But management leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Free Lunch


Easter Monday and your birthday off.


Not sure if they still pay market but was very competitive when I was there.

Anyone who has a desire and tough skin to learn and grow in food production, I would hardly recommend working at the RCYC. Extremely knowledgable and approachable Executive Chef, talented Sous Chefs, and a great team. Expect hard work, stressful situations, and occasional yelling. But it's pretty normal in any kitchen.

If you're a college student, this is probably one of the best jobs during the summer. You get to learn about different types of yachts, tie a knot, and maybe network with some members.

The management made this place a great place to work and cared about the welfare of their employees. The summer is the busiest season of 5month with very long hours but the offseason is incredibly slow with the exception of December.

The management is a joke, its more common of the members to be rude, work/life balance was nonexistent (15 days work with 1 day off?). But you learn how to deal with difficult clients pretty quickly, and how to keep your cool and disassociate from your personality in the face of disrespectful club members. Due to this, I would vouch for the RCYC to be an excellent place to learn how to serve in an extremely stressful environment.

Horrible management and the staff is greatly underappreciated. Everyone in this place is either a senior manager or a supervisor telling staff from different departments what to do and how to do it. The pay is low and there are no other incentives. To top it all there are way too many politics, meaning sometimes the right decisions cannot be taken for fear of upsetting a member or a senior manager. It is not worth it to go above and beyond since this won't get you anywhere.

Great place to work if you need money, but must be willing to work sometimes insane shifts and hours (especially if you're in banquets). Great place to meet people and new friends, everyone is super friendly. On your feet a lot, so must be physically capable. Hardest part of the job are the hours and how much it physically takes a toll on you. Excellent summer job.
Pros
Staff meals are ok, supervisors and managers are super nice and approachable, very flexible hours
Cons
long hours, physically demanding

All the servers, busboys are mostly there for one season only. It would be better if the Club provided with an opportunity for such personnel to work full-time with an opportunity to grow within the organization. That would allow good and hard-working people to stay for a much longer period with the organization.
Overall, management is very professional, nice and polite. The workplace culture changes from year to year because 90% of people are always new.
Pros
Work on the island, fresh air
Cons
Snobby members

Really stuffy persona everyone has. They try to have inclusion but it seems like just for show. They try to create employee rograms but don't really try to reach employee perspective.
Pros
some employee perks
Cons
stuffy atmosphere

I absolutely loved working as part of the Marine Yard at RCYC. The gentlemen I worked with were very wise, knowledgeable and encouraging.
I learnt that I certainly would like to continue working in the Marine Industry and am inspired to learn and do as much as I can, even if it's not working with RCYC directly.

I was hesitant to be the only female in a group of 15 men, however I have not only gained so much confidence in my abilities as a person but have gained some really great friends. Working on Toronto Island is very peaceful and allows a few relaxing moments on the commute to work.
Pros
Coworkers, Setting and Location
Cons
Wages
