okay job if your manager likes you
Like anywhere new people have to do all the hard work. Long term employees look like they are relaxing most of the time. Lots of people and lots of meetings.

medium job
So the pay is above average for a high school degree, and your never expected to work O.T, But theres no job security here. The government wants to take more jobs away so its getting harder to get in, but once your in your set for an average job that has a pension and benefits.

Fun, interesting and rewarding, low stress
I worked as a skiing assistant instructor, so I helped other instructors with their classes.
Some classes were more challenging to teach than others, depending on the level and specific students.

The pay was pretty good considering how easy the job was.

Coworkers were really friendly and helpful and made the job more fun.

Management was nice and fixed any problems but some of them were a bit unorganized.

Hours were extremely flexible, I got to work whenever I wanted.

Some of the training are long and repetitive but you get paid for them.

Overall, it was a great experience and it's a good part-time job for high school students who want to gain experience, put something on their resume, and earn some money while keeping a work-to-school/life balance.

inclusive work culture with good management and fair compensation
The City of Toronto has a positive work culture with good representation of a variety of people and communities. They include opportunities for learning and flexible working hours. Staff strive to be efficient and fair in their work processes. However, like any large municipality progress, change and responsiveness can be slower due to administrative processes.

Lack of Leadership and Direction
There is a lack of direction from Leadership and Direction. Promotions are not based on merit but favoritism. There is a lack of training to employees and career growth. Too much micro management.

One of the best work place in Toronto
Working for The City as a Computer Tutor is the best experience ever. People are so collaborative. The environment is friendly.
The hardest part of the job is when dealing with difficult clients but with the support of my team members everything goes smoothly and ends up with satisfied clients.

Tenured and/or Qualified Professionals Beware
The City culture can best be described as submissive and the work, even within higher levels of administration, is transactional. Leadership is weak and Management unqualified - recognized by both management and leadership. Average training provided to employees is significantly below industry average . Many divisions receive less than 6 hours of training per year.

Pros - Non-union salaries are respectable, great for new workforce entrants

Cons - Not suitable for tenured, qualified professionals who hope to bring their expertise to the City, Limited opportunities for upward career progression

Productive and social workplace with friendly atmosphere
I volunteered for the City of Toronto in order to earn volunteer hours to graduate from high school. While I had previous experience working with children, I was not used to working with staff or other volunteers.
The atmosphere at my location was very friendly and open, making it easy to get along with others and to learn new skills.
