Volunteer Job so, no pay for lots and lots of work.

Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 April 2017
This was a tight-nit team with many dynamic skills and abilities. Everyone (including myself) was willing to pitch in and assist in any role, whether it be administrative, hands on, or heavy lifting. The environment is always changing and challenges come up constantly, but the morale made everyone want to help and come together to complete the project.
Pros
fed on site, great team
Cons
Long hours (late too)

It was fun to work with the City of Toronto, a lot of great workers and a lot of opportunities to move up. A typical day would be coming in early and teaching for half of the day and then for the second half of the day there would be a lifeguard position until the shift was over.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 March 2017
I enjoyed working for the City of Toronto for 12 years. Good job security with great pay and benefits, good work culture, supportive management but over 12 years I found it wasn't motivating or challenging enough.

Also, when they go on strike every few years, you do not get paid and it puts you in dire situation.
Pros
Great pay and benefits, good work culture, supportive management
Cons
Monotonous work - not challenging and no pay when on strike
