Assistant Chief Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Smithers, BC9 January 2019
Small friendly family like airline.
Employees were a mix of young pilots and older professionals who worked well together.
A typical day in Dispatch began at 0300 to prepare for the first departure from Alberta. And the evening shift ended with the last arrival of the day.
Pros
Friendly atmosphere
Cons
Remote location

A decent entry level unskilled manual labor job
Ramp (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC27 November 2016
The job is quite repetitive, but all in all the majority of ramp jobs are quite repetitive. This job is best suited for someone who is willing to work a lot. There is usually lots of work to go around and often delays making you stay later. 12 hour shifts are quite normal which can be nice if you only want to work a few days a week.

The management is a completely different story. There is overall not a lot of management especially in regards to the ramp. the pay is on average with other ramp jobs which is not all to great ($13/hour)

The culture was personally one of the worst attributes about this position and which ultimately led me to leave. Expect to hear pilot talk a lot! You will be working under the pilots for you entire time at CMA. They will look down on you and kind of boss you around. The majority of other ramp agents there when I was working were pilots. This can be good or bad depending on your opinion of pilots.

Overall, if you need a quick job with lots of hours work here, but it is not long term.
Pros
flight benefits
Cons
Little Management, Working outdoors, Repetitive, Poor work culture

Good first job
Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC15 August 2016
Can get stressful throughout the day due to some passengers but nothing to really complain about sometimes. Coworkers are the reason why I look forward to working. Learned many different things regarding, check in, boarding passengers and operations of an airline
Pros
flexibility on 15 min breaks
Cons
long work hours, not flexible hours due to seniority

Good place to work. Great for building time
Beech 1900 Captain (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 May 2014
Great place for building time as a pilot. Not really a place to hang your hat and stay for your career but, good for younger pilots looking to move on to airlines.

A controlled and organized place to work.
Revenue Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Smithers, BC23 April 2013
I worked in an accounting office. I needed to be highly motivated individual to complete my deadlines throughout the day/month. Multitasking was an asset. On a daily basis I downloaded and uploaded files and I audited these files to ensure that they were correct. I also audited all the airline tickets that were sold through the reservation department and online. Problem solving could be a challenge at times, but each department would provide as much information to help me as best as they could. The Accounting Office was organized and managed very well, so working there was enjoyable.
Pros
inexpensive airline tickets were provided for employees.
Cons
the salary.
