taek won-do instructor (Current Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 28, 2012
Pros: ability to work with the community and be a positive part of their lives

As a taekwon-do instructor i do get the opportunity to work with kids and adults ,and it is a great feeling to be a positive part of the kids lives, i have seen my students growing for years to the point where they start talking about college and university knowing that they are street smart and can defend them selves is very rewarding.

WEB SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 9, 2012
Pros: flexibility with hrs, laid back culture
Cons: the work is not technically progressive, as most government jobs however, i have kept myself learning more technologies including developing my own content management system.
This has been a great working experience, dealing directly with enterprise clients and helping them market and manage their online portfolios via City of Toronto. I've learned how to juggle a number of clients at once as well as trouble shoot, build and edit content required on a case by case basis.

It is a unionized/non-unionized environment and this is sometimes confusing.
Administrative Support 'C' (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 24, 2012
Pros: best benefits in the city.
Cons: because of the union/non-union staff sometimes your not sure who to listen to.
A typical day is very busy with alot of phone calls and reception relief work.
You learn alot of course by communication with the clients and staff.
Co-workers try to be helpful. The hardest part I find is dealing with the amount of work.
The enjoyable part is getting things organized so that the next day may not be as hard.

Unmanaged hectic workdays
Swimming Instructor (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 26, 2012
Pros: great pay
Cons: horrible management
Although co-workers are fun and enjoyable, management is a total mess. Scheduling information, trainings and updates are rarely scheduled in advanced and usually rushed. Supplies are not always there and you will always have to make do with what is available. Supervisors are very biased and favour some employees over others for redundant reasons.

Municipal Security Officer (Former Employee), TorontoOctober 24, 2011
This employer has good pay and has excellent benefits!
They are flexible and understanding on personal needs for time off.
However, morale seems to be a bit low due to the fact the City is over accommodating to certain indentified employees then others.
