Was in charge of a room there and management support was fantastic

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

A fair experience in earning a part-time income and hospitality experience
Race day Patron Attendant-CorporateF&B Staff (Former Employee) –  Caulfield East VIC18 April 2018
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.

SNACK ATTENDANT (Former Employee) –  Sandown Park VIC20 April 2017
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
