Good stepping stone to jump to another company

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Schedule is really good, alternate between 5 days on, 5 days off and 4 days on, 4 days off you’ll have two weekends off a month with this schedule. Plus vacation on top of that works out really well. Very poor management though, always blaming the workforce for their errors and never putting any money into improvements in the hangar.

Pros

Vacation

Cons

Poor management

Great job, horrible pay

Great job, great work conditions, except pay is way too low, B-scale in place and 50% of the very costly insurance has to be paid by the employee which greatly reduces the take-home pay.

Good job minus the pay

New flight attendants barely make minimum wage and new pilots can afford their rent or a car, not both. New first officer is roughly $2200 a month net income. After a few years when you become captain you'll get $3900. Flight attendant well below $2000.If the pay improved this would be a great job, however that seems very unlikely.Benefits are good but horrendously expensive (think financing a new jaguar). Flight passes are great but good luck having enough money for a vacation.Good experience, good aircraft maintenance. Living in yvr and yyz bases will leave you very poor.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Low pay, long hours

Fun workplace

Good place to start your aviation career. After the chaos of the summer, not much goodwill towards the company. Management are fair and have found them to be very supportive.

Cons

Seniority based bidding system

Worst paid airline in North America

For pilots this is the worst paid airline in North America. The equivalent position in the United States was making over 3 times , with far lower taxes. Deductions reached over %50, and you had to live in the most expensive cities in Canada if not the world. Where the take home pay if $2200 per month just covered a one bedroom apartment. Management is extremely greedy, and prefer to pay themselves before rewarding employees. Working here was extremely stressful and caused me to go to a therapist just to deal with the stress of horrible pay, and insane working hours. Thank you jazz for shortening my life.

Pros

Travel benefits

Cons

Pay, long hours, demanding training, poor mannered managers

Great company

The company is well mamaged, but you will only enjoy working there if you like the aviation industry. Working with passengers is really stressful; I can say that the flight benefits compensate a little .

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.
