A lot of team work and building relationships with employees
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 11 November 2018
A typical day was coming to work, walking to my location and getting to work. I learned to be independent in in every station I was, with working on my own and calling for help if needed. The management was very nice and understand of problems and tried their best ti work through them.
Tour Guide (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 22 October 2018
Great place to work seasonally if you are in school or in need of some summer time hours! Customers tend to be very content with their visits and the people are insanely nice! I have no complaints whatsoever about my employment experience at the safari except that I honestly never wanted it to end
Animal Caretaker (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 15 September 2018
I’m so happy I had the opportunity to work here. I got to be a round my favourite animal all day, which was elephants. Also great hands on experience with animals, kind of develops a bond of trust. Another good thing was that I got to help out people who I admire the most who are the elephant handlers where they dedicate their lives in carrying for these majestic creatures. Also great work crew.

Really bad place to work, really boring and mindless, causes severe depression. And the work was just horrible overall really bad management had to shave on maintenance for literally no reason makes no sense at all.
Lobby Staff (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 22 October 2017
Throughout the time I was there, it was extremely enjoyable. The people are great to be around and the environment was amazing. Although they place you on a lot of shifts and they expect you to stay late most of the days you work. Other then that, its an amazing place.

Animal Care Attendant (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 10 February 2017
Seems like a great place, but isn't really. You will get worked hard and compensated little. Supervisors take advantage of the fact that many people want to work there, so they treat you as if you are disposable.
Waterpark Staff Member (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 6 September 2016
Every day I was involved with kids in various ways. I was responsible for measuring their height and if they reached a certain height I was to give them a wristband, I instructed them when and when not to go down the water slides, ensured they were safe at all times and I also had the opportunity to help and play with kids in the ball pit area outside of the water park
Cashier (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 19 April 2016
It was long hours. But it was good hours despite the long standing. The pay was terrible way back then when I worked there however I did not focus on pay. I loved meeting people from all over the world though. I worked terribly long hours with lunch which is illegal.
African Lion Safari (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 9 March 2016
My experience at this place was not as planned, my coworkers were great people and easy to approach. The management staff and supervisors were terrible and I have never worked with more difficult managerial staff before.
