Track Maintainer (Former Employee) - Calgary, AB
When you're at the bottom of the totem pole when working for the city, it takes YEARS to move up. I was stuck on the night shift for 7 years with no light at the end of the tunnel. I have young children and working nights became too much on my body and family. They have wonderful benefits and holiday/sick time and paid pretty good though!

LRV Maintenance-Service Lane Attendant (Current Employee) - Calgary, AB
As a Service Lane Attendant you learn how to work as a team. It is a very fast paced work environment, but you must always work safe at all times. We do various campaigns on the trains every week, which means we may lift seats and clear out garbage underneath or we may clean the light fixtures in the U2 vehicles. This is difficult physical work but we get the job complete. My favourite part of the job is getting the opportunity to drive and park the trains.
Pros
4 days on 3 days off
Cons
Late nights
