I most enjoyed being in a rotation of team members assigned to duties other than phone support. This made the day go by quicker, and the experience an overall positive one.

Able to share ideas. Good workplace environment
Stations Sustainment Department Student (Former Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 8, 2012
Pros: good benefits and salary. able to address ideas
Cons: can be hard to get information as there is a huge database
A typical day of work requires creating ideas that will further enhance the efficiency of the Hydro One stations. I have learned about power systems concepts and transmission network knowledge. Co-workers are very helpful and accommodating. Hardest part of the job is getting to extract all the information from different departments. The most enjoyable – more... part is knowing the ideas are getting implemented and considered to better the Hydro One management of stations. – less

Hydro One
Hydro One Customer Service (Former Employee), Markham, ONApril 27, 2012
Pros: the compensation/pay was amazing.
Cons: it was a possibility to lose my job at anytime
This was a good experience overall, Although lurking in the back of my mind was always that the maximum time that I am allowed to be employed here was 2 years. I was orginally hired for a 6 mnth contract, however was renewed several times. During my 2 years, I was promoted from my base customer service position, to handling only contractor requests. – more... This promotion was offered only to myself out of all of the contract employees, so I must have been doing something right :) – less

In regards to the above comment, I wonder if I know who you are... I was also promoted to "back-up triager", do you happen to know who does the hiring for Vertex now?

Good workplace and well paid
Junior Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 29, 2012
Having said that, it really depends on which department and where you will be working. As far as I can see, some positons are extremely busy while some are just normal works. I would say it is a secure job that once you are in, you are not likely out. And in contrast, I do not see much advancement oppotunities.
