Administrative Support (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 September 2013
My time working for the ttc was very short. Within those two months, I filled, shredded documents, photocopied, and entered data into access. My co-workers were very friendly. They would buy me coffee, and take me out for lunch.
ITS\ (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 January 2017
Everything about the company is great, except the fact that it is a big company. And as same as all big companies, it has a lot of hierarchy issues, including redundancy of work, or changes of work plans/projects, etc.
Although there are too many opinions to finish a task at times, it is great to see everyone's voice being heard, and something being done about it.
Service Agent/ Operator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 November 2016

Driver (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 May 2016
Being a driver for ttc is not as everyone says split shifts, weekends, holidays, nights, days. You basically have to give up your life for $61,000 a year which after benefits,tax,pension,union ends up working out to be $45,000 yearly. If you have skills experience and a family don't waste your time. I feel bad for ttc drivers being fooled with job security.
Friendly work environment and stimulating projects that kept me wanting more!
Technical Illustrator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 July 2016
I work in the training and development department which is very friendly and positive. Everyone is there to learn and to build important training programs that promote work place safety. TTC has a culture that is more like an extend family that is willing to listen carefully and answer any questions or concerns. Management makes it a priority to make sure that all the projects are kept on track and are wrapped up in a timely manner and done right. There are a great deal of projects to manage from instructors, program developers and subject specialists which is a challenge at times, but through communication and great deal of team support this challenge has been met. Working in the training and development department is a ongoing learning experience, to be able to illustrate and learn has been very valuable to my career; going into the field and talking with operators and engineers has made my job very rich and enjoyable.
Some flexibility in hours, diverse projects, positive environment
Customer service Representative (Former Employee) – Trenton, ON – 7 August 2016
Got Hands on experience in dealing with the customers directly and facing the crowd and being able to resolve all their doubts. Also learnt a lot of team work as this job needed our team to pay attention to our group members along with the customers. coordinating with the team made the shifts easier even in the extreme cold winters. learnt management skills while acting as a team lead.
most enjoyable part of the job was the smile and the gratitude the customers showed to my team after all their queries were solved.
The hardest part was to withstand the cold winters on the stations specially when we were positioned outside the stations during certain shifts.
Station Collector (Current Employee) – Subway – 20 February 2017
I learned a lot at this job. How to have patience, how to deal appropriately to people who are confrontational. I was taught quite a bit about the human rights code and how it applies to customers, staff and management alike.

Garage Service Person ∙ Summer Student (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 September 2015
The Toronto Transit Commission is an amazing place to work. Safe, friendly and comfortable work environment. Amazing zeal for customer satisfaction amongst employees. The most enjoyable part of working for the TTC is the sense of satisfaction you feel when you help people from in and out of the city with customer service. The hardest part of this job is learning to adapt to different roles and positions which won't be a problem based on the amazing training that is offered with the company.
Amazing work culture and lifetime benifits. Equal opportunity for everyone.
Sinority counts for alot based on hours and time/years acumilated, which is reasobable. Every employee has to put in thier time to before having specific work hours.
Locomotive Engineer/ Content writer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 August 2015
The job was time sensitive, which is a norm in the service industry. Moving two million people daily can produce a degree of stress. I worked in various departments including marketing. A typical day was to come up with positive content that would resonate with the ridership, which coincidentally also happened to be our readership.
Being partly union the company had been struggling for the last three decades with it's image as a commuter friendly service provider amidst the strikes and service disruptions, which had become quite the norm.
The environment was challenging due to being highly regulated. The company lacked competent management.
A big garage with over 600 drivers and support staff. There is pool table, table tennis, and fuss ball table
Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 June 2015
It is a great place to work. I giggle to my self when I think about driving a forty foot bus through Toronto. There are motorist who don't like to share the road. I've learned that not all people behave the same. There are people that are difficult to deal with. Those are the ones I enjoy the most to deal with. I thrive for a challenge to make them smile. Management is very supportive of me. I don't feel afraid or intimidated when speaking with them. My co-workers are great. There are a few odd bad apples. I don't expect perfection from them. The hardest part of the job is the time away from my wife and daughter. The times when I'm supposed t finish, but I'm late. When I can maintain a schedule and get from one place to another safely.
Great benefits, great pay, room for internal advancements, being able to pick your own work, days off
long hours, being away from family, working almost all the holidays
Transit Operator - Badge 71431 (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 September 2016
I enjoy that when working at TTC, there is a fast pace environment and I am able to work with the public every single day. There is minimal/no supervision which has enabled me to learn how to make in the moment decisions throughout my day.
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 January 2016
