    I have been working at Toronto Hydro full-time

    Pros

    Great people and managers ( depending on dept) to work from great starting salary and benefits

    Cons

    Lots of office politics and high employee turnover can make one very uneasy to feel comfortable or supported in your role.

    Advice to Management

    Fix toxic work cultures from the top - down to retain high performing employees and make a safer work environment

    Former Employee - Accounts Receivable Clerk in Toronto, ON

    I worked at Toronto Hydro for less than a year

    Pros

    Your safety is taken seriously, you will have a comfortable and ergonomically designed workstation. The pay was solid for a student job. The people are all quite friendly/patient there, which is important given that there is a fair amount to learn before becoming adept at the job. Overall clean workplace/bathrooms/cafeteria area.

    Cons

    Main tasks are quite mundane and repetitive, which is expected given this is essentially a data entry position. If you have extra time (which you inevitably will), I'd suggest asking for more to do so as not to sit around twiddling your thumbs. It occurred to me that MANY processes could have been automated/optimized in some ways; unfortunately such changes are difficult to have approved. In terms of general stuff some...

    Pros

    Engaging tasks that give a snapshot into what the other parts of the company do and how they work. Friendly management staff and co-workers

    Often not enough work, results in sitting at desk doing nothing. Every task is covered in red tape and has to be approved by so many people before work can continue
