Good Employer and good benefits. Excellent facility.
A day in the life at the M.T.C. C. C.Doing your daily checks always gives you satisfaction of being ahead of any potential problems before you get the calls. Going through the work space and interacting with all levels of staff management, contractors and clients keeps your senses sharp in a fast pace environment. Dealing with calls so they can be resolved quickly. People can be difficult particularly people in distress. This puts your skills to the test in deescalating tense or awkward situations. The diversity of shows and events never ceased to amaze me.

Negative Sales Department Culture
Sales Department leadership historically has been a negative culture. Very top down negativity and damaging angry bird reputation. Grateful for other departments that get it and appreciate their staff! Operations teams work very hard.
Some exciting events and access to shows.

Central location close to hotels and Sports Centres for guests.

Event space gets refurbished when run down.
Pros
Central Location and hard working operations teams.
Cons
Distrust in Sales and no sense of positive work culture.

Productive workplace
Typical day at work would be clocking in and going straight to my station, as I learned that it was a little tough. The management and workplace culture was good, as the hardest part of the job was the long hours and the most enjoyable part of the job were the great co-workers.

Good and Bad
I had a great experience working at the ICEE Truck. Other than that, I was not happy with the experience because of the management, morale, "discount lunch" and attitude of recruiters.

Seasonal/Event Job
The jobs were specific to the event you were working for, but overall the setting is great, security is mostly functional, and the facility is impressive. Management, difficulties I faced, and a typical day at work depends on which event you are working for.

Great Corporate Culture with many major events.
The Metro Toronto Convention Center is a excellent place to work as they provide services to cater to large events.

A typical day in the purchasing department, includes accepting internal requisition from various departments and then turning these requisition to purchase orders.


Learn that time management and paying attention to product detail is very important.


Co-workers consisted of a team of 3 individuals, therefore it was a great place to work at it was easy to communicate with all members in department.


Hardest part- Managing internal requisition during rush hour periods, from over 50 departments.


The most enjoyable part of the job includes meeting various people from events.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Travelling Downtown
