Good pay and balanced work life

I recommend working at Max, a good public sector company with good pay and benefits and professional work cultureYou need to be assignable about construction and have skills to deal with vendors as most part of the job you will be doing vendor management

Worst place to work

Corporate treated employees like numbers. Very high turnover and management in HR at Head office were very wicked and talked behind each others back. Have to look over your shoulder.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Management & Senior Management bad

Fast paced

Very fast paced, focused environment. Would recommend Metrolinx to anyone. Management is inclusive and understanding. Lots of room for growth and opportunities.

Secure job with good pay

Solid job. First 2 or 3 years as a bus driver is very difficult, as it's a unionized workforce an your location an shifts are decided by seniority. Expect to be sent far away from home an work very odd hours. Pretty much no work life balance for the first 2 to 5 years. After that it gets much better. Excellent benefits, health and dental for you and immediate family. Guaranteed pay. 3 weeks vacation. Good pension. Difficult to advance in the company. Overall it's a good job after you've put in about 5 years.

Pros

Good pay, secure company

Cons

Various shifts far from home, No work life balance, not much room for advancement

Depressing. Robotic

Very little hope for advancement. But if you're happy with the same thing over and over, it's tolerable. Work life balance is non existent, and efforts seem to me made to keep it that way.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Dead end job

Ok

Okay but difficult to advance depending on your division. It's a government agency so agility is not its strong suit but it's trying to build in this capacity.

Good Work-Life Balance but no place for growth

The company provides good work-life balance with job security and decent pay. Management is really poor with no clear direction or workscope. Everyone is trying to figure out what they are there to do. More resources than work, with no clear defined strategy.

Pros

work- life balance, salary

Cons

no growth, non technical wok

Environment & Team Work

Too much politics & used contracts & they promise will hires that never 👎 happened even you pass written test & already works two years they will never hire In the front they show you we are doing good & best but behind what they do. Feel like they play game

Cons

Not Satisfied

Interesting Work, but unweildy structure

A lot of good people, interesting and important work. Struggling to keep things in order perhaps a result of rapid growth and complex internal structure.

Good place to work

Great culture and interesting work. Can be very political working with various agency partners. Wide range of work going on from infrastructure projects to managing GO/UP.

Great place

Really loved working at Metrolinx. It's unionized, so if you're one of the new hires, you won't get good shifts, but that'll change once you've been there for a while. Most supervisors and management are really supportive/approachable. Lots of lateral and upward promotions/movement available.

Pros

Good pay, good co-workers, good benefits

Amazing internship experience

This was my favourite job experience to date. My job responsibilities include supporting the business analysts, who were extremely helpful, approachable and collaborative. I genuinely loved the work and ended up volunteering to job shadow for some projects. My team was fun and easy to work with!

Metrolinx PM

MetroLinks was a fast paced environment but had a lot of hurry up then wait. Senior project management were a bit spend crazy. These Program Managers Came from E-Health Often adding aspects to the project not required. Often arguing with more knowledgable people. Requesting servays and training programs be added to the project program that were not required. It was empire building at its best. As for the people on the ground I must say it was a pleasure working with them as they all were very knowledge in there fields and worked together as a well oiled team.

Great culture of support.

Excellent company to work for and some great people in the senior management team. The organization is politically driven which can cause decision making to be protracted in some areas, and lead to alot of frustration. Overall a great experience and one of the best employers I've had in my 30 plus year career.
