I worked at Toronto Catholic District School Board full-time (More than 5 years)
Great environment, looks attractive on your resume to other employers. Data entry department was close knit, fun to work with.
Location, if you live in the west end of Toronto it's a bit of a stretch. There really isn't any other cons. Location was just a hassle at times.
Advice to Management
Maintain the great environment
Invited to an interview via e-mail. Interview consisted of a panel, 2 managers and HR. Questions were easy. However, only 2 of the 3 panel members took notes, the other did not write anything and seemed uninterested the entire time. It became apparent to me that this interview was just a facade. They already had a candidate in mind and were only going through this process as a formality. It was a complete waste of time, especially after having paid for parking as well.
