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.

Very good part time hours. Fellow co-workers are usually friendly and helpful. Hardest part of the job is dealing with the public, they think you owe them something.

Wading Pool Attendant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 March 2018
I have only worked one summer with the city, and it was a great summer. Working as a Wading Pool Attendant meant working a lot, with lots of shifts available as well, which is always nice to be able to work as much as possible. The only con I would have is one of my bosses took her job too seriously. Other than that, excellent.
Pros
Lots of work available, working outdoors, pretty good pay.
Cons
Took 11 days after pay period ended to pay

Constituency Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 March 2018
I worked as the assistant to a City Councillor, and I must say for being a pretty large company (it is the city) there are some pretty good pros, like they really encourage you to go out and explore Toronto, and offer great perks and benefits and try to keep you aware of them. The downsides of my job were that people often came into the office or called to complain about the city, and so if you are not aware and able to keep your emotions in check it becomes pretty tough.

Special Needs Program Staff (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 March 2018
...with little monetary gain. If you work part-time with the recreation stream of City of Toronto your hours are often poor, with hourly rates that aren't competitive. Great culture and atmosphere, but I only work here for fun. My shifts are normally only 3 hours long, and often isn't worth the travel.
Pros
Culture, People
Cons
Pay, Hours

Well balanced job provided favoritism can be reduced and staff efforts could be recognized objectively.
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 February 2018
Since the City of Toronto is run with the Property tax payers' and other taxpayers' funds, the Management staff attempts to gain higher level of accountability.
Pros
Enjoyable part is a comprehensive competitive salary and benefit package.
Cons
To manage the Unionized staff. Additionally, higher management's favoritism practices.

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.
