    I have been working at Toronto District School Board

    Pros

    Big, urban school board. Lots of different roles available. . It's hard to get in, but once you're in, it's a good job.

    Cons

    Not a very proactive or progressive school board. Not a lot of training. Not a lot of options to move around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change all the policies all the time. Figure out what works and support it. New is not always better

    Pros

    Great people, nice to work outside in the summer, comfortable working pace

    Cons

    Very disorganized, awful management, has no appreciation for people at the bottom

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication is needed between the people doing the work and the people assigning the work. Less money should be spent on pointless things. (i.e. expensive phones and GPS)

    I have been working at Toronto District School Board

    Pros

    Chill environment. It's only a summer job. I just want access to other salary information and they're making me have to write a review.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. It's a government job, so work is not that stressful. And again I'm only a summer student.

    I have been working at Toronto District School Board part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, can be rewarding if your interested in teaching. This is an ideal job for any college student in STEM field who can communicate well.

    Cons

    If you don't live in the east end near Danforth Collegiate, the only school that I am aware of that has this program, it may take a while to get there, and it only runs two hours for each session twice a week. This program is run by teachers who are disorganized at times so payroll is fairly inconsistent.

    I worked at Toronto District School Board as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay, laid back atmosphere for the most part yet plenty of opportunities to contribute if your more of the A type personality! Able to make a positive impact on the community.

    Cons

    A little behind technologically. Apart from that, there really aren't any other cons I can think of. Some of the building are kind of old, but that can be nice sometimes!
