Good teamwork and work environment. Job was challenging but rewarding. Pay is the major downside, but for the industry not the company. The amount of responsibility a technician has is crucial to the safety of air crew/ passengers and aircraft. Always working with deadline so the delays to passengers are minimal. mostly working outdoors in all weather conditions making sure aircrafts are safe to fly but not payed enough for it all.
If this job is your passion, then yes, this company is one of the better ones to work for.
Points positifs
good work/life balance
Points négatifs
low salary

Really easy to make friends at work. Flight and travel benefits are the best part, decent health benefits but the pay could be higher. Lots of growth and learning opportunities. The work culture is awesome. The people within the company make going to work easy and enjoyable.
Points positifs
flexible hours, internal hiring, travel benefits
Points négatifs
low pay, lots of walking and standing around

Everyone speaks culture, culture, culture. People who have been at the company for years basically make their way through the ranks even if not qualified. It's a "good old boys" club culture. All the buddies remain when things get tough and all the good get thrown out even if it means that the skills go with them. Works out well for Air Canada I guess as most who have experienced the bumping are gladly picked up by Air Canada.
Points positifs
free to put in your ideas
Points négatifs
free to put in your ideas... no one listens

worked at WestJet for almost two years and enjoyed.
Pros:

Lots of down time between flights, great people, friendly managers team. Salary is minimum but flights benefits were awesome. Plus you'll get extra 10 buddy passes as well every year which is top of your own family flight benefits. Other medical benefits are great as well.

12 hour shifts, including overnights. They use a bidding system which is the most convoluted thing you can imagine and is capable of finding new ways to make your schedule insufferable every single bid period. Crew members treat you like garbage, management treats you like garbage. 10 out of 10 not worth it

Hard work, little pay. The flight benefits and flexible schedule are the only reasons to work for Westjet. If you aren't planning on using the cheap flights you can make more money doing almost anything else.
Points positifs
cheap flights, health benefits
Points négatifs
Backbreaking labour, minimum wage

WestJet is such a great company to work for. The culture is amazing. The morning staff aren't the friendliest, but the night crew are incredible. I really enjoyed working for the company, but they pay minimum wage.

I was only at WJ a few months before Covid-19 caused major changes to the airline. However, the thorough training provided me with the knowledge and confidence that I needed to preform my job well. If there was a situation where I needed assistance, my coworkers/management team were always there for guidance and support. The atmosphere was relaxed, friendly and tremendously supportive. I would highly recommend WJ to anyone.

Best job I've ever had in terms of atmosphere, and environment. Working around planes is awesome and makes every day exciting. Days go fast.
Pay sucks starting out especially considering the amount of flaming hoops you have to jump through to secure your job. A driving test that puts your class 5 to shame. Takes about 90 mins. 6+ exams, if you fail any of them twice your let go. Benefits are amazing but you don't make enough to use your flight benefits mostly everyone i knew had a second job.
Points positifs
Fairly relaxed days. Pick your own shifts.
Points négatifs
Doesnt pay enough for how hard you work or how much you have to do to get a job.

My experience got me the interview. My personality got me the job. But that’s just the start. The 2 months of training is what really does it. It’s stressful, intense and not everyone makes it through. Some leave because of scheduling, some don’t pass the exams, some just find it too hard. I almost quit before I finished but my teacher and class mates supported and encourage me to continue. I’m glad I didn’t give up.
This company puts their money where their mouth is. There is no reason to be afraid as there is plenty of support. They will give you extra training if you feel you need it. If you want to stay in touch with you coworkers you can. They pay is a little lower at the start but the benefits make up for it.

I feel honoured to be counted among the nicest people in the country because that’s who they hire.
Points positifs
Support, friends, flights, bonuses, possible flexibility with schedules, health benefits, paid vacation, a CEO who’s involved
Points négatifs
The odd angry guest

Great place to work from day one!
Unfortunately due to the recent turn in events with COVID-19 and mass lay offs, it is difficult to stay employed.

If it weren’t for this, I would still be working there.


Love the people, the culture, the management and benefits!

I wouldn’t recommend working here to my worst enemy. Promotions are given to who management is friends with over merit, they have alliances that stick together and fire people who go against them.
I witnessed many women speak out about harassment and have it fall on deaf ears and have their careers limited after that.

Toxic, bullying, harassing environment. Run!

Points négatifs
Harassment, bullying, toxic

Work level was reasonable
Compensation was fair

Having flight privileges was excellent (standby)

Unfortunately Covid-19 just destroyed the airline industry - would still be working there otherwise

Love working with Westjet. Great culture and work environment. Great benefits and perks. Great guests and feels like family. Pay is low but because of the culture it makes up for that.
