Good place to work for students

Amazing place to work while in school. Work tasks are minimum and there is flexibility in your work schedule. Make sure to choose a new community center to work as they will be better staffed and have more equipment to work with.

Fun

A lot of job opportunities but once you’re in you get hired for popular position based on seniority so that’s unfortunate. But can meet many new people and can be very fun depending on where you work

Great Place to work

Great place to work, especially as a student. Staff you work with are friendly and it is a great customer service job. Would recommend for a student as the hours are good.

Toxic workplace

STAY AWAY!! High turnover because anyone smart leaves MLS!! Little chance of advancement, lowest pay and more work than other cities. The lunatics are running the asylum! If you do apply and get in, start working on an exit plan!!

Waste of life

Dead end job. No challenge. No job security. No advancement. Managers are awful. Tied to closely political BS. It's good for people with no goal or motivation. Your health will likely decline from the lack of fulfillment dealing with absurd stupidity and feeling co.pleyely useless wasting each and everyday to do nothing even remotely rewarding

Pros

Benefits, pensions

Cons

Almost everything else.

Great Start

I went here for volunteering during high school in a summer camp, and it was great exposure to the professional world. Very easy but they can micro-manage and boss you around at times.

Low stress job that treats you well

Overall a great place to work that values its employees. You might have to do more or less work depending on if people around you pull their weight. But when everyone does their job it makes all your jobs easier.

Well paid and professional environment

Best paid ECE jobs and they insist on being professional. Lots of resources for professional education. Lack of vacation flexibility and need to start at part time are negatives.

Good student experience

Good co-op, lots of QC but also lots of opportunity to showcase your skills if you take initiative to ask for the right assignments. Lots of experience in the field as well.

Security and benefits

The City of Toronto is a great place to work especially starting out in one’s career. Higher positions demand longer hours and responsibilities but the pay doesn’t equal what is being asked.

Pros

Benefits and growth

Cons

Constant meetings, constant priority shifting

Full time is good

Better than part time with city, pay is better full time and you get benefits as well. Part time is still very good to get into the city and branch out
