I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far and enjoy working in the horse racing environment and culture.
There is always an opportunity to excel in your area and the atmosphere makes it a fun place to be working.

The extra skills that I have learned are invaluable.

i didnt like the fact all jewellery had to be taped or taken out, youre given an hour break and can have anything to eat which is amazing. the work was fast passed and sometimes youd get abused.

The work was fun and once the management knows that you are capable of handling your job, they respect your input and let you run with it.
Plenty of extra hours and work during the racing carnivals and corporate functions.
Pros
meals are provided
Cons
during down time, it could be quite boring

Its a very demanding and hospitality selective tree environment when it comes to receiving shifts and advancing in permanent role. A lot of hospitality commitment required to become a regular and high expectations of long working hours during carnival race-day periods.
Pros
Good rates per hour
Cons
No staff valuation beyond their casual commitment for shifts.

Directed to prepare foods for clients.
I learned what it was like to work in a kitchen.

The management was pleasant.

The culture in the kitchen environment is friendly and helpful.

This was a change of career path which I found difficult to achieve.

Learning how a kitchen works and interacting with a diverse culture of people.
Pros
Good money and organised meal breaks including meals
Cons
Unreliable hours

It's an incredibly busy job, in hospitality, it is definitely worth the time and the hard work. The travel was great, and the staff in the office and HR were great. There are a range of different personalities, but are all willing to support in one way or another.
Pros
Pay rate, environment
Cons
Long hours, can be very repetitive work (but worth it!)

MRC is a fun place to work but has a serious commitment to excel and provide outstanding customer service. Management are experienced and have the ability to act quickly to any situation including those out of the norm that presents.

It is a challenging job because the amount of customers you manage to serve in small amounts of time, however the fast paced action is fun cause it keeps you going and in a rhythm

Working at Melbourne Racing Club is like working in a library. It is a place that is filled with a bunch of well experienced and fun chefs.Starting from The executive chef to the dishwasher are very friendly and are ready to help you in every possible way.

In 2009 I started working there as a student trainee and everyone assisted me to improve my skills.
Pros
Free staff gatherings and ability to learn new things
