Corporate company is shady
ONBOARD HOST (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC26 February 2019
If you enjoy waking up at 3;30 am to start work and have no for see able end time in sight then this is a great gig. The work is min wage and grats. You can make great money and skip town for 6 months and only work 6 months of the year. Great if thats what you would like to do.
Pros
only working 6 months
Cons
No transparancy with grats that come fom the company, 2 accountants for 500 staff miss alot of money. Never get paid for missing money or any explanation.

Waste of time
Front Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC5 December 2018
Time spent working for this company is wasted time. Little to no advancement for one. Cuthroat when there is an opening. People pretend to be your friends but its really just a catty and selfish environment. Expect to go into the negative while working here. They pay a few pennies over minimum wage and they won't even tell you the pay when you go to the interview, they just beat around the bush until they have you cornered. Waste of time. McDonalds will treat you better.

Worker (Former Employee) –  Jasper24 August 2018
Keep looking, this is only seasonal work. The subcontractors for this company pay low. If you do decide work here just do it for one season or two just to get back on your feet. Any longer you're in a professional rut and need to take action.
Pros
Make you realize how unemployable you really are.
Cons
Low pay, no benefits, high employee turn around...

Station Host (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC14 March 2018
Everyone is great, they treat you fairly and make sure you're okay. Typical morning you check people in and talk and smile and engage with the guests. Workplace is very multicultural. The best way to get through this job is if you're already happy yourself! Waking up very early and cheery is one of the aspects you should have.
Pros
they give you great service with lunches, compensate
Cons
short hours that are split shift, hard to find someone cover your shift

Employee pay leaves a lot to be desired

Pros
Flexible hours, free trip after two years of service, occasional dinner
Cons
Pay isn't great

Onboard Host (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC20 November 2017
The company itself is full of passionate invdiviuals, but is very cliquey and judgemental especially at the management level.
Nepotism runs rapid within the onboard sectre.

Seasonal, out of town, long hours
FIRST COOK (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC2 November 2017
You spend 4 or 8 days out of town. The company pays your hotels but otherwise you spend 10-18 hours on the train per day.

The views of the Rockies are incredible, however the disturbance of your life sometimes isn’t worth it
Pros
You see the Rockies
Cons
Disturbs your life

Senior Business Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC24 October 2017
ndeed has amazing healthcare and benefits packages, in addition to an open and fun work environment. No complaints about the caliber of employees; however, the company is growing rapidly and experiencing it's own growing pains. You MUST be comfortable with EVER changing strategy and goals, and slow career growth.
