Awesome company, amazing benefits

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Everything is good at this company but pay is on the low side. Culture, people and benefits. Benefits are expensive and amazing and pay scale has quickly become outdated but still great job. Awesome training and management.

Good start of career, bad employee and management relationship

Schedule and benefits are great..thats about it. Long hours and lots of work to take home.Good training and coworkers though, management has a bad way of getting work done.

Good place to get some experience....not good for long run....

New employees get kicked off just before they complete their probation period without valid reason.Crew leads seems to be friendly but i found them back stabbers. Send complaints to top management rather than rectify new employees. Politics always is the topic in break time.Racisim is their for non english speaking backround employees.

Pros

flight benefits health

Cons

always short staff, burden on rest of team work, slow training to get certified

Amazing benefits and company culture

I absolutely love working at Jazz the people are amazing and benefits are great. Company has great values and really follows them. For a company with 4000+ employees you don't feel like just a number at each base you feel like a family. Only reason why i gave a 4/5 is the pay is low especially when your starting but benefits including health, pension, travel, savings are amazing.

Pros

company culture, respectful, life work balance

Cons

low pay early AM and late PM shifts especially when you are new

Poor management culture

I love being an AME and I like my mechanic co-workers at Jazz but we just aren’t valued as employees, most crew chiefs are apathetic towards developing mechanics skills and you end up arbitrarily doing the same monotonous tasks over and because they can’t be bothered. Management treats the employees as the enemy and the union is completely apathetic and unhelpful and rolls over for most of what the company wants and never consults the employees.

Compared to Mainline and Rouge, Jazz actually care about its employees.

Jazz is definitely a good company to work for. The collective agreement is x10000 better than the one at Mainline/ Rouge. They also have flight benefits, but Air Canada Mainline is keeping Jazz apart and putting their employees before Jazz crew. They always create a harmful work environment keeping the companies separated even though Jazz’s fleet is mainly all for Air Canada. Which creates tension between the employees from both companies and inequalities in the work place. Some people at Jazz have more than 35 years of seniority. Daily per diems, US per diems, guaranteed 4:30 credits, 75h min monthly and lots of opportunities. Professional crews and we are a big family! Join us.

Pros

Easy flights, passengers are easy going, nice crew, company actually cares about you, feels like you are your own boss

Cons

Unfair treatment from Mainline and lots of misinformation about the company.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (heavy maintenance)

Good spot to gain experience and get your AME licence. However, the heavy maintenance setting isn’t for everyone. Never challenged, same thing over and over. Technician moral is at an all time low due to management.

Pros

Decent pay.

Cons

Long hours, shift work (nights/days).

Long hours and toxic work environment

Relatively easy job and great benefits, however lots of petty gossiping in the workplace. Can be away from home for a very long time which makes it difficult to have a fulfilling life outside of work

Ok Company

The people and management are great , just the fleet and destinations are not great. A lot of domestic when you’re first starting out so no per diem. If you have never worked for an airline before it’s a great starting airline , but long term definitely not worth it. Gets boring real quick

Pros

Great staff Good management Good benefits ( health not so much flights) Pretty decent per diem

Cons

Fleet is pretty bad Destinations

Typical aviation maintenance

Jazz offers competitive pay and excellent benefits, however advancement will be slow due to the opportunities being based on seniority with the union.

Pros

12 hr shift, time off

Cons

Slow advancement, Night shift

Not The Best

Rude customers, long hours, unset schedules for entry-level, and workplace politics, many people who work there, have been there for years with no intention of leaving, so good luck trying to get ahead since job openings go by seniority.

Pros

Discounted flight

Cons

Long hours, rude customers, low pay, work politics, sonority worker mentality.

Great work life balance and safety oriented culture.

Great medical and travel benefits. Safety oriented culture. Growing and fast paced. A great work life balance. Jazz offers a great pension plan and share buying program.

Pros

Travel passes and work life balance

Cons

Some positions are time sensitive and might be stressful for some.

Company is good and top management is excellent but middle management is very unprofessional and exploitative.

Not a good place to work if you want to work with dignity and ethics. Middle management plays dirty politics and encourage internal conflicts and character assassination.

The smaller the base the more petty drama

Having worked for mainline in the past it was an easy transition into Jazz and I was on cloud 9. That being said working at the smaller bases is worse then the major hubs! The pettiness, backstabbing , manipulative games and drama that happens is insane! Generally all done by the one agent that no one likes yet they’re the ones sucking up to management since they’re BFFs and all. The new employee pass program nearly ensures you’re not getting on a flight unless it’s a Jazz one. The atmosphere in the company in general is toxic and we were made to feel 3rd class within the AC umbrella.

Pros

Easy work load, lots of downtime, no corporate management hovering over us or watching our flights like hawks

Cons

Drama, drama, drama

Not very productive workplace

YUL base workplace culture is very toxic. Its a Francohophone vs Anglophone game going on. Avoid working there if you do not speak french. Do not expect to have many log book tasks.

Pros

Flight benefits, dental, health

Cons

Long hours, Odd shifts, Toxic workplace

Very rewarding career at a well established airline

As the largest regional airline in Canada, there are many opportunities for growth at Jazz. Whether you want to progress from First Officer to Captain, dabble in union work or management, or maybe go into the training department. Initial and recurrent training are both very thorough, and the training pilots are always focused on improving your knowledge and skills in any way they can. The work environment is fast-paced and sometimes stressful, yet always professional and friendly. Although the initial pay as a First Officer is not the best (compared to larger airlines or US regionals) the collective agreement is very good in terms of health/dental benefits, vacation, and overtime opportunities. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jazz as a great place to work.

Pros

Health/dental benefits, travel benefits, opportunities for growth

Cons

Irregular schedule, initial pay as a First Officer, initial position is determined by seniority so you may not get the aircraft/base you desire

Dream Job

This job allowed me to travel all across Canada to places I wouldn't have been otherwise. The benefits are simply amazing, expensive but all encompassing. Managers are quite literally the most helpful and kind humans, they want everyone to succeed and feel comfortable. There hasn't been a shift I haven't left with a new friend. Every work day I looked forward to.
