TTC was provided a decent work environment. Hours are okay, pay is good, and the management is somewhat tolerable. I wouldn't say this job is for your typical worker.

Bus Operator
Bus Operator (Former Employee) –  Wilson Division25 January 2018
18 months in, assaulted physically 4 times of my last 6 months, made reports within Transit, nothing to claim after seeing my Dr. diagnosed with P.T.S.D, in claims of time off through W.S.I.B. Transit claims they have no documents pertaining to my claim to W.S.I.B.

Management is a fkning joke at Wilson Division. They are puppets who act like their someone but overall lack the intelligence of their position. Same goes with the Stupidvisors.. most not all, but most are SLOW, Fat and Lazy and pass the buck on to each other when taking care of matters.. they do not like filing or reporting or doing their job.

I only give Kudos to the Drivers and Wicket guys.. that's it, they work hard! Its a tuff skin job.. but when nothing is done about claims of assault, you gotta ask yourself.. am I going to do this for the next 25 years for a company who doesn't have your back? Your just another #.. that's it! replacable
Pros
Benefits and wages
Cons
The General Public are MOFO's to you just for wearing the Uniform, Supervisory Staff are shi8, The Union is Shi8, Your Shop Stewards are a bunch of Stu's.

Harrassments are not taken seriously
Station Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 January 2018
Non-Union Harassment and discriminators are disguised as Managerial discretion. Human Rights and Employee Relations departments need to be outsource, independent and off site.
Union related issues are not represented properly as Union and Management are no longer separate.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Have to sacrifice integerity to be accepted into the culture

it is a great company to work for as far as financially but you take alot of abuse from the public
Bus operator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 January 2018
I would have stayed with ttc if there was more equipment that is of more benefit for the drivers and not the company. The company has been around and is not going to go under or you will lose your job, you can advance in some postions if you choose those spots
Pros
benefits, salary, i like working with people
Cons
shifts can be long and hard on family

Stressful work environment
Day General Clerk (Retired) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 November 2017
The TTC has good benefits and salaries but can be a stressful work environment. The division I worked at had grown in size by fifty percent but the support staff to assist this growth had only been increased by one employee during my tenure. Some jobs (operating) have very difficult shift work and irregular off days which are not conducive to a good work/life balance. If you remain at the TTC for a long period of time work/life balance improves. I recently attended a retirement party and most people I spoke with were ecstatic that they were able to retire and follow other interests.
Pros
Good Salary and Benefits
Cons
Stressful work environment

tough when starting out
Station Collector (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 October 2017
very challenging, lack of help, pressure always very immense from management.
On your own, not much support to understand how the operation runs.
Technology and communication to employs needs to be better very outdated way of doing business.
