Station Collector (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 October 2017
very challenging, lack of help, pressure always very immense from management. On your own, not much support to understand how the operation runs. Technology and communication to employs needs to be better very outdated way of doing business.
Summer Student - Stations Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 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.
TRANSIT OPERATOR AND TRAINER (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 September 2017
The toronto transit commission was also a great company to be employed with and after over 31 years of service with the commission, I retired. I had always enjoyed working with the public and has had several commendations from the riders who on a daily bases, relied on us for their transportation needs.

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.

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

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.
