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

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!

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.

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.

very misleading job interviews. HR all contractors reading a script and have no idea what your job really in tales. All expansion contracted out although they will not tell you that. Massive nepotism everywhere. Absolutely no communication form senior management about anything ever. Union a management puppet that does nothing for you unless you are a bus driver.

The work comes in waves, it gets busy fast. People are generally nice although a selected few people are difficult to deal with. It's a government job, which means job security is good.

It is definitely a great place to work, the work load is distributed in a fair and reasonable way, most of your coworkers will go out of their way to train you if you ask. The CEO is a very nice guy as well and personally meets with the back office employees.

Lots of politics and I was so uncomfortable I ended up leaving...The customer service call centre was a small environment so everyone is already in cliques and management (some not all) were no exception. Very "high school" and taxpayers should see all of the free unnecessary food they lavish you with
