I was a long term employee, almost 20 years. As the company has grown the culture has changed and not in a good way. You're just a number now.
No pension plan, no employee share purchase plan now that they are privately owned. Benefits are good currently. But the pay is less than industry standard. I found that out while interviewing with other airlines.

Like any big corporation it has politics and lots of them. Only people moving up are those that suck up to management, however the people you work with are incredible. The job itself is fast and not for everyone, changes everyday. It’s a great place to work.
Points positifs
Coworkers, flight benefits
Points négatifs
Suck ups

The best part about the job is that every day is a different day. Every day brings new challenges and new problems. The management team is excellent. They are dedicated to try and make all employees happy. The workplace culture is very supportive and both big and little accomplishments are celebrated. The most enjoyable part of the job is solving the problems and feeling like you accomplished something that day. The hardest part of the job would be the work-life balance. The hours are very long.
Points positifs
the job iteself is a pro!
Points négatifs
lack of seniority

working in an airport makes for an exciting experience, and will keep you on your toes in peak seasons.

The people can be unpleasant and entitled but that may just be a customer service thing, the hardest part is taking verbal abuse.


best part of the job is obviously the flight benefits, but health benefits are also very good, and available to even part time employees.


Pay does not seem very competitive but seems to be inline with industry averages.
Points positifs
flight and health benefits
Points négatifs

A typical day at work consists of checking in, boarding and de-boarding flights.
I learned how to problem solve through very stressful times and pressure.

Management was always supportive during work situations and life situations.

My Co-workers were very easy going, and fun to be around.

The hardest part of the job was the standing and the long shifts.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being busy, meeting new people, and solving problems.

Typical day at work was checking in guests for flights, helping with flights, bridging aircrafts. I learned how to really deal with people and how much fun you can have at a workplace. My management team I found unsupportive which is why I left. My coworkers were amazing! The hardest part of the job was dealing with people who you couldn't help due to flight schedule, when someone had died and they couldn't get a flight out. That was heartbreaking. Most enjoyable part of my job was meeting a lot of new people and having fun!

Every employee here will agree with the title statement.

You must pay your dues and work entry level at near-to minimum wage. Probation is 6 months. Cannot apply for any opportunities until you've been working for 6 months. Basic employee perks until you've hit 6 months experience as well.


While you can trade shifts, you will never get something consistent you can rely on to make a second work with without a lot of effort.
Points positifs
Travel discount can be massive when flying standby, $20 to Vegas, for eg.
Points négatifs
Shift lengths vary from one extreme to another.

I was here for two weeks.
Everyone was really friendly and was really helpful whenever I had questions.

Most guests were friendly and understanding when I did not know an answer to a question.

Management was very nice and helpful.
