Haven't done co-op yet, but I've heard from my profs:
1) 90% of eng students get co-op by the first month of their co-op term
2) Waterloo has connections with lots of companies/job positions, but it is up to you to provide a resume, apply, and go for the interview

They try to ensure that everybody who applies to the PEY program gets placed.
However, if you give a bad resume, blow off interviews with companies, etc.--basically, deliberately sabotage your placement--you won't get a job.
