In-Charge Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 June 2015
Really it was the passion and dedication of the crews that made the job worth it. Always enjoyed working with everyone even when we had "interesting" passengers onboard or when management outright lied to the employees and eventually ran the airline into the ground. But all said and done I don't regret the 3yrs I was there.
Flight Attendant (Permanent) (Former Employee) – Toronto – 16 May 2015
Pre flight checks on emergency equipment, pre flight briefings with Captain and Incharge Flight Attendant. Customer service, First Aid. Maintaining safe cabin environment in relation to Transport Canada regulations.
Great company to have worked for! People are wonderful, staff is great with lots of room for advancement. I could not have asked for having worked for a better company! They really care about their employees and take care of them! The only reason why I had to leave is due to health complications.
Best part of the job is getting to meet new people, traveling of course and being able to have the most flexible job hours.
My enjoyment in this field was one of being associated with multiple venues within the Travel Industry. Goals and objectives were simply to make sure that everyone Knew that the organization existed, and that the services being offered were those of professional individuals who had total pride in their environment. I enjoyed representing this Organization, the potential was open to the skies. The hardest part of the job was adjusting to changes in direction at very short cycle timeframes.
Safety is the most important thing and always comes first is something I have learned from being a Flight Attendant. You have to be able to be quick on your feet and deal with any situation as you are in the sky and there is no turning back. You have to be able to work with new people on a daily basis and able to work well together is a definite requirement.
Being a Flight Attendant is a face paced job and you need to be able to multi-task and deal with whatever it is that comes your way.
I believe this job has helped me be able to be able to think on my feet which is definitely an asset that I believe will help me with whichever job I receive in the future.
Commercial Operations Team Leader (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 27 December 2012
- I would start my workday by sorting emails from shifts that I would have been off for. I worked in a 24 hour systems operations control center, so there were times that other team members would be responding to emails and requests while I would be off. I would confirm that emails were appropriately responded to. I would then monitor the morning start up of flights. ensure that all operations at all departing stations were going as planned before departures to minimize any delays. In-between monitoring day of flights, I would send out passenger manifests to all stations that required them for the next day flights. - I learned a great deal from working in this position from the people I worked with, Management, the job itself and the industry. It was a constantly learning environment and i thrived on this education, it was one of the great things about this position, i learned something new every day. - The management at canjet is an experienced group that I enjoyed working with and learned a great deal from. - My co-workers all had their individual great attributes. - The hardest part of this job was extreme irregular operations, particularly weather related. Weather related delays were difficult to plan for or make contingency plans for because of their uncontrollable nature. - The most enjoyable part of the job was all of the things I learned about the airline industry. during irregular operations the same solution could rarely be applied repeatedly, I liked brainstorming new contingency plans to get the company back on track.
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) – toronto on – 24 November 2012
base supervisors talk down to you very condescending , hours are horrible but this is expected with any airline job, not enough time off to enjoy your own life. coworkers write each other up base too small cupe rep abuses power
Was a great place to work- with colleges and friends alike- Way too much pettiness an gossip which if you are not liked you get penalized for. Don't have Facebook or any other personal social site as they do not like any political, religious or personal statements about ANYTHING! Regardless if it has to do with the company or not- which it never did. Management seems to favor those who started with the company over the new staff and the airline as a discount airline shows its discountedness!! Lak of safety equipment n features makes flying questionable.
made great friends!- union staff and contract was iffy!
management- safety features- pay- work hours- destinations- list goes on!
Incharge Flight Attendant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 May 2012
My review for the company is its Managed properly the customer service is exceptional all the crew work well together, This company is growing every year. The typical day at work is I get up at 3 am and get ready, and leave for the airport, I arrive at 4 am, Go up to my mailbox in the office read any memos, and make my way to the aircraft, Check my equipment say hello to the Flight deck and brief them on the details that I receive from the Capt. The education that I receive is on going, patience and having an open mind. My co-workers are all different, very nice and out going and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job is sometimes when we have delays, or someone just has too much to drink and gets abusive to the crew. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting travel for a very good deal, seeing the world, meeting different people from different cultures and getting educated everytime you visit somewhere new.
Directrice de vol (Former Employee) – Dorval, QC – 2 September 2014
J'ai trouvé très agréable de travailler chez Canjet airlines. L'équipe est formidable et il est facile de parler avec un superieur. On ne se sent en générale apprécier et écouter. Je suis toujours sur une liste de rapelle pour Canjet. Et si jamais l'emplois se relibère à mtl je n'hésiterais pas a retourner travailler pour eux.
