Turning down TTC offer

Recommended Posts

Hi I got offered bus at Birchmount division which is the furthest division from me. I currently work for Mississauga transit and it’s closer. Just wondering if I turn them down for that reason will I be blacklisted from ever joining in the future or would I just have to wait 2 years?

I don't think it's possible for anyone not in the bowels of TTC HR to tell you.

Regardless of whatever the official posted policy might say, you have to ask yourself, "if they remember me, what will they think?" Of course it's possible that no one will remember you or look you up.

Anyway, why would you expect the location to be better if you slip through the gantlet next time?

You're in a seniority-based business.  Unless you are very young with no kids/wife or family.  In general, it's hard to move from one agency to another.  Minus the private operators all the public transit providers pretty much have similar pay and benefits.

Just know the work you're going to be getting for those first 10 months in probably night shift or on spare board. If you're looking for day work you will probably be looking at spare board with Tues weds off and 4 to 5 hour splits. It's a tough little bit. 

I know lots of guys trying to leave ttc for miway and if you already have seniority built there you may as well stay unless you're willing to sacrifice your time.

Like someone else replied, if you have a family, you won't be seeing them for a while especially if you live far unless you're willing to commit to nights. If you're single, nothing to worry about, do your time.
