Air Canada terminated my employment based on a subjective report sent by a colleague who said I was disorganized. After 5 years of loyal services and positive commendations except that ''one'' , you would think that you have worked long enough for them to know that you are a reliable individual. They overlook any good action but keep focusing on any mistakes you may do and seem to enjoy conducting performance meetings and imposing discipline as a result.

Get rid of the OBSM program, fire the Cabin Crew Managers and stop the divide/conquer mentality that causes the toxic work environment

Ambiance at Air Canada is very toxic. I worked as a Flight Attendant, a Customer Sales and Service Agent and as a Translator and experienced three different departments. The Inflight Service department is the worst. Cabin Crew Managers have no common sense and no empathy whatsoever, especially MD. They are unqualified, lack people skills and were trained to divide and conquer and create an ambiance of fear. Some flight attendants and Service Directors feel the urge to get some kind of recognition/promotion from their managers and will report their colleagues " just because" it can be because they just don't like you. If you feel like going to work everyday with the constant fear to be fired, this is the place for you; its gonna drain you mentally, trust me. There was lots of pressure also when I was working as a ground agent, but it was bearable. CSMs were sometimes inhumans but not all of them.

You have to have a Canadian passport as it's easier for the airline. They don't have to manage many different permissions for each country. If one country black list U.S. passports or changes the requirements but not canadian now they have to manage who can fly there or what documents they need to get for that person. It's not worth it for them.

Depends what position you are applying for, but being an airline it operates 24/7

For ramp agents, it's ok not to speak French, but you cant work as a customer rep without French.
