Able to turn a dream into reality
Manager, Emergency Response (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMay 12, 2015
Pros: Ability to develop and expand program
Cons: Many hours away from home
I started my job at WestJet as Trainer for their Special Assistance Team (SAT) training - teaching employees how to help passengers in the event of an airplane accident or incident. The program was quite new when I joined the company, and I was able to grow it from less than 50 trained to over 3,000. After approximately one year, I was promoted to Emergency Response Manager, which included not only the SAT training, but also the emergency preparedness for the airline. I set up trained personnel in each of the Canadian WestJet bases, and ensured they were well trained in ER procedures and kep their base personnel up to date and ready. I coordinated and conducted mock training exercises and wrote programs for recurrent training. The hardest part of the job was turning off my brain and sleeping at night. I learned how to be an effective leader and excellent training facilitator. My team became very important to one another, and I enjoyed their input and effort so much. I was happy to accept the President's Award for Excellence.

Pros: fun, flexible and very supportive environment
Cons: only one company like that in aviation canada
A great place to work where one grows professionally and would like to retire from. What makes it the best company is the manpower which is very satisfied and welcoming to the newcomers. I recommend this organization to anyone who wants to enjoy their work.

Technical Systems Analyst (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMarch 31, 2014
Pros: great team and good flight benefits
Cons: more overtime than you really want.
The team I work with includes some of the smartest guys in the city. When the bytes hit the packet, I know they will be there to help and provide sound, knowledgeable advice.

The downside is that we work extremely hard with very few "slow" days.

Don't plan to use travel perks? Don't work here.
GUEST SERVICE AMBASSADOR (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 7, 2014
Pros: travel discount can be massive when flying standby, $20 to vegas, for eg.
Cons: shift lengths vary from one extreme to another.
Every employee here will agree with the title statement.

You must pay your dues and work entry level at near-to minimum wage. Probation is 6 months. Cannot apply for any opportunities until you've been working for 6 months. Basic employee perks until you've hit 6 months experience as well.

While you can trade shifts, you will never get something consistent you can rely on to make a second work with without a lot of effort.
