Great place to work, flexible.
Instructor role offers flexible shift(s) - great working with kids on the ice teaching them the fundamentals of hockey and skating in general. Peers are easy to work with and are collaborative.

Job was easy
Easy work . Not the best pay but wasn’t hard work for the pay. Managers acted like they care but didn’t. Only a few of the staff cared about the cleanliness of the kitchen.

Na
Management doesn't have the experience that they need to do the job. Everyone is out to get you. They do nothing for employees that are there for a long time. Wages are lower than expected.

Loved working at Canlan
Loved working at Canlan Jemini Saskatoon. The general manager was the most supportive I've had at any workplace and the overall atmosphere was a fun and positive one. I'll miss working there and sometimes wish i had never moved on.

Good short term option for your career
Stressful in the sense that you know that they are aggressively looking at cutting costs, whether it is removing your position or adding to your work load without pay incentives. Hard to think long term when they think mostly quarterly.

Great company
CanLan is an excellent company. All departments work together to provide exceptional service for all aspects of the facility from rink level, office to restaurant. Everyone has a great working relationship to make a wonderful work environment like family. The members who we see weekly also make a daily work day a pleasure. The work and life balance is always considered to make employees feel good and enjoy working for such a great company.
Also, great to always keep up to date on all Heath and safety courses, CPR, and other job related courses to make for better trained staffed.
Pros
Great work place, management and work environment

Great way to teach children about the sport I love
On a typical day at Canlan we would have 3 ice sessions and two field sessions to work with children aged 7-13. During ice sessions we focused on skills necessary for them to advance in hockey, while in the field sessions we worked on our physical conditioning while having fun (played a lot of soccer).

My greatest lesson from Canlan was to be patient with kids as they learn a new sport. Many times the kids would need to be shown a drill 2-3 times before they would be able to get it right.
Pros
Free lunch, good hours
Cons
No real breaks as you are with the kids 5 days a week, 8 hours a day.

Good part-time job
Good job for long shifts and at night that won't interfere with school or other jobs. Cold place to work, make sure to wear 2 pairs of pants and a hat. The staff and participants can be friendly and make few jokes.

Pros
Close relationships between bosses
Cons
Far from home

Amazing Place
Love Canlan, the people are incredible.
The managers understanding and incredibly nice

The sports and opportunities are amazing

Hardest art about working at Canlan is not as many hours as Id like, and sometimes late hours.

I've been taught incredible customer service and computer skills

Favorite part about my job is definitely the independence and trust they have in their workers to get what they are told to do done. No hovering
Pros
Paid training, sports, discounts on activities, people
Cons
late nights

Canlan was unique in it's field but became repetitive with it's only focus on hockey. Working environment was small but collaborating was easy among all departments.
Pros
Free Programming
Cons
Low pay, no room for growth

Fun place to work if interested in hockey
Score keeping is a fairly easy job once you've gotten the hang of it. It consists of taking information for referees, controlling a score board, and entering information into a computer.
Pros
good pay
Cons
games can get boring
