Toxic work environment
Safety advisor (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC1 August 2018
There is no work/life balance, the shift options are 10hrs + for everyone. The management is mad with power, and HR lets them run the show. No job security. They find good people and tear them down for their own amusement. The work was good but the management was horrible. Don't work here if you can help it.
Pros
free transit pass while employed
Cons
everything else

Very poorly managed not worker focused
Safety Advisor (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC27 April 2017
This is by far the worst company to work for within the Crown Corporations bundle. They do not care about their employees and bullying is encouraged and supported. The Human Resources department does not follow up or conduct an investigation, instead they side with the Manager and dismiss the employee.

Best Job Ever
Vehicle Technician (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC2 February 2018
By far the best job anybody could ever wish for. Been with the company for two years and have never experienced a more supportive team like environment. Nobody is going to fire you like a dealership job for having cancer or getting hurt on the job.
Never looked back.
Pros
People.
Cons
None

Poor safety culture and poor employee support
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  BCRTC26 August 2017
Company's safety department is not concerned with employee safety and staff are not supported by the HR department. The morale is low and workers (not unionized) feel stressed and insecure everyday due to the parent company's mandate of being clueless and uncaring. They've taken a company that used to work well and populated it with incompetent management. The pay is below industry standard now, with the poor management and poor morale there is no incentive to work for there.

horrible place
Guideway (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC3 October 2017
I worked Night shift in guideway and it has been the worst experience ever. Most of the senior workers feel entitled and show superiority to the new employees. The bullying is constant and if you stand up for yourself they will run to the supervision and cry. I have never worked in a company where so called men behave like little gossiping girls. There are a couple of good people in the company but do yourself a favor and do not work for Guideway.
Pros
Pension is decent
Cons
Coworkers
