Customer Service Attendant (Current Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC25 August 2012
Great opportunity with good pay seasonal opportunities. Takes a long time to advance in the company. The days are long and very busy during peak seasons. Learn a lot about the safety systems on the boats and safety precautions. Most of the co workers are great people to work with and easy to talk to
Pros
free ferry pass, great experience, good pay
Cons
long hours

Not supportive of new hires

You sign your life away and when things go south you have no support from the union or management. I didn’t find that they respected the customers as employees would speak horribly of those that came through and didn’t “behave”. Really think about it before applying
Pros
Pay is okay
Cons
Work many days in a row up to 14 days

You will sign your life away
Ticket Agent (Current Employee) –  West Vancouver, BC12 February 2018
Once you become a casual, your social life will go out the window. There are a lot of pros and cons but the only pros I can think of are the benefits and good pay. Have worked there for a few years and have seen hundreds of employees come and go. My advice to the company is get rid of on-call and give the employees a schedule.
Pros
decent pay, benefits
Cons
can work you two weeks straight, schedule is never consistent, company doesn't care if you are exhausted from working so much, poor management, lots of micro managing
