IT Operations (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 June 2017
The Airport Authority was a decent place to work if you want to collect a paycheque, be around friendly people, and just get your daily work completed. If you seek to make change, propose ideas and expect results, this environment is not conducive of promoting such ambition. They move far too slow a pace to ensure change happens when it is required and critical. They are behind the times when it comes to using technology to create efficiencies, and spend money in poor cyclical planning. Often, they repeat work and take the "if it's not broken don't fix it approach". Thus outdating themselves before they know it.
They have potential to do so much more, yet, older management tend to be very risk adverse causing frustration to mid level and front line staff.
Departments seem to be very segregated, and have issues working in cohesion when it matters most.
Calgary Airport Authority is one of the Alberta's top 70 employers. I had a pleasure to work with very talented people, I worked with Garth Atkinson and Mike Maxwell to deliver and test various baggage related projects for the opening of new international terminal at Calgary Airport.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary – 18 August 2016
Opportunities for professional development and training. Exciting new developments with the airport expansion. Management was great. Coworkers were friendly and outgoing; lots of community events with volunteer organizations. The hardest part about work there is that there are a lot of good jobs, but not a lot of movement.

I loved working at the Airport Authority. The staff is very friendly and the managers provided lots of support and time to dicusss projects. There are also courses and activities that staff that take part in such as the big bike challenge, which was lots of fun and allows for a work/life balance. Best work experience ever!
Information Operating Technologies System (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 January 2015
I got a Coop summer job at The Airport Authority in the Information Technology department. All my coworkers are very friendly and the HR department always had activities events such as riding a big bike, airside tour, volunteerings, Stampede BBQ, etc,. The hardest part of job was the first starting my position, I had to learn by myself about SQL, Crystal Report, and Business Object. However, after I worked there two weeks, I was familiar and enjoyed doing reports and projects.
