very interesting workplace
Diesel Engine Attendant / Production Worker (Current Employee) –  North Bay, ON8 January 2018
Ontario Northland Rail is the best Company i worked with in my whole Career.
The Company is giving me anytime the chance to learn new things.
Internal courses and the challenge to work on different positions.
The health and safety standards are very high and it gives me a good
feeling to working there.
The high quality standards at the ONR let me learn a lot about
quantity and quality procedures in production processes.

Awesome team of co-workers
Customer Service Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  North Bay, ON11 April 2017
A typical day at work would be a fast pace and high stress environment, dealing with arrivals and departures of buses. Making boarding calls, selling tickets, shipping freight. Work place culture, would be like any other workplace, wearing our uniforms and proper footwear to insure safety in the work place. The hardest part of my work would be dealing with upset customers, yelling and cursing at you. Either because they are upset because they cannot get a refund on a reserved ticket or there is no seating available. No matter how calm you stay or how nice you try to explain to them..they will still yell and curse. The most enjoyable part for me would be gong above and beyond for a customer and making their day. They thank you and tell you " you are the best". I'm just glad I could make them smile and make their day.
Pros
paid expenses
Cons
high stress environment

Fast paced and friendly work environment.
Customer Service Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  North Bay, ON15 August 2012
During a typical work day, I enthusiastically and politely answered phone inquiries, sold bus/train tickets, and billed out parcels.

I learned that good customer service is very important.

All of my bosses were respectful and accomodating.

The hardest part of the job was dealing with slow periods when there were no customers in person or on the phone.

The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with customers and co-workers.
Pros
reduced rates on bus and free rides on the train.
Cons
a lot of travel.
