Cashier/Teller (Former Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 3, 2015
Pros: free food, good salary, good bosses...and co- workers
Cons: getting to work in rush hour and short notice calls
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.

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

Pros: good benifits and pension plan
Cons: never the same schedule each week
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.

Prep Cook/Stand Attendant (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 24, 2013
Shifts sometimes fly by at Woodbine with a friendly staff and co-operative management helping you to accomplish your daily tasks on a daily basis. Learning to mass produce product in a fast food environment as well as catering to more niche clientele is a skill in it's own. The customers sometimes get riled up over the gambling nature of the business but it isn't unbearable. Good place to work... lack of advancement oppourtunities will eventually steer you away however.
