Lead Station Attendant (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 6 February 2017
I worked as a unionized employee and as a manager at Air Canada. Working almost 15 years as a unionized team leader, I always put the safety on my team, the companies assets and the passengers as my first priority. I was always proactive and did my best to solve any issues at the lowest level possible.
Station Attendant Air Canada Cargo Toronto (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 February 2017
It still operates basically like a crown corporation and offers many great benefits to its long standing employees. The tough part is you will need to work irregular hours until you accumulate enough seniority to hold a regular time bid spot. Overall it provides travel opportunities and great experience if that's what you are looking for.
Lead Cabin Service Attendant & Manpower Planner (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 27 January 2017
I worked at Air Canada for 22 Years the job is great The cons of the job is poor management...and lack of training in many areas The job is easy it's the lazy union people around you that make the job hard.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON – 26 January 2017
Like anywhere, there are frustrations with management. Keep your expectations low, follow the rules, follow SOP, work safely, enjoy making new friends. The most enjoyable part would be all the coworkers. Management depends on whom you were dealing with as far as support. Upper management make way too much money and as an employee you can feel very insignificant and undervalued at contract time! The worst part and the best part of the job are the same...the Passengers...they can be so difficult and mean while there are those gems that are appreciative and kind.
Station Attendant (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 20 January 2017
To start a Typical work day was based on your bid position. Over the course of this summer i dealt with flights to the US and Canada.
We worked hard, we worked fast and we got the flights out even when we didn't have all the equipment for it. Some days we were short-handed so we had a larger workload, quite a few of the days we were payed for 30 extra minutes because they'd cut our lunch.
Air Canada is a union environment and it felt like the union always had your back, like and older brother or a best friend. Most everyone treats you like family over there. In a few words: Solidarity, Respect, and friendship.
The hardest part of the job for me was the training and extra work given to you over the online programs they had.
I most of all enjoyed the community, the responsibility, the hard work and the feeling of someone always being there for you. I found as i worked at Air Canada a sense of place, meaning and purpose and now with out it i feel lost.

Lead Cabin Service Attendant (Acting) (Current Employee) – Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON – 13 January 2017
A day at work at Air Canada, could be both stressful and easy going. Depending on the weather things could go smoothly. It is a very fast paced company that gets tasks done on the second. The management team is efficient and works with employees to work towards the finish line. Co-workers turn into family, we see each other almost 6 days a week, you get to learn a little bit about every individual everyday. the Hardest part of the job would be, working in the weather, there will be times where it'll be -20 or +38. You have to be prepared for what ever the day is going to offer you. The most enjoyable part of the job would be, having everyone working as a team, woking fast and efficient is a key to a smoother day.
Customer Sales and Service Agent (Former Employee) – Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON – 12 January 2017
the constant flow of passengers makes for an amazing experience. the communication between staff is great and allows for a successful travel experience for passengers. I learnt all lobby positions and its importance and enjoyed each and every one of them. The hardest part of the job would be having to sympathize with passengers that missed their flights because there is nothing that I personally could do. I enjoyed most being able to hep passengers check-in and be on their way in a timely manner because i knew they were happy with the speedy process.

If you like to travel and love dealing with and meeting people from all over the world, this this the job for you. Expect to not be home often and plan to be away for most holidays . It can get very lonely at times, but you make allot of wonderful friends on the job.
Working for Air Canada for over a year has opened up a window of opportunity for myself as a young professional enetering into the work force. The exposure to their internal process has enriched both my work and university experience. The employees and management are all highly supportive and offer useful career advise.
Supportive staff, great work environment, good benefits
