The management at Niagara Parks is extremely cooperative with your work schedule which makes it easier to approach them. I've learnt how to deal with a number of different types of people and its helped me discover new cultures.
A typical day working at the parks is extremely enjoyable as there is a lot of flexibility and choices as to what you want to work on. I like the management because it has high amounts of faith in me and there is less stress on me and my everyday tasks because I know that they trust me to get them all done without reminders.

I would work this company in a heartbeat! Incredible location and always something to keep you looking forward to the day. High standards for perofmance as it is an international attraction, but the incredible atmosphere helps you stay passionate about working there.
The Niagara Parks is a productive corporation that provides great enjoyment and entertainment to the public. Only problems I ran into is people who had been there a long time who felt that they were entitled to do whatever they wanted. Overall great experience

Long and late hours. Not a lot of room to move up.
It was my first real job , and it was an experience , I really had to learn a lot of new skills , but it was all worth it . I had a great 4 years. I did all kinds of work , such as grass cutting , garbage cleanup , and working in the gardens.
Working for the Parks was a great opportunity and stepping stone into working in the horticulture industry. The level of experience gained from working there exceptional.
Great job overall for a summer job. I worked afternoons which was from 3-11:30 so it didn't have the greatest work/life balance but you had two days off. I was a student so I had zero benefits and salary was minimum wage. Job security and advancement was non existent since I was only a student, although as long as management likes your job performance then you would be considered for a seasonal or full time position which would come with being in the union.
A typical day involves ringing up sales, greeting customers and providing information to those in need of assistance. Most interactions with paying customers are between 30-45 mins since our sales require a hard amount of detailed scheduling and important information that must be understood by the customer. Customer service is a huge part of every shift, and each person must be greeted with a smile along with a positive attitude. The atmosphere at the welcome centre is very positive and the supervisors are very helpful and understanding. The hardest part would most likely be containing a consistent amount of patience. Supervisors and managers are very supportive of employees that are unable to handle difficult situation and are wiling to step in and take over when needed.
Shift is spent standing most of the time
There were people who had been there for over a decade and students like myself who had only been there for a few summers during high school/university. It was a good job, I would go back for another summer!
