    Current Employee - Supervisor in Mississauga, ON

    I have been working at Metrolinx full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great employees, Good Pay and benefits. Work environment is good providing you are working with the right people. Flexibility in your work.

    Cons

    Terrible West Region Management, especially in the last Five years. Unqualified individual destroying the way West Region yard is being run.

    Advice to Management

    Totally unprofessional Management of Wolfedale yard. The only good review is the one left by Management itself- So sad! Theft is by Management who directs staff to do it for them. Employees will not be bullied by broken backed Management. This regime will be overcome, the wheels are in motion, wait and see. Karma is good!

    Excellent work environment with positive growth and potential for advancement. Central office (generally). Constantly looking to improve the employee satisfaction at the work place.

    Salary has not been updated due to provincial wage freezes over the past many years. Not as competitive as other organizations any longer. Good candidates no longer applying as a result of the ranges.

    Review policies for compensation. Do not spread out the corporation.
