Airline has taken a step backwards
Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 December 2018
Old Canada 3000 and Sky Service have taken over.
Very set in old ways of working and doing things ,has become friends only.
Owners don't pay any attention to the airline, guess they figure why should they when they already have your money from the hotels.

If you're serious about joining Sunwing use them as a training ground and move on as they will use you.
Pros
Getting on a flt for a reduced rate was nice
Cons
Sell your soul to the devil if you want to get ahead, no pension, limited benefits.

Exiciting Place to Work
Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 October 2018
Sunwing Airlines is great place to work if you're a recent graduate from any of the aviation colleges. It gives you the exporsure to the real world situations and problems. Usually it gets really busy from November - April. In the summer most of the airplanes go over to europe for summer deployment. Management can be a hassel sometimes. Recently, there has been a lot of changes in the management structure.
Pros
Flight Benefits, Benefits, Rrsp
Cons
Long 12hr shifts 4on/4off

Get your feet wet, then move on.
Flight Attendant Trainee. (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 August 2018
Great experience for 1st timers wanting to work in aviation. Long hours in the classroom with very few breaks. Instructors are very good with the few exceptions of the old guard who are out of touch and arrogant. Lack of actual onboard training is not practical for real life work. Take the Conpany for all they offer you, then move on. They hire every year any how.. Management does not care about you, only themselves. Very clique environment.
Pros
Work experience, home each night most of the time.
Cons
Poor pay, lousy schedules, rude senior employees

Constantly changing hours, low pay, disgusting office

Horrible company to work for
Groups (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 June 2018
Management is UNFAIR and play favourites, Owners are GREEDY and only look out for themselves. Yes there are "discounts" for flights but not confirmed until sometimes hours before you want to leave.
Would never recommend anyone to ever travel with them let alone work for this company.
Pros
Nice co-workers on the same level
Cons
