Aviation Technician in Comox, BC

Great place to work
Get paid to get your trade, and paid well thereafter. Travel the world, make a difference where you may otherwise not. Learn discipline and how to operate as a team.
Aviation Technician in Borden, ON

Unprofessional company
Was treated very unfairly by higher chain of command. Forced out and forced to retire early with no just cause. Pay should be better for what you do. Major backstabbing to get promoted. If you try your best they fail you at your job. You play their game but they dont play fair back, like to twist their own rules. Never will be apart of this government agency ever again. Do not bother joining unless you want a ruined life.

Very Demanding work environment,
Canadian Military provides a platform for members to develop skills, receive in-depth training and opportunities not available within the civil community. Working within the military environment is high stress, physically and personally demanding with long hours and time away from family.The process for advancement is guarded by an old boys network where it is who you know, if you fit within their profile, whether you are liked or disliked.

Ok place to work
I wanted to switch trades after I didn't want my former job and it became a nightmare. They said the trade was lock. Some training course are fun and rewarding but can be a pain if you get a stick trainer
Private Recruit in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC
on 7 June 2021
I got yelled at a lot? Not a big fan. The money and pension is nice but the strain on your mental health and body isn’t. I left because in reg force they talk to you and treat you like you’re the scum of the earth. Apparently once you’re out of training they’re nice to you.
