I'll be applying, it's not my dream job by any stretch, but that salary is pretty attractive.

Must provide own car to perform duties


Interesting. I used my own car for a summer by-law job years ago, and it was a pain then.

Does anybody know the shift schedules for this type of position in Mississauga?

Also....

SALARY: $61,820 - $82,428


Any details on this? Do you start on the low end and eventually move up and top out at the $82k. If so, how long does it take to get there?

Many thanks.

Called the HR number 905 896 5035. They prompt you to leave a message in the general mailbox to have the call returned; didn't really feel like wasting their time with having to return the call for the salary query as they might be busy with other hirings.

I would think that the salary range is not based on the experience level since they didn't indicate that on the posting. It probably is a gradual increase over 3-4 years (unofficial probationary period) since the difference between the base and the top out salary is approximately 10 bucks an hour - 61,820 works out to be approx. $29.72 and 82,428 as approx. $39.62; assuming the stat pay and other variables remain unchanged with seniority.

This is not a unionized position, you start at the bottom of the pay grade and increase yearly based on cost of living and performance reviews
