City of Toronto Employee Review

Civil service knows no balance

Municipal government work is demanding involving long hours where if you calculate yhe hours that you work versus your salary, i think its on par with McDonalds.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Long hours no balance

suck the life out of you!

Fleet services within the City of Toronto is so top heavy! Contracted out all light duty vehicles and its the matter of time the rest is gone. Half the fleet is old worn out junk,and they wonder way it costs so much to repair....The repair shops are old,just like the mechanics! Designed to fail. good luck....

Waterfront Lifeguard

I was a Waterfront Lifeguard at Woodbine Beach this past summer. Best job i've ever had. The people where amazing even with the little bits of drama. The salary is fantastic, increasing when I was there. The work-life balance isn't great but the work becomes your life in all the best ways! Only complaint is the promotion system sucks as it depends on your city of Toronto hours as apposed to your Waterfront Lifeguard hours which can lead to some questionable promotion. All in all it was a great experience and I'll be returning next summer!
