FIRST STUDENT CANADA Review
Mechanic (Co-op) (Former Employee) –  Bowmanville, ON21 October 2013
So this workplace was well. My supervisor was absolutely amazing. The workers were amazing. There would be times I'm told to do a task and I do it, and i break something or messed up, it made me scared that they would get mad when i told them.

It was always the opposite, they never cared if you made a mistake or messed up. They would always just say, yea we'll fix that.

It was not a bad place for a co-op experience, but i definitely wouldnt do it again.
Pros
Great Co-workers, Great Diesel Mechanic Placement, Fun new tasks to learn

Loved my job
Shop Assistant (Former Employee) –  St. Thomas, ON19 March 2018
Loved my job, I learned many things and my coworkers are all very friendly & nice. I was responsible for ordering parts, returns, picking up parts. Shop manager assistant, I did what was needed to be done. Due to downsizing and restructuring my job was eliminated, so sad because I totally loved it, and it certainly wasn't for the pay. I learned many things about buses, parts, inventory processes
Pros
Full time, great people
Cons
Not best wages, head office had most control being in usa it was different in Canada they didn't understand that
