    I worked at Gulfstream Park full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's exciting and rewarding whether you work on the back side with the horses or up front in the gaming/betting areas.

    Cons

    To work on the backside (in the barns) you must first get hired by sitting at the front gate at 5 AM. As trainers come in to work they look over the crowd and if they need someone they will ask. Once hired, you must then get a pari mutuel license to be able to continue coming to work. (It's not hard, they take care of it onsite in the security office). You will park your car outside in the lot and hike or bike into the barn area. Depending on the barn, it can be as far as a mile! The hours suck (as early as 4:30 AM), the work is hard and dangerous, and it doesn't pay nearly enough . . . if you love horses and horse racing it's a dream come true!!

    I worked at Gulfstream Park

    Pros

    It is a great company that can introduce one to fields such as Human Resources, Hospitality, Marketing, Finance, and Payroll.

    Cons

    Because they are on a budget due to the current economic climate, interns will find it very hard to secure a permanent, full-time position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gulfstream has a great and competent structure. My only suggestion would be to offer a more formalized training program instead of strictly On the Job Training.
