Cabin Crew in Calgary, AB
Growing company, still stuck in the 80s.Don’t get me wrong, no company is perfect. For someone who has never worked in aviation this company is for you. For many who have been in the industry, beware, as this company is very behind and not up to industry standards. It will make your mouth drop how behind they are. This company is stuck in their old ways and is not open to change, even though they want it. Management is uneducated in their positions, and you will feel micromanaged and not praised, or recognized for your experience. Potential to grow with this company as they have just merged, but you’ll still be frustrated in your position.
Stores Agent in Edmonton, AB
Good before the merger, now TERRIBLEUsed to be a company with pride before Bradley Air Services took over, now an inefficient, sad joke of an airline. Poor management from top down, understaffed due to everyone quitting, stressful, toxic culture, just a mess. Every day in the stores department was different and challenging, and often fun before the merger. The inefficiency and stress have killed all the enjoyment of working there. Most of the good employees have gone and nearly everyone left is looking for somewhere else to go unless they are very close to retirement age. The pay and benefits were decent, however the benefits keep getting cut back every year. The flight benefits were nice to have but not worth staying there for.
Aircraft Maintenance Engineer in Iqaluit, NU
Working for Canadian North was a soul destroying experience. Why would a highly trained professional ever want to work for incompetent amateurs?During my time at Canadian North I did not meet anyone in management who seemed to be the least bit interested in, or capable of, supporting front-line employees. Communication, planning and adoption of appropriate industry standards are entirely foreign concepts to this company.
Enjoyable place to workEnjoy my time at Canadian North, every day is different and challenging. Workplace culture has improved since the merger. Pros - Good salary and benefits, management care about you.Cons - COVID has caused some long hours on ocassion.

They hire everybody. You do not need to be smart or have much school.Nobody else wants to work nights in the arctic. Anyone who applies can easily get a job here. You do not need much school or know about aircrafts. Easy place to work as the manager is gone fishing.
