    I have been working at Durham Region Transit part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is incredible, you're always meeting and interacting with new people. you're not just in one place for 8 hours.

    Cons

    I guess the only con is it takes a long time to get full time and not the greatest shifts when you first start.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great, if you have a problem they will do alot to help you.

    Amazing job for full time students. I took job for 3 years. Everyone is extremely friendly and willing to help out.
