Do not apply here! Support from upper management is non-existent, they do not care about their employees, pay is bad, and no room to move up. For the most part the people who work front-facing positions are great, passionate people, but management does not care about these people. These are the people who love film but the staff who work in management have no passion for film, incredibly deflating and uninspiring. And the salary is terrible, TIFF is notorious for not paying people enough which is why they have such high turnover. And between November 2019 and June 2020 they have laid off 50 full time employees.

One of the best experiences of my life was volunteering at TIFF. It is an incredible place to be as you get to experience all walks of life and partake in an incredible culture of film and entertainment. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS WORK PLACE - I wish I could be there all year long.

Open concept offices that encourage employee relations and cooperation. Fun place and relaxed atmosphere, and managers and supervisors were very easy to get along with.

A lot of activity at the TIFF offices - such an inspiring place to work. Everyone there is so passionate and really loves what they do. The team is young and dynamic and collaborative!

Working Festival is very demanding. It becomes an insane zoo of people, so buckle up. They were very accommodating with any changes you'd need in regards to re-routing, etc.

Not a great place for growth in the organization or as a person. They expect too much from their employees and keep merging several positions in one person's job.

TIFF is a great place to work, great people. Yet the interview process was tough, very formal, and much more like a test than an interview. A day at work is quite relaxed, the office is fairly quiet, and everybody is quite intelligent.

Great way to meet people who love film and to do some celebrity sightseeing. A typical day for me would be guarding the green room and checking tickets for entry and re-entry.

I had the chance to meet new people and enjoy the experience. Everybody was so friendly and the environment made it fun to work at TIFF.

It was a fast paced and lively environment so it is difficult to get bored. You are always doing something!

Great workplace! There's a reason people come back year after year, decade after decade. Expect to work hard, but be rewarded with great experiences and friends.

I sold tickets, memberships and redeemed packages through debit, credit or online transactions. Used Arctics software to navigate members' accounts in assisting them in finding their tickets online. The stressful days consisted of high volumes of customers ordering multiple tickets at once which sometimes caused the software to crash. Perks of the job were great as I was able to watch free movies on my day off.

Learned a lot and acquired experience in a new field.
TIFF has a great work environment with flexible hours. Managed my communication skills and how to work within a large team. It was a supportive work environment, wherein everyone was respectable of others.
