Financial Administration Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 October 2017
a bit of a slower pace but really enjoyed being there. It is an "older" crowd per say, but everyone is really open to learning new things and teaching the new comers the tips and tricks of the job.
Pros
Good hours, great teams, awesome people

Good Student Position
Summer Student - Stations Ambassador (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 October 2017
Great as a summer student given the wage and the TTC metropass. However, the culture can be a tad toxic and people become obsessive with the drama. If you have tough skin, this may be a good option given the pay, otherwise I'd chose a different company.

Axle Fitter (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 September 2017
Many careers keep you in one position without advancement. The TTC allows and encourages employees to learn and apply to different positions in the company. Work culture is up beat but can be demanding at times. The interactions on a daily basis is the most enjoyable part of the job. Come here if you want to grow.
Pros
Work life balance, educational allowance.
Cons
Management allowing unsafe practices at times.

Great Company
TRANSIT OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 August 2017
Great company to work for, lots of advancement. A typical day with the TTC is great though, not very stressful and easy to separate work from your personal life. The hardest part of the job is the splits and long hours that are required.

Station Ambassador (Former Employee) –  Toronto, On15 August 2017
Working with the Toronto Transit was amazing. I got to meet new people and see lots of different tourist who came to Canada especially around the time of the Pan-Am games. Lastly, the management team was wonderful and treated their employees with respect. They always made sure that safety was their number one priority and ensure that we were well hydrate during extreme hot weather. In return of our successful customer service we were guratneed a position every summer as long as we were in school full-time.
Pros
nice pay cheque
Cons
standing long

A well documented organization
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 August 2017
This organization can tend to be process bound with 'red tape'. It is responsive to its customers' needs. It is a very large organization and can take overly long durations making internal changes.
Pros
Good employee relations
Cons
Overly Process bound

Customer Information Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 July 2017
Has great pay and benefits, depending on what department you're in it is hard to advance. Fellow employees are great to work with, make the work environment easier to handle. Management is good and for the most part willing to listen to new ideas or issues anyone may have had. Some managers are difficult and rude.
Pros
Fellow employees are great to work with, able to volunteer for different activities
Cons
computers are really old and slow, phone system extremely old and phones break down every so often.
