operator, bus and subway (Former Employee), Toronto, OntarioSeptember 23, 2012
Pros: pension, benefits
Cons: working stat. holidays at times.
I enjoyed interacting with people. My co-workers were professional and many became close personal friends. Management set a base for high morale and was always there when you needed them.
The hardest part of the job was collecting fares from people who did not want to pay or you were given a bad transfer and you were required to deal with the situation in a professional manner.
I enjoyed driving and talking to people.

Exciting Opportunities; Great Program; Good for Toronto
Manager - Contract Administration (Current Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 4, 2012
Pros: a huge, major program with many dimensions and depth
Cons: political and staffing uncertainties
As a senior executive, there has been ample opportunity to add value to project processes and program issues, including program-wide purchasing and product strategies, cross-department networking, and multicontract coordination. The Transit Expansion Program has been a fantastic experience in multibillion dollar infrastructure and mass transit planning and construction. By having two roles, gained significant experience in procurement, contract administration, project management and contracts management for a major program. Staff were fantastic to work with and my collaborative management style suited them well. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting involved in solution finding and helping teams find answers through forecasting and risk management; the hardest part of the job was working with sometimes conflicting signals from key stakeholders, with major impacts regarding organizational structures.
