Server (Former Employee) –  Campbellville, ON16 April 2018
Marketplace cafeteria at Mohawk is full of miserable spiteful workers.
Decent food and cooks.
Waitresses hate their lives and spend more time eating food out of the serving trays than working. People steak tips and give each other makeup makeovers in the back of house, then sit around and smoke and talk about the ones not there.
Union is a big joke as this particular union protects the dirty, aggressive, disrespectful thieves who are so lazy that they'd do everyone a favor by just not coming in.
Pros
Lots of night shifts
Cons
Horrible work culture

Production Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 December 2017
Had a great time working here even on the toughest days. Management, and co-workers were like an extended family, and all the people I dealt with in the other departments were terrific.
Best part of the job was being around the horses, the excitement, the great people, learning new technology, and the fun I had practically every day.
Pros
Health benefits, great co-workers
Cons
Not a lot of room for advancement

Good Company to work at
Dish Washer (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON6 December 2017
I was a dishwasher at this company. It is a good place to work as the wage is very high. Working gets tougher here during busy days. Sometimes, you will enjoy relaxed depending on the shift and the place of work within the building. As work hours changed constantly, I had to often go to bed very late in the night, it gave me sleep issues. For some people, work timing has no issues.

Systems network Anayst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 June 2017
Working at Woodbine for over 20 years, the people were the backbone of the company. Employees who love horse racing, and want to see it continue. However times have changed, so did upper management - more stress, less incentive, less flexibility, staff have to watch their every move. They do try to have ping pong, and employee events, but the mood has changed unfortunately.
Pros
Good hard working staff still exist
Cons
more work, less people

Worst job in my life
TV crew (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 February 2017
I worked there at TV department over 10 years.
I had to work early morning, late night including weekend and holiday.
They do not allow union so you can not claim overtime and gas mileage to other location.
Most crew left within 2-3 years or they kick you out with some unreasonable fact.
But high position guys they suck lots of money and benefit because it is non profit company so they have to spend all profit before year.
I regret why I worked there long time.
Never try this stupid company for your life!!!
Pros
Just looks nice
Cons
No overtime pay with weekend and holiday working
