Amazing site to work at
The site was amazing to work at and there are many interesting stories. There is a lot of variety in tasks, what you will change daily as you rotate through positions. Supervisors where goods about answering questions, and the retired corrections workers were always willing to share stories and help out.

Fun and rewarding workplace
The Fort Henry Guard is an excellent summer job, combining a capable cadre of veteran employees with many younger and dedicated trainees. The workplace is fast moving and challenging, but also extremely rewarding. I'd highly recommend this job to any students wishing to make a good bit of money in the summer between years of undergrad.

Fort Henry: the most unique job you'll ever have
Working as a Historical Interpreter at Fort Henry was probably one of the best experiences I had during my University degree. Wearing the uniforms, learning the drill and music, and firing the artillery of British Soldiers of the 1860s was an absolute blast, and I'll never forget my time there.

A great place with a great team
Working with the St. Lawrence Parks Commission, I not only learned a lot about the area and community around it, but also learned skills of working in a fast-paced and collaborative environment. It was always fun to work there, and ideas for new projects were freely shared and acted upon.

Best Summer Job
Company is headed in a better direction with quality people leading the charge, but still much room for improvement regarding the culture of the organization. Greater leadership and communication required moving forward. Working as a Student there was terrific, working with great people, but events can be a gong show.

enjoyable and beneficial
Working for the St. Lawrence Park's Commission was an enjoyable job that came with countless benefits. Management taught you how to deal with situations and customers on your own and how to run the registration booth with no problems. The workplace culture was very easy going but filled with hard work.

Welcoming, lively environment
Fort Henry is an absolutely wonderful place of employment that constantly offers a welcoming work environment and always positively pushes its employees to improve themselves. The only noticeable hurdle in my experience is building physical condition to accommodate the job. However, that obstacle is jumped as time goes on for the staff helps consolidate any weak points you may have.
