    Current Employee - Staff in Etobicoke, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Sunwing Airlines full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities for advancement and promotions (given that employees are good and do their job well)
    great management and very friendly atmosphere.
    good startup pay and depending on the department you are able to gain extra income (example sales center)
    always room to grow and learn as long as the employee is willing to learn (unlike all the complainers I have seen on this website)
    good travel benefits (not great but good)

    Cons

    could improve morale by paying more.
    could offer better flight benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more attention to employees and what they got to offer, get rid of the staff (management included) who play favorites and increase pay for employees. increase travel benefits

    Seasonal Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Sunwing Airlines in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I saw a job posting online and e-mailed my cover letter and resume. About three weeks later I received an invitation for an interview. I arrived at the hotel (Holiday Inn - Dixon Rd.) for my 1:15 pm interview at 12:45 pm. There was a line of people waiting to approach a long table of Flight Attendants in uniform. I joined the line and had a nice chat with the people standing behind me who were all also invited for 1:15 pm. When I got to the table I was asked for my papers (Interview invitation, 2 photocopies of Valid passport, list of 3 Business references, and resume). The male FA I spoke to took everything away but the invitation. I was then asked to fill out a form. After which I was given a 'plane ticket' which he wrote my first name on and was instructed to take a seat in the conference room as there would be a short presentation on the airline first before interviews began. About 50 people sat in the room and chatted a little before an FA approached the front of the room and the presentation began. We were told that in Toronto over 3000 people applied, and approx. 1100 were invited for interviews, and of this number only 200 people would be accepted. We would have to wait for 2 weeks before being contacted (we would ALL be contacted no matter what).

    After this we were all instructed to enter another larger room and to take a seat inside. There was already a previous group sitting inside, waiting. Once inside, each person's name was called and we were introduced to two FAs and were taken to another even larger room. Inside this third room were many tables and chairs set up interview style. At each table sat FA's. At my table I had the two FA's I met. One would ask all the questions and the other wrote down all my answers. I was asked about 15 questions (3 sheets of paper) eg. "Tell us about a time you experienced bad customer service? Tell us about how you dealt with conflict with a co-worker?" It seemed never ending, but my interviewers were very friendly and it was like having a nice chat with fast friends. By the end we were all laughing together. After this I was taken back to the 'waiting' room and told to take a seat again. This time there seemed to only be about 20 people waiting. I started yet another chat with the candidates around me (lovely people!) and discovered that what we were waiting for was a second interview. A few people were eliminated from that first round. Again our names were called. A little while into waiting, another big group entered the room. My name was called again and this time I met one person (I later found out that she was likely a HR rep. and not a FA).

    I was taken back into the 'interview room' and sat at another table with her. She said that this time she would be taking her own notes so be patient with her. Then she began to ask her questions (2 sheets of paper). They were much the same questions and mostly about my previous experience eg. "Tell me about a time that you were disappointed with your performance? Tell me about a time your productivity level was low and how you dealt with it?" Again, it was a long process. By this time I was very tired and admit that there was a question that I completely blanked out on, but otherwise I tried to make it into a nice chat and by the end we were once again smiling. When we rose to leave she was very warm and friendly and seemed genuinely happy to meet me.
