I enjoyed my 30 years with mto and also enjoy retirement benefits from this provincial government
sign shop foreman (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON29 July 2013
several minutes before start time most employees would talk over previous evenings sports etc and then discuss work plans for the day I would then assign the drivers a description of their days work and who would be with them. I would ask each driver if he had questions pertaining to the days work , I would advise them of my whereabouts for the day incase of a problem. The hardest part would be in inclement weather getting to the job site and protecting the work area from the public motorists, the most enjoyable would be the comradery amoungst fellow employees, and the satisfaction of clearly marking out the travel routes for motorists, the distance remaining for their trip and placing curve signs etc in a well situated location in abidance with MTO regulations
Pros
we were paid a meal allowance, and if we were required to work out of town we were compensated for hotel
Cons
worked in all weather

Amazing work-life balance, job security, however not the most productive workplace.
TECHNICAL ANALYST (Former Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON7 May 2018
The ministry of transportation takes care of its workforce ensuring that all employees are represented by a union, provided benefits and ensuring that all competitions within in the company are fair and just. The only drawback to working at the Ministry of Transportation is that the workplace does not have a productive atmosphere. Every employee is very nice and it is a very positive work culture. The only issue is that with little work being done at times it can be a little boring and in the long-term does not prepare employees for job advancement.
Pros
Benefits, Union, Fair Competition
Cons
Poor Work Ethic

Executive Transportation Services (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 February 2018
A typical day involves driving senior members of Queens Park to their destinations.
The job usually gives advanced notice of the run details. Dispatch is very accomadating as long as communication is kept current.
The hardest part of the job is not having a set schedule. as this is an on-call position.
The best part is interacting with people.
Pros
Meet very interesting people who impact our lives in Ontario.
Cons
no set schedule.
