In my opinion you don't get paid enough to justify all of the stress. What kept most people working there including myself was the great hours they give you.

Decent summer job with flexible scheduling. Great coworkers but it was very disorganized. Amazing if looking for a first job only. Loved my ride, Thunder Run "Choo Choo". The team was supportive. However, the pay is minimum for so much work.

Also, they are very strict on safety rules, which is a good thing. Fun for summer. It is fun for the summer if you are young and can handle working out in the sun for a majority of the day. You have to deal with a lot of customers, so patience and stamina is key. Fun Workplace. The hours they give are a lot but really good if you're looking to make money. Management is amazing, most are super nice and understanding. Long shifts in the sun and dealing with many different types of visitors understanding and non-understanding ones.

Best job. Points positifs. Random hours, minimum pay. Hours can range from multiple 12 hour shifts to working only hours and not even needing a lunch break. It was alright. It was arlight, but heads up, the pants in Ride operator are terrible and guests will actually treat you like scum. I know, I almost got hit in the head with a tray by a guest for not letting his kid cut at the time the biggest ride.

Exciting environment. I would definitely go back and work here, I had no issues with any of the staff and honestly everybody was so friendly and kind to me! Great place to start. Overall wonderland is a great summer job. There are many opportunities to grow within the company, however at times there can be favouritism. Unless your full-time, there's no salary or benefits, however it's a great place to start your path to building your resume. Hard work in the sun. Will build strong connections with team members, roles are divided up fairly.

Overall, I was mostly happy with my job at Wonderland. Something I didn't like was the way scheduling worked, some days would be 10 hour shifts and some would only be five which was inconvenient. Great Work Environment. Angel - December 21st, at am. Ted Russell - July 13th, at am. The Flaming Pencil - September 15th, at am.

Avis des employés pour Ride Operator chez Canada's Wonderland

Does anyone know of the u. It had enterprise-like cars. It spun horizontally around an axis, like the enterprise, but then was pulled over an arch-like half circle — spinning riders upside down and then ending up on the other side of the arch. I like it how you are stuck to the wall while facing the ground at a 90 degree angle. Completely awesome!
