Customer Sales Lead Agent (Former Employee), Halifax Stanfield Int,l AirportMarch 3, 2013
Pros: having the opportunity to meet and work with alot of great people.
Cons: sometimes having to make unpopular decision with regard to staff and passengers.
I would start my day at 2:10 in a.m., at work at 3;15 open the office at 3;30 and commence duties at 3:30. Greet staff and arrange their duties for the day. Deal with approximately 3,000 passengers per day. At 9;30a.m. I would attend the morning operational meeting to discuss the days events, staffing requirements and any other irregular operations.
Throughout – more... the day, I would oversee the operations and primarily handle any disgruntle passengers and staff.
The day would end 12 hours or so later, pending on operational requirements. – less

Air Canada is a good place to work.
Ramp agent (Current Employee), Calgary, ABFebruary 24, 2013
Pros: travel benefits.
Cons: crazy late and early hours.
I do enjoy working at Air Canada.
A typical day at the airport involves being good with customers, while trying to make sure the flight leaves on time.
Also, you must make sure you follow all relevant company policies and governmental regulations.
:
Not everyone at Air Canada is a cool dashing pilot. Many of the jobs are difficult, and often outside.

However, – more... you do get to learn what you are good at. – less

Instructeur (Current Employee), montreal quebecJanuary 5, 2013
Pros: insurance benefits health and travel
Cons: salary very low and even though i got hired as an instructor no pay raise
I learned to work different departements , there is no typical day at work when working for a commuter airline .
I learned to train others, responsabilities for managerial tasks like evaluations and many more other tasks , received a certificat after taking a trainers coarse on creating and giving lesson plans .
The hardest part of the job was trying – more... to give a coarse and the training environment works at only a percentage therefor it made it very difficult to give the corse when the material is not working .
Working with agents assisting them to find ways to hlp passengers stuck in cities due to cancelled flights and unable to find a way out. It is very gratifying to help people get where they need to be – less

Station Attendant, PT (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBDecember 18, 2012
If you are willing to work at Air Canada as well as have another job to go along with, it would be a good job. They pay isnt great, but the benefits are.

hello i love airplanes and have lots of experience in customer service how does one get into the company to start i so badly want to work for Air Canada but find it hard to get the call.

February 16, 2013

That is kind of a silly thing to say...pay coincides with your position and skill set. If you are a manager you are well into 6 digits with additional performance bonus. They have a very fair payscales and are one of the best airlines to work for worldwide..check the stats...number 10 on the list in the whole world!

a good place to work overall. Most of co workers and passengers are great.
Flight Attendant/Service Director (Former Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 10, 2012
Pros: travel. free coffee, tea, juice and water :)
Cons: long days, and not very mentally stimulating.
A lot of safety related duties with great customer service.
I learned that it's not that hard to listen to peoples needs and meet those needs, or come close with a win win attitude and resolution.
Management is on the other side of the pole, but with 3700 flight attendants in Toronto alone, it's hard not to be just another number.
Co-workers are what – more... makes the job fun.
Hardest part of the job, is being away so long. Sometimes 14-16 hour days. Getting proper rest while on the road.
Most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and working with new people and getting a chance to explore new cities and cultures while on layovers. – less

Not a fun place to work
Customer Services and Sales Agent (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABOctober 6, 2012
Terrible company to work. Management treat employees really bad starting from the general manager. Air Canada head office is a waist of time to complaint, they don't care about the employee. Union cannot do anything for the employee pay for no reason. You have to work crazy hour even holidays, no life and pay is even worse. Waist of time in your life, – more... your opinion don't matter.
No matter how hard you work they always say you don't have performance, what a compliment from management . They only beleive the management. Good luck – less

Hectic day at start, assigning work, ordering parts, being on top of daily issues, consulting with management, being a part of the team with your co-workers and management, to get alone with every one, accomplishment and fulfillment of the task at the end of the day.
