Database and Software Applications Developer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 April 2018
This is a great place to work and I encourage anyone with the opportunity to work here to do so. The people working there are all friendly, everyone says hi to each other as they pass each other in the hallways. Great opportunity to learn new things about your community.

Streetcar Operator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, On29 March 2018
Good front line job with a gov't subsidized company. Be ready for lots of overtime, and rude people (riding public). Management are usually former operators, but it seems like they forgot what it was like to be in the seat of an operator. Union at the time was good, but has apparently gone downhill. Very easy to find yourself in trouble if you don't cover your every action without union representation.

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

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
