General Labourer in Montréal, QC
on 30 October 2020
great benefits and basic salary
I ve been at ViaRail for almost 14 years.I work in the servicing area mainly emptying,filling and steriliizing water reservoirs under the trains frame for use in above areas such as kitchens and washrooms.There are also about a dozen other tasks atributed to the general worker position pertaining to the cleanlyness of the trains
Senior Service Attendant in Toronto, ON
on 18 January 2021
Most dangerous place to work
Great interviewHowever between the person who hired meAnd the people who I was working for clearly had different opinion on what they wantedThe training team were not helpfulNeither were the on the job supervisors Management is not helpful or nurturing This is a dangerous place to work and I another using this term lightly They also put my life they're known lives and the passengers lives in danger because of they're own bureaucracy and blindnessDO NOT WORK FOR VIA
Diesel Mechanic in Vancouver, BC
on 8 December 2020
Terrible work environment
They make promises that never happen, lie about how good the pension and benefits are. Management has no idea how to run a company or a shop. They only send you to school for level 1 and level 2. The shop morale is terrible... Seemed like a good job but realized it's all a lie after. There just looking for cheap labor.
Station Attendant in Toronto, ON
on 19 November 2020
Fast paced but enjoyable!
Working here is a balance between fast paced and relaxed. During high travel seasons it gets busy, but in your off time, you can pretty much relax as long as you're visible to passengers and available to help if needed. Training is easy and everyone felt like family. Yes, it can be stressful at times, but what job isn't?
General Worker in TMC mimico, Ont
on 3 September 2020
Easy work, Few benefits As a new hire no job security.
You might work 4 out of 8 hours. You learn what you want, the more you learn the more you can do. I got along with management, the people who like to whine do not. No real work place culture to speak of it's a government organization with government rules.The hardest part of the job is knowing no matter how hard you work it means nothing. There is nothing you can do to advance aside from wait for others to retire or quit.The sense of pride from knowing I did my job well.If you have a shift or position someone more senior to you wants they can take it. If your a better work the shift suffers, if you know more the shift suffers. If you were hopping to see your family you, and your family, suffer.The Union will work against you if it protects people senior to you.
