A good start to build a solid career
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

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.
