Maintenance Worker (Ancien employé) – Edmonton, AB – 12 février 2019
I see other reviews from various departments, now here is one from the maintenance department. It is a very laughable maintenance operation with mostly pilots running the maintenance department behind the scenes. The pitiful premium they pay ACA signing authority just doesn't make it worth it to HAVE signing authority. Speaking of signing authority, if you were to end up into working Heavy maintenance you would be expected to sign for the work of 5 or 6 apprentices which usually results in a Q&A nightmare. Seems like there's more managers than actual maintenance personnel. Line maintenance will get you nothing but straight night shifts. No night shift premium, unlike places like Air Canada, and other "industry peers" which is a term to company loves to throw around a lot. All in all, very doubtful someone would enjoy working at a place like that. I would discourage anyone from doing aircraft maintenance to begin with, but if you still feel compelled, I HIGHLY discourage anyone from doing it at Canadian North
Multiple softwares and platforms to learn, provides interesting opportunities. Not much room for growth. Employee advancement and education available. Very business oriented, a good place to learn private corporate structure. Co workers are incredible and kind people. Management is supportive and intelligent but can only provide opportunities within their means as this corporation is run by a larger parent company.
