Great place to work at
Flight ATT (Current Employee) –  YYC17 November 2018
I have been flying for 29 years it is a wonderful friendly company to work for.
The union is very supportive.
The company is very thoughtful and are easy to work with.

Not always away from home there are times when you work single days and can be home with family.

Great job for someone who loves to travel

Give it a try you will have fun!

Being a Flight Attendant was a good job
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC24 August 2018
I loved working as a flight attendant, but unfortunately between working on-call 4-5 days a week, between 12:01am and 11:59pm and the 5000km separating me and my family, it just didn't seem worth while anymore. I would love to have a job where I feel fulfilled, but can also spend time with my friends and family, and unfortunately that was not possible whilst being a flight attendant.
Pros
Travelling
Cons
Long hours, hard on body, far from home

Too Much for Too Little
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC22 July 2018
Poor management who offer little support, weak union, no acknowledgement for hard work, low pay for representing an airline and all the complexities that come with the job (cancelled or delayed flights, oversells.. it’s not an easy job).
Extended health benefits are shared cost after six month probationary period (shared 50/50).
Flights are standby (space available) for employees and are not free. Seats are given in seniority order.
Pros
Last minute standby travel at low cost
Cons
Toxic work culture.

Une belle carrière.
Pilote (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC6 June 2018
Stable et loin du grincage politique bruyant de la compétition.
Un environnement de travail où il y a un sentiment de travailler en équipe, les opportunités d'avancement sont excellentes pour la décennie à venir . Les salaires sont intéressant et surtout la mission de l'entreprise est bien axée sur l'accroissement et la diversité.

Not Good.
Current Employee (Current Employee) –  Maintenance1 May 2018
Very unprofessional, even in office environment. Use to be a great place to work but not any longer. The atmosphere has become very volitile due to stressful working conditions, being short staffed and not allowed to call in overtime. Complaints and issues are unheard by upper management.
Wages are on the lower end for maintenance compared to the industry standard.
Medical and dental benefits are great. Flying passes are hard to use since an Air Canada employee whos been working with the company 2 months can get a seat before me, I've been with the company 20 years.
New people being hired are quickly leaving for other companies and people who been with the company for years are actively seeking other employment. Zero room for advancement to upper management.
Pros
Medical and Dental Benefits
Cons
Low wages, very volitile, unprofessional and stressful.

Truly the worst place to work ever
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 February 2018
Worked for this company for 18 months and it was the worst of my life. The pay is average and the overtime is non existent. It is unionized and this means most of the hierarchy have embedded themselves in potions and will use anyone and anything to stay in power. Senior employers can take your position once a year meaning the first few years you will mostly be doing poor work and having to build up your seniority to get what you want. Seriously worth a wide berth. There are plenty of better companies in calgary like Eagle, Westjet, Avmax and Viking. PS your flights are hard to get again because of seniority and air canada getting preference.

Heavy workload
AME (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC15 January 2018
The workload is the past days is too high for the number or employees and especially for the overall experience on the floor. The management is minimal, which helps me as I have full authority on my work.

Flexibility
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC11 October 2017
The flexiablity and the constant movement is quite amazing. There's always something to do, which makes the job never boring.
Workplace culture is quite great, because we rarely run into the same person; when you do run into a friendly face it's great.

Challenging and rewarding
Customer Service Agent, part time (Current Employee) –  Saint John, NB2 October 2017
Irregular operations at the airport could be very challenging, but once you see the smiles and gratitude of the customers you've helped, it makes it worth it.

Pay is sub par
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB9 September 2017
The work and skillset involved is not worth sixteen dollars an hour. Management is there only when you do sthg wrong, lack of support, co-workers are backstabbers, computer system is 40 years outdated.
Pros
Discounted flights
Cons
Flights are standby, which means you are last on the list to fly.

Good company
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB5 September 2017
Good company,

A very organized company, with very good opportunities to grow in different directions, but unfortunately, I must invest a good part of my salary keeping a professional image and the salary is not really good.
Then yes, it is a wonderful job, but depends your financial situation.

Not worth the pay
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) –  Castlegar, BC26 June 2017
Management couldn't care less about new hires. They push you through training really fast. They don't explain a lot of fine print about shift bidding or benefits or any HR concerns. Incredibly low pay with high expectations of work load. Union doesn't support you. Uniforms are out of pocket 50%. Senior staff is stuck in old school ways.
Pros
Flight benefits
Cons
Expensive uniforms, so many taxes and union fees taken off check, lack of shifts

Good place to develop skills to be an effective AME
Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS21 June 2017
Jazz is an excellent place to develop the necessary skills required to be an effective AME. Learning how to use tools, read wiring diagrams, troubleshoot effectively and develop hand skills are just the tip of the iceberg of what's possible to be gained (skills wise).
Pros
Travel benefits
Cons
Longer than average work week

Sell-Out Company
Management (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 May 2017
If your position is in Management or any non-unionized job, watch out. The higher ups (Directors) are in the constant process of making the Jazz operation cheaper to appeal to Air Canada. This means firing any and everyone who is not protected.

Salaries are low as well.

Great people to work with
Inflight Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON29 March 2017
Typical day at work would be in the office answering emails, voicemails or calls. Meetings would take places, flight attendants would come in to get something or ask questions.
i would have to go to the gates to hand out pins, or to watch the operation and make sure flights were leaving on time
Pros
health and travel benefits
Cons
no job security
