Previous Middle Management Employee
Position not important (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BCJuly 14, 2016
Unfortunately the management of this operation is full of self-serving management executives only interested in complete stability in their positions and only offering an overworked and under paid environment for subordinates.

My experience is there is no commitment to employee personal growth and I witnessed a continuous revolving door of new hires and long term employees.

Many circles with spin in your head with improper guidance on objectives and there will be no commendation when you do a good job.

Don't let this organization pull you in with "Best Pension plan", "good work/life Balance" promises.

If you take a job here...... Keep looking and consider only transition employment

Be Careful
Pros
none
Cons
Don't work here if yiou are wanting long term employment!

Horrible mangement, watched good people become totally changed...because of their drive for the top..most were the lazy ones...watched them destroy long term employees, and watched them destroy good union leaders, as they gave away the farm for management positions.
(look at the pay now??).
Hired foriegn workers from England over qualified Canadians because of the Double Decker program...lied about camera operations to the public and employees on transit coaches...
Pros
Decent benefits

Poor hourly wages to start

Incompetent management, awful working environment
Grunt (Former Employee) –  VictoriaMay 11, 2015
Totally clueless managers and an operation that clearly has no idea what it takes to be a well run service. Sad that the people that are impacted the most are often societies most vulnerable. No oversight and no accountability. I've never worked in a more dysfunctional environment and hope to avoid similar situations in the future.
Pros
Decent salary
Cons
Terrible leadership, everything else

Fleet (Former Employee) –  BCJune 28, 2014
High stress environment with low pay but good benefits and RSP. Rules are fairly lax and environment is not strict which leads to generally high morale. Ability to modify schedule is a perk

Senior Project Analyst (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BCAugust 14, 2012
BC Transit is the provider of transit services for the Province of BC, with the exception of the lower mainland (serviced by Translink). I have had the opportunity to work on numerous capital projects during my tenure, ranging from conceptual light rail projects to actual builds of Operating and Maintenance facilities, Transit Exchanges, local bus shelter installations, and long term planning exercises. The Fixed Asset Construction team at BC Transit is comprised of enthusiastic young professionals, who drive change and lead by example!
Pros
good pension plan and benefits
Cons
bureaucratic
