    Summer Student in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at Metrolinx for less than a year

    Pros

    You can get good experience depending on the department. Mostly get to do some cool work.

    Cons

    Organization this size, they should be paying more than the minimum wage for a summer student position. Their wage was 13.81 for at least 5 years before 2018, and with minimum wage increase they bumped it 19 cents. What a joke.

    Former Employee - Plant Serviceperson in Toronto, ON
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Metrolinx part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working here on a part-time contract. Although I was just maintenance and not customer service, I always looked out for our customers and their safety. Great people depending on the department, good pay compared to the same level in private sector for junior staff. Company is growing as they expand transit in the GTHA. Employees ride GO Train and Bus for free.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs wild, even if they say otherwise and favoritism comes first over skills and experience. Endured lots of backstabbing, however I just always was trying to concentrate on my job and not get involved in poli-tricks. Remember, it's not what you know, it's who you know. All I can say is its government and pretty similar in all agencies and ministry.
