there is a lot of emplyees that your know and don't, and you get to know who there are which is nice. Dealing with irate customers which take it out on you when its not your fault, so the company has taught you how to deal with them. Being at this job taught me how a lot of customers skills which now I can provide with another company that I would work for.
Pros

Cons
never the same schedule each week

Office Admin (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ONMarch 10, 2014
Admin work and customer service, several different skills were learned. Management was nice and helpful. Co-workers were independent and worked well as a team. Hardest part was the commute.

False advertisement
Market place server (Former Employee) –  Campbellville ontarioNovember 17, 2013
I responded to this ad and was told that they have 3 positions available one full time and 2 part time but the part time employees got full time hours so it did not matter what position I got. I quit a full time job to start there because it was more money. When I started I only got maybe 20 hrs a week spread out among 5 to 6 days it was ridiculous, it was pointless to drive into work for a 4 or 5 hr shift. They can't offer any new employee a full time position because of their union. The employees that are there longer take the full time position. Beware if your quitting a full time job for this they won't be able to offer you it.
Cons
poorly managed

A typical day at Woodbine includes getting yelled multiple times a day; co-workers will get others in trouble to save themselves from looking bad and the overall kitchen is poorly managed
