Food Service Worker (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 February 2019
Working for the City of Toronto for the past 6 years has been an uphill climb. A day in children services is never the same. A typical day consist of preparing daily delivered food items for the children for their lunch. Wash, peel, cut vegetables, fruits and other food items for the daily snacks and lunches. Maintain a clean and sanitary work environment daily. Interact with parents and staff throughout the day as well.

As of right now, I don't find anything hard or difficult at the child care center I work at. Each day provides challenges which I can handle appropriately. The most enjoyable part of my day is seeing all the smiling faces of the children I serve, they really make my day go by fast.
Pros
Freedom to work alone, benefits, hourly wage
Cons
Short hours, part time work

Great benefits and ability to have work life balance.
BUSINESS ANALYST (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 February 2018
There's a distinct hierarchy environment - if you're management or senior management you'll do well. There is not much opportunity for you to grow as there are workplace politics that goes on hence redundant career path....The only thing good about this organization is the benefits and work life balance... depending on your manager, team culture may suck.. if you have a bad manager, your experience will be bad but if you have a good manager, it drives the success of the team and overall project success.

Has a lot of problems with higher up staff
Pool Manager (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON29 January 2019
The line of problems start from the top and trickle down. It has everything to do with who you work with and most people there are too comfortable and treat their work and coworkers as such. Wouldn't recommend it unless you're trying to move up and make it better.
Pros
pretty good wage, easy to move up and good job security
Cons
unbearable work conditions at times due to staff

Work weird hours
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  York Recreation Center12 October 2018
Management tries their best to schedule but it isn't doesn't always done properly. Hours are small and if you plan on working a full 40 hours then you will get weird hours and lose on on your social life a bit. But Coworkers are usually very friendly.
