Great company

Worked for many companies but this was the best to date. Great pay, 35hr work week, relaxed work environment. The office location was perfect as well.

If you work hard and stay consistent, you will find your experience more than worthwhile. It was great exposure and learning experience and I would recommend HydroOne.

Just a number

Moto is Family for Life, they don’t care about you or your family, travel all over the province with little notice, Managers get bonuses based on squishing employees.

Great workplace, new challenges every day

I really enjoyed my Co-op at Hydro One. It's a safety oriented company, so a typical day started early with a daily crew talk and progress review. Management was always keen to remind everyone to stay safe. With the exception of job plans, I rarely ever did the same task from day to day. Learned a ton about Hydro One's infrastructure, both software and hardware. My coworkers were truly great sources of inspiration and advice. Only real hard part was getting used to the work culture, never experienced anything like it.


Free lunch during winter, highly supportive and collaborative environment


Long training/vetting process

Staff helpful and very supportive, generous and willing to help Co-Op students.

I had a great work term working for Hydro One. I learned a lot and did a ton of field work every day with MTECH and ADET staff. Inter-departmental communication better than many employers. Staff from other departments (Lines, Forestry) always willing to help and offer advice.


Some overtime available, able to see lots of different things/areas every day in the field.


Standard work hours, however, 7am-3pm work day does not leave much room for evening activities & leisure time, many days you come home exhausted and need to nap for an hour.

Provide all resource for your success

They pay well. Good structure. Depends on your manager. Overall professional place to work with all resources available to you. Mangers are generally accomodating to your needs unless its work-from-home requests. The job is comparatively easy if you are willing to learn and put real effort into your work. You will be recognized and rewarded according to the manager. This maybe in compliments, team acknowledgment. I have seen someone get a gift for putting in sincere effort in their day-to-day work.

I Was wrongfully terminated by power hungry management. He Maid up corrupt false documents to have me fired. Hydro one does not care about there employes. All you are to them is a number. For instance if your employe number is #897646 that’s all you are to them. Your name means nothing
