Work environment was good 10-15 years ago, now is total different . Midle managers have no people skills at all.Senior managers don't meet with emploees to listen to their concerns, good days are long gone!

Fun Place to Work

It was a very fun place to work. Almost all the staff were kind and helpful. Learned lots of new skills and was able to take workshops. They also just opened a new staff gym. Job pressure level depends on job type.


10% airport shop discount, good bonuses, good health programs, good medical insurance, good pay


Tight and quiet workspace, not much room for mess up

Reccomanded to everyone

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, YVR had to reduce its workforce to address the decrease in its operational requirements. My position was not among the reduced ones, but a more senior union member decided do exercise displacement rights and removed me from my work at YVR. Otherwise i will still be enjoying working at YVR.

My dream job

Maintenance crew working 12hr shifts four on four off. Lots of troubleshooting calls with a balance of work orders and preventative maintenance. Lots of different things to work on and therefore never boring. There’s really nothing bad to say other than COVID-19 ruined everything.

Employees fully cooperate to achieve the daily objectives.

A fast-paced job; many who come to pick up their arriving relatives are not very receptive to parking rules and regulations at the airport arrival area.


Straight-forward work - that is ensure continuous traffic flow in the arrival area.


Different practices by other co-employees inconsistent policy.

Poor management and leadership. The job is great and some of the coworkers are good to work with. The airfield is a fun place to work outdoors and meet other people.

It was great working at YVR, there was a lot of work to be done, and you always had the respect and help of others to achieve a team goal. It is a caring and thoughtful place to work.

• Checked and reserved air ticket after checking passenger’s passports, tickets and visas at the Vancouver Airport counter • Explained to the passenge

• Explained to the passengers the location of the restaurant inside the airport, the location of the international or domestic flights that the passengers didn't know very well. • Considering the passenger's boarding time, the check-in was quickly processed

A good work place.

I had several time in inspection at this airport. It is a good airport! The workplace is friendly and respectable! The equipment and infrastructure is the world first flight one! There are so many different types of the restaurants to be chosen. The job security is good! The transportation to the city is very convenient.
