Good place to work with job security, benofits, life-work balance etc
Supervisor Estimating (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 May 2014
35 hours per week is fairly descent work hours in order to balance the life and work and is a good place for people for with experience and in their forties and above as they would have gone through their learning period at other work places.
As this being a very large organization with several years of existence, everything is organized and things move very smoothly and the management system is excellent.
Co-workers are very cooperative.
There are lot of things to learn at TTC, when it comes to working in an operating facility with limited hours (two to three hours) of work during non-revenue hours. It is very challenging.

TRANSIT OPERATOR (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 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.
Very Rewarding Career - Lots to learn and lots to explore
Streetcar Instructor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 August 2017
Currently my work day consists of preparing the slides for my class (for my in class portion) I present the days topic (with power points) anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours. Then we hit the road explaining all the functions (that are necessary for the operator to know) on the streetcar (or subway, or bus) and then drive around town (for up to 4 hours) critiquing, analyzing, and correcting the operator/trainee' s driving habits / behaviours.
Station Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, On – 15 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.
Customer Information Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 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.
Fellow employees are great to work with, able to volunteer for different activities
computers are really old and slow, phone system extremely old and phones break down every so often.
Good wages & average benefits (gets worse as the years go by)
Transportation Operations (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 July 2017
Company still working with old technology and terrible people skills especially the management to upper management staff. The company does not understand the importance or work / life balance and still create many of their own issues with scheduling, terrible management practices and mis-management of funds.
TTC not built to handle the volume of population growth that it is now. Many improvements still needed in transportation, station and security upgrades.
You need to change all of it and leave out the political obstructions.
wages & benefits (pension if is remains for the future)
Long hours, no work life balance until 15+ years or over, poor management practices (threatening, intimidation, very little flexibility to help anyone other than themselves), huge sacrifices with social life & family life, uncertainty with securing jobs now & for the future
Focus on the company and your individual experience while employed there
