Continually being spied upon. Have never worked at a company who searches for ways to discipline the employees. Always looking over your shoulder. Why ? Because there are secret riders watching you everyday! Military management team. A toxic environment to work in !
Pay / Benefits
Was hard and dirty and dangerous work working track level. Great crew and decent foreman’s but upper management easy to pounce if u make one mistake Best part was pay and benefits. Rain or shine work had to be done. The new generation I found are not like workers from older days Old timers worked lots harder
Shifts. Management with no knowledge but making decisions
Not a fun place to work. Extremely inadequate. Fear tactics and poor upper management. Was a great place to work but the upper management have lost touch with the lower levels. Communication is key but it's the same stuff forwarded from level to level and so on. Moral is in the dumps because of all the stepping on each other to advance.
Working at the TTC for 38 years was enjoyable. I was responsible for fare media distribution to the network businesses. I have learned most of my customer skills and how to supervise a union workforce. Management was the best easy to get along with and to work for over the years. Hardest part was dealing with union employees. The most enjoyable part was meeting all the different people over the years.

Work for the TTC for ten years and became extremely ill with a mental health issue that is generic in my family, and management went out of there way to do everything possible to get rid of me, but in the end I had to resign to get the help that I needed without the support from management at the TTC.
Kiss weekends goodbye for a few years and you don’t get to pick a regular crew right away. Overnight shifts suck. Patrons on some routes are just plain stupid and rude. Supervisors at control centre aren’t always the brightest bulbs. If you can handle always being at fault and biting your tongue, you’ll be ok.
TTC is a very unique place to work. Everything is slow pace here and since it has unionized workers, some show up just for a pay cheque - TTC could be be better. if some people could pick up just a paper off the floor for their whole job for the 8 hour shift, won't happen. They'll look at it, walk away and go take a nap. lot's of lazy workers who try to sneak under the radar. Tons of individuals are involved in time thefts.
Working at the Toronto transit commission is a great job if your people person. As you gain seniority your choices of work get better. Great benefits and job security Sometimes dealing with the public be a little stressful I find the management very political and sometimes do not have your best interest in mind
