Conversion Crew & Fortlift Operator (Former Employee) – London, ON – 18 May 2018
The working environment at Budweiser Gardens is almost inadequate. Coordinators are often unorganized or go missing to go hang out with friendly co workers in isolated areas to avoid working with the rest of the force. Proper and PROFESSIONAL rules should be enforced upon the conversion crew.

I had multiple friends who worked with me at budweiser gardens who all, including me, quit because the manager for the concession staff was a horrible person. He would never listen to requests for time off, even if given enough time, and cursed out an employee for checking her phone during a shift. Loved the coworkers there, the leaders in the stands were great too, but it was not worth the mental pain of dealing with our manager to continue working there.

Management is very understandable and care for their workers. Typical day at work varies based on what show you are working. There is a variety of shows so you never work the same job. Its great if you like interacting with customers.
Overall it was exciting, and tiring but also attentive. I learned quite a bit on how a work-placement is.

Working at the Budweiser gardens is exciting because it was a new environment for me to be in. I've gained a lot of experience with sales, customers, and patience. The pros of the job are free food and you get to experience fun events such as, seeing Disney characters, monster trucks and more. You always see happy customers and it makes the workplace just that much better. The only con of this job is that, you are on your feet for 10+ hours straight so it can get exhausting. There are usually some people who try to steal food, it's a very crowded place which could make you overwhelmed and cautious. I've gained a lot of experiencing with customers as in, making sure they are happy, making sure they get what they want, and that they have a great time at the event. Working here for me has helped my patience with customers. We have a lot of items to sell, so it could take up to 5 minutes until the customer knows what he/she wants. All the employees were friendly and nice as well. We all made sure everyone was happy and that everything was cleaned up by the end of the day.

I really enjoy working at budweiser gardens. the job is pretty straightforward and the pay is to be expected from a cashier. However, the management isn't very good. I have been working there for a few months now, and I never get e-mailed my schedule, which occasionally causes me to miss shifts, and i never get e-mailed what stand I'm supposed to work at.
Straightforward job, friendly work atmosphere, decent pay
Stand Leader (Current Employee) – London, ON – 20 April 2017
The job is great for someone who hasn't had a job yet and is looking for a good place to get some base knowledge and skills to help in future jobs.
The job is very variable based, some shifts will be super busy because its a large event, some will be slower because its a smaller event. So you have to react effectively to what sort of event is going on that specific day.
good base experience
organization is a little lacking in terms of schedules etc.

A really good work environment. You're always meeting new people during events that are happening, as well as new people in different positions in the building. Everyone is really nice and friendly, which makes it sort of feel like one big family.

I had fun working there, friendly staff and a lot of cooperation but the hours given didn't not work well with my school hours. I didn't have much time to spend on my homework the nights u worked and became very behind and stressed with piles of work on me.

I have a preferred location and the patrons I deal with are mostly season ticket holders for hockey games and they are amazing people. I talk to them all the time with tons of laughter. Co-workers are amazing team players. We look after each other and having a good time. There are always a bad apple in the crowd but it is dealt with very professionally and effectively. I do love the people I deal with on every shift. It's always a good time.
dealing with people that have severe health issues. ex. heart attacks

Budweiser is a great place to work. My favourite part is my boss; he is very welcoming and knows how to take care of his team. He treats us very well and he is very fair. The shifts go by quick and the customers rock; they are very nice and easy to serve.
