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.
