AIM Assembly Specialist (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – December 23, 2015
It's a typical 9-5, I learned a lot about the science of flying and the back ground into flights. Management sucks, they don't have a clue on what their employees are doing day to day. Co-workers are great.
I had an interesting job in a highly technical environment for years.
Flight Service Specialist (Former Employee) – various – November 8, 2015
The job has changed a lot over the years, primarily due to technological updates. Some of the tasks performed regularly throughout my career with NavCanada, were: - pre-flight weather briefings - filing flight plans for pilots - both private vfr pilots and commercial ifr pilots - issuing NOTAMS re: safety issues affecting flight or special circumstances - such as balloon flights, military flight operations, search and rescue operations, missing aircraft, etc. - communicating with pilots in vicinity of the airports when I worked as airport advisory and with pilots in Arctic Canada when I worked in the Flight Information Center via landline telephone, sat phones and later cellphones; and via VHF, UHF and HF radios where practicable - updating manuals periodically - recording daily operational statistics
The first thirteen years I worked in single stand stations, meaning I was often alone on shift. At those locations, I did hourly weather observations and recorded and sent them on the computer. Our computers were on a company intranet and most of the programs we used were created 'in-house' for our specific purposes.
So even though I worked as Flight Service Specialist for 28 years, I kept up with changes with in-house training given by the technicians who had developed the 'new' program, and the job was constantly changing - new rules and procedures, new policies developed as circumstances required, etc.
I am looking forward to working with a dynamic, growing business here in North Bay.

Great place for highly sociable extroverts to get ahead. Even if you can't do the job, as long as if you are friendly with the right people, you will be on the fast track to management. If you should be an introvert, or in some way not able to be very sociable, you will be out the door as fast as they can get rid of you.
3 weeks vacation, 3 weeks paid sick leave, 1 week paid appointment time, and 11 days of holiday time per year.
Air Traffic Controller Trainee (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – September 23, 2014
ATC training is a fast paced, high stress course. Every day is spent trying to fix the mistakes you made in practice the day before while trying to figure out what the next step is. It is however very rewarding when you manage to apply what you are thought to the job.
The environment is usually a mix of extremely professional and extremely laissez-faire which can change from one second to the next.
extremely good pay and benefits
extremely hard training, extremely high stress and complexity
Awesome place for students to get experience in the IT field.
Support Desk Specialist (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – June 10, 2014
Management is relaxed and focused on understanding the needs of the students with regard to their career. Pace varies, can be very busy at times, fostering a need to prioitize tasks in order of importance, or slow, which in turn fosters the need to complete backlogged work.
