Sales Super Agent (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 April 2018
Loved working from home and doing team activities. Working in the call centre, you have to stay at your desk as you are monitored to make sure you are on calls EVERY SECOND. Benefits were good but did not outweigh the salary.
Air-Supply Agent (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 April 2018
I worked for WestJet for 3 years. I loved my job. The people there are simply the best. Even when the day is dull the people will always cheer you up. The Culture is fantastic. They say they hire people based on their personalities and whether they are "WestJetty" and it truly shows. I have never had the pleasure of working with more people of a similar mindset to my own before working here. The friendliest people on earth. The management was always helpful and knowledgeable. Generally, superiors have done the same job before and know what you do day to day and what you go through. They are willing and friendly. It is a big corporation and sometimes that shows in decisions and policies, but for the most part, as far as working for a corporation, it is great.
Fast paced environments can be stressful and WestJet is no exception. People want and need to get places on time and the job can be stressful, especially when times get messy for customers.
Flight benefits, health and dental, people rock
Customers can suck, large compnay, fast paced and hard work
Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 April 2018
WestJet is a great company to work for and holds a fantastic culture and people. The benefits are excellent and help compensate for the lack in hourly pay. You will be working as a team to help the advancement and profitability of the company while ensure the highest level of guest service is achieved. Some managers are outstanding at their jobs and others coast along and are not helpful.
Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON – 2 April 2018
Westjet was a fantastic place to have done my job shadowing. I learned alot for the little amount of time i was there. The people there were very friendly and open to giving advice about my future in aviation.
TAC (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 March 2018
Be prepared to swallow lots of Westjet kool aid and have a second job as 25 hours a week at 14.68 is the majority of shifts and Westjet expects you to make them priority! Some of the Crew Chiefs there have a second job. Politics matter more than work performance. Steer clear.
Some great co workers and working in the industry.
Favourtism and political correctness plus low hours and pay.
