Service director (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 August 2017
I joined AirCanada's inflight cabin crew in 2012. It has been an awesome experience; this job has given me the chance to travel to many new destinations and provided me the opportunity to work with a truly diverse group of people.
almost free traveling, good health benefits and retirement plan
Schedule and reserve life in the beginning could be tough, but flying and money gets better with time
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 August 2017
For most of my career, I spent 16 years at Air Canada Vacations. It was sincerely the most satisfying in my career. I learned a lot there, had several positions within the company, was fortunate enough to move around and develop professionally. The benefits far outweighed the income. Management was fair, working environment could be stressful at times depending on the season.
One of the last places you can still get a pension
Station Attendant (Former Employee) – Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON – 23 June 2017
It's a good place to work if you are young and are looking for a career because their are all kinds of things you can do so long as you can stay long enough to get enough seniority to be able to pick and choose the areas you like to work in plus long term the salary is very good for what you have to do.

I work for Air Canada as a flight attendant, and I LOVE it!!! There isn't anything else i could ever think of choosing a career. I have lots of days off would love to find a part time serving or bartending job.
Customer Service Manager - Airports (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 19 June 2017
This company only has flight benefits going for them, a large network of international airlines. The leadership group are poorly trained (if at all) and do not know how to interact or engage with employees in a professional or productive manner. Neanderthal management techniques and managing by intimidation are the only way they know. If you are looking for a union role, perhaps you may find an improvement since you would be protected by the union. If you are seeking a 'Management' role, have thick skin and perhaps you can improve the poor working conditions for the leadership team. Bullying is typical and an acceptable way of handling day to day operations.
productive and a fun place to work with a lot of responsibilities.
Lead Station Attendant (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 June 2017
air canada is one of the best places to work, i work as a flight operation lean, in other word lead station attendant. i am in charge of daily operations of inbound and outbound flights. In other word, when an aircraft arrives to the gate, i marshall it in and preform the offload operations. For the Outbound flights, we are required to follow weight and balance sheet also known as load sheet and load the aircraft according to the load sheet in a timely manner. This is a time sensitive operation, and on time performance is very important for this job. Its very rewarding knowing i am responsible for the safety of the passengers and I get the job done right.
lots of break time. once the flight is done, we get our break till the next flight.
Great job for young unattached person who wants to travel the world for cheap
Lead Station Attendant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 May 2017
Shift work, airports are always open so no stat days off, shifts based on seniority so junior people get the worst shifts, management only care about on time departures regardless of staffing levels, weather, unforeseen circumstances.
Great benefits package including discounted flights, ability to trade shifts to get time off, fellow employees become family
No chance for advancement, shift work so no work life balance, airports are open 24/7 365 so no stat days off, all shifts bid on based on seniority so no chance of getting good shifts for years
