Your mileage may vary

You will find extremely polarizing opinions about working as a station attendant at AC, because one person's experience can be wildly different from someone else, depending primarily on your personality, and perhaps a little bit of luck.Some days, it feels like a great job and you are thankful to be there. Other days, you question why you are wasting your time with this job and you feel like quitting on the spot. If you are a very social, likeable person, chances are you will love working there. Special treatment is common place. You will get easier tasks, more breaks, spend lots of time socializing instead of working, and never be hassled by management. If you are introverted, and prefer to just go to work and do your job. You will most likely be exploited and abused until you have about 10 to 15 years of seniority. You will be given the most difficult, almost impossible to complete tasks, and you will be punished for not completing them according to the unrealistic expectations. If you are unfortunate enough to be one of these people, this job is incredibly hard on the body. You will destroy your shoulders, your knees, your back, and your mental health. That being said, there are many upsides:- Almost limitless flexibility with your schedule.- Health & dental benefits- Access to standby passes for you and your friends / family.- Job gets much easier with seniority.- Very dynamic place to work, every day is different.- Can be lots of downtime.- Amazing people. You will make lifelong friends working here. - Lots of opportunities for -

Pay is low, motivation is low and support is low. Wondering if this job is even worth it? I was transferred to Vancouver, the most expensive city in the world and am currently couch surfing. That is not a way to live life.

Great benefit but toxic management

Air Canada offered a positive work experience overall, but there is a prevalent culture of gossip within the in-flight management team at the Vancouver base. It is crucial for the General Manager to closely monitor the managers directly reporting to them, as there is a concern that they may be forming a clique and making hiring and firing decisions based on personal preferences rather than the qualifications of the staff members involved.

Great place if you are young and want to travel, Earn Aircraft endorsements, and build up experience

As a new hire Aircraft Maintenance Engineer, you would not have the chance to work day-shift for your next 15 or 20 years until you gain seniority. Shifts are 12hrs and in 5/5/4 pattern, so you have good time off to take advantage of flight benefit and to travel. Flight benefit is only good for single person and in low season. Good place to earn multiple aircraft endorsements. Pay is not satisfactory and everybody hoping for next union contract in 2026. Nice colleagues to work with, but poor management. Manpower planning is terrible. Overall, have a positive experience at the workplace. Would recommend to others

Lots of downtime

The pay isn’t the best, but for the amount of downtime, it’s not too bad. Beware the training process, on average in a class of 30, only 10 will make it through training.

Not a great employer

Poor management with tons of favouritism of certain cultural groups. Inappropriate relationships between employees and management. A unappreciated job with bad pay. Progression within the company is based on favouritism. Not much teamwork between employees, except between the cliches. Awfully uncomfortable uniforms.

Toxic Workplace

Poor management, doesn't care about the customers. Training is accelerated, you learn a lot more on the floor than in class. Managers doesn't seems to see you grow in the company they always assuming and judging your behave and work management.

Challenging but productive

I felt like amazing to be in the work culture of Air Canada. However, initially it seems difficult to manage everything. Eventually, you get to realize the value of working here

Nice co-workers but always understaffed

It was a great time working in Air Canada, most of the co-workers are nice but some of the senior are really mean to new people. Also, the salary is low but the company expects you to learn everything in 26 days training. It’s totally different when you start working in the Airport. And I always stressed about termination if I make any mistakes.


Co-workers are kind and friendly, flexible schedules


Strict rules, Understaffed, Stressed
