TDSB Grounds Crew Summer Student Job
This job is great for university students – great pay, decent hours, and not too strenuous work. I enjoyed the summer I worked here but the people can be extremely ignorant.

An excellent employer and a fulfilling career
As a part time worker, I was treated with respect and support unlike any I have received in full time positions. The care extended to the students is also given to staff and it created a warm, welcoming work environment where anything seemed possible.

Teachers and their assistants should be given medals especially in special needs classrooms.
I worked with compassionate, caring and intelligent educators and caregivers while maintaining a happy, healthy workplace. It was difficult sometimes to leave work at work but other than that, it was a pleasant culture overall.
Pros
Spending time with great kids and young adults with special needs
Cons
Can be stressful as when dealing with special needs, you never know what the day is going to bring.

Very large Management
It is a comfortable place to serve. The job is very much secured. But the job description is not like real job. The operating job is around 15% and 85% is not related with Operating Engineer's job. The job having lot of responsibilities.

Productive workspace
I enjoyed working at the TDSB as a volunteer custodian as it was a productive and easy going workspace. The people I worked with there were very easy to get along with and were always helpful should I have any questions or require a demonstration with new tasks I was assigned.

Productive and encouraging work environments, which foster life-long learning
While being an elementary teacher can be difficult, it is also one of the most rewarding careers. At the TDSB, we are encouraged to engage in relevant, equity-based professional development that will translate directly into our worksites. It is an environment that fosters and encourages life-long learning.

Love it
TDSB is the best place to work.
It can be fast paced and stressful sometimes. Management is supportive.

You may end up working on your own though you are a part of the team, but if you thrive in this culture, it is a huge positive. You will feel recognised, valued and appreciated for your work

If you love working with kids, You'll enjoy workign for the TDSB
I work a 8am_4pm daily, as a supply swometimes there are no jobs and its hard. Ensure you have a backup job if need steady income. My day at work is stressful but rewarding becasue the students i work with. AWe need to get paid better thats for sure. Management is very helpful and depepending on the school supportive. The hardest part of the job is having to dseal with behaviors, the enjoyable part is when a student reaches a milestone or is successful.
Pros
short days
Cons
BEhaviors and students abuse

Media Reports are true, the TDSB is a backwards organization
A terrible place to work. Always felt like I was expendable and not of the level to even talk to my managers. Constantly lived in fear while there. It was a noncollaborative place where almost no one was happy.

It is very rewarding but sometines they are challenges beyond your control,
My typical day is very busy working with children with autism and learning chalenges. We try to administer the curriculum but it can be challenging since all children learn differently.
Pros
Rewards when you see your students graduate

Dynamic, enthusiastic, warm and responsible RECE
I would arrive at work and greet all he children and staff. I learned that children have a mind of their own and we shoudl honor that. The management is always there to listen and assist if I have a question.The children from all background are treated the same including children with "special needs." The hardest thing about the job is not to be able to go out when it is rainy outside. Every day is a new adventure with this lovely children
Pros
be outside and do phsyical activity with the children
Cons
not having enough material at times
