This is a "good" job if you want security, benefits and the ability to chose your own days off and hours. The most difficult part of the job is adjusting your life around the shifts.

Difficult
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto19 June 2017
This job was through an agency so it is not a review of the TTC. However it was a physically and mentally difficult job. You are expected to do this job through the winter (standing outside in -20 degree conditions). Briefing of rerouting of the transport systems are not done properly.

great place to work
Statistics Clerk (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 April 2017
Clock in. Do your job. Go home.

Secure job. Great people. High pay compared to private sector. A lot of vacation time as you progress. Some coworkers are petty and try to run the show but if you can deal with them you'll find there are very few better places to work.

Amazing pension. Probably one of the best in the country.

Only cons is that the work isn't very meaningful. You're just a cog in the system.
Pros
Hours. Work Life Balance. Pension. Free TTC.
Cons
No bonus unless you're really high up. Coworkers can be annoying.

I loved driving the bus...I miss it terribly.
Bus Operator (Former Employee) –  Queensway division TTC31 March 2017
My experience with the ttc was amazing even though it made my personal life difficult....it was worth it. I loved having the flexibility to work when I could. I loved the responsibility and the aknowledgement I recieved from people when I proudly told them I was a TTC operator. I loved servicing the public and meeting all kinds of people no matter what their situation was. I enjoy people and picking their brains to find out more about other experiences and ideas in life.
Pros
pay...benefits
Cons
working holidays, weekends, nights. I missed raising my babies.
