Rewarding environment with amazing volunteers and friendly staff
Full-time Staff (Former Employee) – Mount Hope, ON – 11 October 2016
I was employed at Canadian Warplane Heritage for 6 years and it was one of the most amazing places that I have ever worked. On the whole staff are friendly and fun to work with and the volunteers always made me smile. You always turn around to see a smiling face. I will miss that.
It was very interesting to work there because there was never a dull moment. Something new and exciting was always around the corner. New events, new aircraft visiting, dances, weddings, school groups, airshows and so many different trade shows and hangar rentals that it made every day different than the next. I will really miss that. But along with it being interesting, it could be frustrating at times because the game plan was always different and changing, which is why I think some of the other reviewers left a negative review. It's impossible to have every event run perfectly when often times it was the first time they had ever held that event. Personally, it never bothered me.
The environment was very laid-back because part of every job there was to interact with guests and volunteers. It really is different than any other place you will ever work.
All in all I loved my time there. Sure, not every staff member was great to work with but that's the same at every company. You just talk to the fun ones and there were plenty of those!
Very interesting, fun, laid-back environment
Can be frustrating at times
