Summer Job Spotlight ... Multiple Toronto Transit Commission summer job opportunities available

I know, I know ... we aren't in the new year and some organizations are already recruiting for their 2016 summer jobs! As they say, the early bird gets the worm.

So if you're ready to start applying for summer jobs and available to work from May 2, 2016 to August 26, 2016, then consider the range of summer jobs with the TTC - but act quickly, as the application window is quite short due the large volume of applications the TTC receives each year.

Here is a list of TTC summer jobs that the TTC's HR team is currently looking to fill:
  • Accounting Clerk
  • Carhouse Helper (vehicle cleaner)
  • Carhouse Operator
  • Clerical
  • Escalator Mechanic’s Helper
  • Fire Prevention
  • Landscaping
  • Metropass Discount Plan Representative
  • Operating Garageperson
  • Station Ambassador
  • Station Collector
  • Storeperson
  • Subway Janitor
  • Wheel-Trans Reservationist (Call Centre)
For more information on each job, download the TTC Summer Jobs 2016 job descriptions (PDF).

Because the TTC operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you must be flexible and willing to work shift work - according to the job ad, 80% of the positions available involve working shifts (afternoons, evenings, overnight, weekends, holidays).

In order to be eligible, you must meet be a full-time student, enrolled in full-time studies at a secondary or post-secondary institution, and returning to full-time studies in the fall. Some positions will also require a non-probationary Ontario Driver’s Licence (class G). And successful candidates will be required to undergo a criminal records search prior to the start of your contract.

To apply, visit the TTC's Careers page, create an account, and submit your cover letter and resume via their job search portal. And remember, the deadline for applications is Monday, December 7, 2015.

Good luck!
