Ride Attendant (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 15 April 2018
My job as a ride attendant involved assisting passengers onto and off of rides. The work hours were reasonable, and they provided you with long breaks. The people I worked with were enthusiastic, and the hardest part of the job was the physical labor involved.
Fun workplace with friendship/bonding opportunities.
CASHIER/ FOOD SERVICE WORKER (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 3 April 2018
Fun, happy work environment. A typical day at work includes arriving, getting assigned a duty for the day, or a few hours then working your best to make guests happy. Hardest part of the job is standing in hot, dry, conditions for a prolonged amount of time. Most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know new people everyday, dealing with different issues and situations that test your problem solving skills.
Benefits at other attractions, discount of lunches and free admission to the park.
Food Service Associate (Cashier) (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 31 March 2018
Getting to work is a struggle if you live far away. Managers are strict but nice and very helpful, very fast paced, closing often goes over your shift time. depending on your unit it can be pleasant or very stressful. you will be moved around a lot to other places in the park, you have to be able to adapt and learn the cash register at other food places very quickly. best to start working as soon as the park opens because there are less guests and you can have time to learn about your unit and duties before it gets extremely busy in the summer months. (will have to buy your own uniform).
Sous Chef (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 March 2018
You see the ins and outs of an amusement park. You see all the hard work that goes on day by day. Long hours always on your feet. You get discounts all over the park and other entertainment in the city.
Summer Co-op (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 25 March 2018

Team Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 20 March 2018
The experience at Wonderland as an employee is extremely hit or miss. If you're unfortunate enough to end up in anything other than the rides department you can expect to suffer during your summer. If you do manage to be in rides, you better hope that your supervisors like you otherwise you might as well quit.
Merchandise Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 17 March 2018
As a high school student this was probably one of the most fun jobs I've ever had. It got stressful at times. But I mean when working somewhere like Wonderland thats something you have to expect. The pay was also really good, but that's something that varies from person to person.
Food and Beverage Server (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 March 2018
Canada's Wonderland is the busiest place to work.I have gained many skills throughout working at Canada's Wonderland.All the co-workers and supervisors' are nice and much helpful, especially if it is the first day of your work at Canada's Wonderland.
Line Cook (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 March 2018
I usually worked in the morning until the evening. Working in the morning is pretty easy and relaxed because there wasn't usually a lot of customers, if there were, it would be a short rush. Until later on the day, it would get hectic on normal days. I learned that serving costumers isn't fun and some will just be plan rude for no reason, but costumers are always first, and i did everything i can to satisfy their needs. Working at wonderland is fun, especially with the workers, closing at night is really fun at times and just bonding and making new friends, but wonderland does give you long hours, and it really does exhaust you sometimes. working at wondering was a fun experience.
Maze Monster (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 13 March 2018
A typical day at work was working together and having fun while entertaining customers during the Halloween Haunt season, I learned how to manage my time, become a team and work with them and how to endure a long shift with constant movement and on my feet.
Perks for free admission to Wonderland before shifts, Ripleys and CNtower

Canada's Wonderland was an amazing place to work at because of the good vibes, the amazing game's staff I got to work with, our supervisors were very chill and easy to get along with. The training and orientation process was good and in depth as well.

Sales associate (Former Employee) – Maple, ON – 3 March 2018
As an employee of Canada’s Wonderland, I was given the responsibility to bring excitement, fun and memorable experiences to the guests of the amusement park. Usually a typical day for me would be a 6-7 hour shift, where I would be placed at a games booth and told to promote my game. I'd be in charge of advertising our low prices and our fabulous prizes and would be held financially responsible for all financial transactions made at my designated booth. During this time I learned how to grasp people's attention and to promote a stand or product successfully. An enjoyable part of my shift was getting to do things on my own as I was often alone at a booth and able to promote how I wanted to. In periods of low customers such as cold and rainy days, when no one wants to play a game, I was challenged and still managed to successfully promote it.
Discounts you could get on park food, and also free tickets to the park
