A typical day working in the cafeteria would be very team based working along the other(s) cafeteria worker. It would get pretty packed and chaotic around lunch time due it being the only stop for food for about 30 minutes to an hour. Most of the management were very experienced and professional and it was great working for them. The most enjoyable part of the job was being in the beautiful mountains of Alberta and meeting different people that came into the resort.
The location is amazing. It's in the middle of the Iceields Parkway, which means you're just surrounded with wildlife, and beautiful scenery. On days off, you can either go on hikes/adventures, or you can drive to Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise for shopping, or social life. There's also a pub on-site which lots of the staff would go to after work, and play pool/socialize.
On the other hand, being that it is such a small isolated property, it can sometimes be hard to deal with. The staff when i worked there, were very into gossip and causing drama (I guess they had nothing better to do), and the management definitely did not know how to handle it. Its hard to live in a small place with so many people, when there are always rumors being spread around.

Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else to work. Unless you're wanting an experience similar to the Stanford Prison Experiment. The management is awful and treat you like trash. You get overworked and underpaid. No overtime pay and they also short you. HR will talk to you like a child and snoop through your room while you're at work. No cell service and the world's slowest WiFi that doesn't work most of the time. There's more cliques than high school. If you quit, have your stuff packed and a ride prepared because they give you 1 hour to be off the resort. Same if you get fired. They don't care if you can't pack in 1 hour. You will be forced to leave behind anything you couldn't pack and they will make you stand on the side of the highway off resort in a no cell service area an hour from anything regardless if you have a ride setup or not. They also won't let you say bye to anyone. In 1 month at least 10 people packed up their stuff and left without notice in the middle of the night or even on their lunch break, sometimes forfeiting pay because their sanity was worth more than money. Bring more clothes than the 3 outfits they recommend, there is space. Bring snacks because it's $10 for a bag of chips. Stock up on alcohol if you're like everyone else there who uses alcohol to cope with the awfulness of the resort because it's $20 for a 6pack of domestic beer. Or just save yourself entirely and don't work here.
