No to anything under stewarding department
Assistant Chief Steward (Employé actuel) –  Toronto, ON31 août 2019
Good place to work but not as a supervisor or manager. Just take the jobs available. Leadership rolls are for short term employment. Just employees get benefits. Please don't take any jobs in Stewarding department, laundry attendant, pot washer, kitchen helper sanitation. Everything else is fine cash for life.

Still lot of issues
Stand Attendant (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON14 août 2019
So when I first came to woodbine I thought this was a great company!

I left while back and I have to say there are a few flaws. Pay isn’t the best. Was above standards yet when the wage went up last year. Our pay didn’t.

2nd is the politic in this company. Wayyyyy too much favouritism. 3rd.....this company is the worst for rumours. If you have anything in your life expect it to go around the company.

Finally this is a union job. My experience, I haven’t seen anyone brought back after being let go. I’ve seen people let go for reasons they have a argument why they shouldn’t be. Aka short term is fine but wouldn’t go too much longer.
Points positifs
Weekly check
Points négatifs
Stress and drama

Good pay, some co workers are cool
Head Salad (Ancien employé) –  Etobicoke, ON18 juillet 2019
Uniforms Are outdated, and need to be suitable for hot weather. So is chefs are helpful. Most people there are just looking out for themselves and find it a bother to teach you. All high volume prep work, and always working weekends and holidays. No time for family. Good compensation, and benefits though.

Good Job if you’re good with management
Security Guard (Ancien employé) –  Rexdale, ON13 juillet 2019
If you work in this department be prepared to witness a lot of favouritism.
Company is good but the department is bad, corrupted, negative, disorganized. This department is poorly managed and it will not change anytime soon. The director has been there 30 years.
Lots of management, who can’t fill shifts and answer emails. This department needs more structure.
Not allowed to have days off and demand guards to work weekends. This department works against their employees, a bunch of dictators.
Not a good environment. When you try to do your job the lazy ones enable you.
Management is a joke you can do anything you will never get canned.
Points positifs
Meet new people
Points négatifs
Poorly managed

Fun place to work
Terminal Operator (Ancien employé) –  Rexdale, ON30 novembre 2018
I worked for Woodbine Entertainment Group part-time for 7 years. It was a fun place to work and meet new people. Team environment. The most challenging part of this job was ensuring you balanced at the end of the night because if you went short it would be taken out of your paycheck. Learned great customer service skills and face to face interaction with customers.
Points positifs

My role was mostly food running and prep
Kitchen Helper (Ancien employé) –  Etobicoke, ON10 novembre 2018
Working at Woodbine racetrack helped me to understand the real kitchen and restaurant in details. It was a really fast-paced job, one should be really aware of his/her duties and should be punctual and well capable of time management.

Not a place you want to be
IT (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON9 novembre 2018
New IT Management lacks direction and has no concerns about work life balance. You are expected to be on call 24 hours a day for the better part of the month and will be disciplined for coming into work late the following morning even if called at 4am. Pay is on the very bottom of the scale. Years of service and is shadowed by favoritism, if your not willing to bend over backwards to ridiculous expectations you will not advance rather management will find every excuse to make your life difficult by micro managing you and force you out the door.

If you want to get paid bottom dillar and have no life and don’t mind being bullied by management then this is the place to be.
Points positifs
None
Points négatifs
Too many to list

Playing Services Representative ( Vaughan)
Player Services Representative (Ancien employé) –  Vaughan, ON17 octobre 2018
Dealing with bunch of old, drunk and aggressive gamblers was VERY frustrating. They never tip good, most of them loosing money and put all the frustration on you. Getting paid 14$ per hour for that is rediculuis.
Managers did not care and could put your shift at 9 am on Sunday after you closed at 2 am on Saturday.
Overall very boring, repetitive job with lots of stress and low pay ( 270$ per week, after taxes for 24 hours)
Points positifs
Nice co-workers
Points négatifs
Annoying gamblers, low pay, long hours.

It's only a job. Not a career .
Kitchen Staff (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON31 août 2018
This place is not a bad place to work. There is lots of politics and unnecessary drama. Senior workers are stuck in their old ways and refuse to adapt to the culture change. Although they have tried very hard to do a culture change within the last 3 years I have noticed that not all departments are accepting it! They want you to conform to their old ways instead of embracing the new wave of culture. There is room for promotions which is kind of cool but it's mostly handed to 'the chosen ones'. People complain they have to work 6 days a week and then complain when they are not scheduled for the overtime.

Alot of employees are extremely friendly (other departments) and make the effort to say hi and make you feel welcome in the hallways.

The union is okay. I've never really had to deal with them.

Staff meals are not ideal but hey atleast it's at cost.

Strongly recommend going in doing your shift and getting out. Dont make friends or go the extra mile. No one cares and they won't do it for you.
Points positifs
Benifts (medical/enjoyment perks)
Points négatifs
No individuality

As a dining room supervisor you get to meet a ton of great people and the job is fast paced and different every day. Managers are great and treat you like family.

Should be neagtive rating
Server (Ancien employé) –  Campbellville, ON16 avril 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.
Points positifs
Lots of night shifts
Points négatifs
Horrible work culture
