Depends on your job.
If in frontline transit operations; bus/streetcar/Subway operator and collectors, expect to be micromanaged and under the eye of management constantly. Also expect abuse from the public, verbal and physical.
Pay, Benefits and Pension are good but they have to be otherwise no one will do this work .
"Work" entails, long hours, shifts and no weekends. Long hours/shifts = split shifts where you work 4 hours, get 4hours off and work 4hours again. Once you add reporting time, you are looking at 13hr days but only get paid your working hours.
New hires will get the worst shifts, expect working splits and nights for at least 5-6years. No weekends off until you hit 15-20years.
Streetcar/subway operator, you will kill someone. That's a statistical fact.

It's 40hrs per week.
However it's how you get those 40hrs that sucks.
As a new hire, expect no weekends off for at least 5-6years if you're lucky.
Expect split shifts. 4 hours on, 4off, 4on again. But only get paid for 8hrs.
Expect to work all hours of the day and night.
They are only obligated to give you 8hours off. So you may get a shift that ends at midnight but they expect you to be driving again at 8am. It's only 8 hours off work, they don't care about your commute, taking a shower, eating etc. As long as you have 8 hours off the job you can go back again.
