Terrible
Final Assembler (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 April 2019
They don't care about you. They don't care about anyone there. They'll work you to death and then throw you out the door when you're done. Don't do it you'll regret it.

Janitor
Cleaner/Janitor (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS26 March 2019
This place is by far the worse place to work. The air conditioning hasnt worked in years so with all the ovens and dishwashers the temps are up in high end of 40s. Your not allowed to have water only on breaks. It is unsanitary and they treat their workers badly. At 3am in the winter the temps are in mid 30s . The garbage room is so dirty its impossible to strip the layers and layers of dirt off the wall. Management is very hard to please or work for. The worse job ever. Ypu have a union but it's a joke. They get do many complaints about the Hslifax location, they ignore it all. Stay away
They say free meals bit it comes off your paycheck.
You go to work try to hold up to the heat do your work and leave.
They supply the air crafts with food , beverage, condiments. The meals are cooked fresh daily.
Pros
You get to quit.
Cons

fun experience, got to learn new skills
Customs Clerk/Galley Builder (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC5 March 2019
A typical day consisted of making trolleys with utensils for aircrafts. A day in the clerk office was mail entering inventory into an excel document. It was definitely a challenging job.

Good place that offers free lunch and snack!
Sanitation Worker (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC6 December 2018
Work could be hard at times. Food trolleys coming off the plane could be heavy, and the environment was very fast paced, but free lunch and snacks compensate for that heavily after a great meal you feel rejuvenated.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Poor Hours

Regular work (thanks to management) but boring and badly paid
Commissary Handler (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON20 November 2018
Work can be hard when it's a busy day and there have been weather problems. Planes re-routed mean extra work. Can get boring as it's always the same things you're doing. People are nice and you'll need a sense of humour. Management worked hard to give us all a fair share of the hours. Winter is slow but summer is frantic. Subsidised food. Helps if you can speak a south eastern Asian language as many of the staff are from here.
Pros
Subsidised food, mostly regular work, enjoyable if you have a sense of humour
Cons
Badly paid, no guarantee of work, can be boring, can be very hard work requiring overtime into the night

Decent money but problematic managment
Transportation Planner (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 October 2018
If you're looking to work in the transportation department its decent money but there is a lack of training and once you know what you're doing you'll be asked to work lots of overtime.

Dishwasher/ food prep
Dishwasher/Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS30 July 2018
Mist of the staff are great. As for the job, it's hard,dirty everything is falling apart. A/C hasnt worked for a very long time so we work in a 32-34 degree heat, that's at am in the morning. Imagine the afternoons the head is grueling. They say food is free but its taken off your pay cheque. Most of management are lazy and dont do anything. I can't imagine eating a salad coming from such a heat place. No shorts allowed, extremely hard work for minimum wage
Heat stroke and heat exhaustion is a given at YHZ.
Pros
I get a small paycheck. Workers are ok
Cons
Hard work, to hot to work in.

A chaotic and hectic workplace
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC28 March 2018
Working at other places and seeing the difference is like night and day. Highly disorganized and messy shop all of which is a result of prioritizing quantity over efficiency, quality , and safety.


Draconian management, runs the facility in the cheapest and most short sighted way possible with only short term solutions in mind. They cant even be bothered to clear the parking lots during a snow storm for employees. There seems to be at times a lack of accountability, but plenty of finger pointing, guilt by association, and passing the buck. I have seen others leave due a toxic work environment.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
lunch sometimes isn't ideal
