Program Site Coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 December 2017
I enjoyed the work. I left the city once long time ago. DO NOT EVERY LEAVE you will loose all your seniority hours you have earned. It can be great place work but also not. Just depends on were what unit you apart of.
Takes long time to get certain training's, hard to move upwards within the organization
Program Leader (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 December 2017
I have worked for the city for three years now and I love it as a part-time worker because you can choose shifts based on your schedule. Helps make money on the side, however for full time employees it is more difficult.
Facility In-Charge (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 December 2017
Days are always different. Different tasks to handle. Everyone is friendly and approachable. I have learned to adapt to every situation and person in order to communicate with others and tackle certain tasks.
Weight room staff (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 December 2017
It is good to work for City of Toronto if have full time positions. If have part time positions then your pay can easily get cut and/or lose your position. I personally enjoyed working for City of Toronto in Community center for 20 years. I enjoyed helping people who needed City's help and found many good friends in doing it. I will support my City's Community centers but will not work for them since after 20 years of experience they decided to bring down my pay rate to only 30 cents over minimum wage. Yes, that is true!
Children Program Leader (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 December 2017
I really enjoy working with the city of Toronto, it is flexible, pays well and is very attentive to the needs of the employer. I learned different ways to deal with people and children, and strengthened my leadership skills, I have more confidence with talking to people of the public and expressing myself. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you are bringing the community together by being involved in the kids lives outside of the home.
Support C (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 27 November 2017
Working for the City of Toronto can be a grand career advancement, IF you are FULL TIME.
Being Full Time gives you all the perks
-Benefits -Vacation -Pension - Great salary!
But, obtaining full time is the hard part. Screening, testing, interviewing is over whelming and confusing... for most full time positions they just transfer and move around the full timers. so your stuck being a part timer which means
- Working evening and weekends - minimum wage - no benefits - no vacation time
Administrative & Customer Service Rep. (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 November 2017
With the City of Toronto having many various departments and divisions, there are many positions in roles within the company. Based on my experience, the City of Toronto can be a great employer. However, career advancement is very limited.
Water Maintenance Worker 2 (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 October 2017

Administrative Assistant/Program Leader (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 October 2017
- The job is more to gain experience about working with the City than having a career. If you are a student in high school or university, it is a great place to work to gain experience in municipal workplace. But pay is very low, very little to no immediate advancement, and there are far and few jobs between peak seasons.
