    Current Employee - 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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Metrolinx for less than a year

    Pros

    The work environment was very friendly there, and for a student it was a great starting point. Well-structured training program. Convenient location, easily accessible by TTC. Work pace is somewhat laid-back (some senior management staff is extremely busy though)

    Cons

    Sometimes there are not enough work for all the summer students,
