    I worked at York Region full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great and they train you well. People are really friendly and nice and there is a lot of job security.

    Cons

    All the cons that come with working in a government position but since it is a government position it should be expected. Advancement based on seniority can be problematic.

    Keep showing your employees that you care!
