Low Salary
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) –  Canada4 January 2020
Low Salary for aviation. Long hours with no cool layovers, all being in Canada.

The best part of the job is the people you fly with. Travel benefits are great but that doesn't matter when you're paid a very minimum salary.

This airline is good for people who have good paying full time jobs with the flexibility to work as a Flight Attendant additionally.

Terrible culture
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB29 September 2019
Once the launch occurred and 100% of the leadership turned over, this company turned into a volatile, dysfunctional every man out for themselves environment. Work life balance and the executive team dictate rather than coach and mentor. Those who stand a chance at a promotion must align themselves to the President and lose their core values and turn on one each other
Pros
Value to travelers
Cons

Startup Environment
Swoop HQ (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB27 September 2019
Great place to learn all aspects of the aviation industry, however being a startup, there is little in the way of training and everyone is "new" encouraging a bit of a free for all environment
Pros

OK Airline
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON25 September 2019
The employees are great. Hamilton is a great location if you live in the area. Poor salary and little room to advance. For the most part, expect to be working 10-13 hours a day.

Life at Swoop
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON4 September 2019
If you have never worked in the airline industry let me be the 1st to tell you the industry may seem huge but it is very small. Today’s ground handle could be your supervisor and a cabin groomer a Flight Attendant. Having said that do be kind to those you meet along the way because you never know who may be sitting in your next interview making the decision if your a good fit for the company!
I have had the opportunity to work for other airlines and I can say Swoop’s open door policy not to mention managements willingness to listen to ideas from frontline staff and immediate implementation is unmatched! The one complaint is that compensation is on lower side of the pay spectrum. I would have to agree but our flight benefits make it so worth it!
I enjoy working at Swoop and I truly think work life balance is on point. Overall I would encourage everyone that understands the service to apply and take a chance with us, you will not be disappointed!

Bad company
Counter Attendant (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON14 August 2019
The trainer for the new counter agents introduced us as “new fresh blood”
The training is rushed and badly prepared. They expect you to go home and continue reading and testing hundreds of online pages on your own time without pay.
Only the young and uneducated young people stay there.

A family like atmosphere
Flight Attendant (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON12 August 2019
I've been working with Swoop for over a year now and it is like working for a family. The job itself is super fun and constantly learning the ways, rules and regulations of aviation and company policies. When there is an issue management adresses it asap. The hardest part of the job are long hours vs what you actually get paid. If you have time on your hands to give up some hours and not get paid (such is the aviation industry) and want a variety day to day on the job and not working a 9-5, Then I'd say GO FOR IT... working out of the Hamilton airport is easy, quick and convenient.
GO SWOOP!

Poor organization

No life balance, long hours. No resources. People are great but the organization is poorly managed with no results. Wondering how the company will stay afloat.
