The job culture was good with regards to the employees that you work with. They become like family to you, even when you transfer to different facilities within the city. Management always emphasizes the quality of service, which can sometimes get a little stressful as expectations are set fairly high

Transit Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 28 October 2017
Great job! I don't really have anything bad to say about my experience here, I must say that I enjoyed working here. Management was great and very approachable. The customer service skills you learn here are invaluable. Co-workers are great people! The hardest part of the job was dealing with rude customers, but in any job, you will have to deal with that. The most enjoyable part of this job was serving the public. I would do it again if I had to.
Job security, Pay, Great managerial team and helpful co-workers

VOLUNTEER (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 5 September 2017
I personally loved working there, but found it too exhausting as the Leaders didn't do anything but we as the volunteers had to do a lot of more work then the leaders. All they did was boss us around but teaching kids was a great experience. There are some negatives but the positives overweigh the cons.
Enjoyable working atmosphere with friendly and understanding employees and management
