    I worked at Canadian National Exhibition part-time

    Pros

    Great supervisors, fun and positive staff, customer service-oriented environment. Free admission to the CNE is always a bonus!

    Cons

    They do not provide free parking for employees, so you must find a way to use transit to commute to and from work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I thoroughly enjoyed working at the CNE.
