    Pros

    Great benefits, Pension plan, flexibility of schedule. These are often taken for granted and not easy to find in today's work environment.

    Cons

    Big company with constant change and cutbacks. A lot of pressure is put on frontline employees to perform but tools to do the job have been removed due to cost-saving measures. This has taken a lot of fun out of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to stay productive and profitable without putting constant pressure on frontline employees. The constant change in procedures leaves employees in a constant state of confusion - impossible to keep up and do the job properly.

    Pros

    Air Canada travel and health benefits are the best part of the career. But that's it...

    Cons

    Shift work and not enough sick days .Working on the ramp as a LSA. The planes now are not groomed to standards and I feel sorry for the flight crews... They have a tough career and a dirty plane to work on with the new (min turns)

    Advice to Management

    The middle management change is coming ...(and long overdo) in all stations... thanks Ben.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Perfect job for those who like to travel and live life out of a suitcase.

    Cons

    First few years can be stressful. Flights routes are determined by sonority with the company. Expect to work on weekends, holidays and overnight flights when first starting off. Hourly wage is decent don't expect to work no more than 100 hours a month.

    Pros

    We were given very good benefits

    Cons

    The pay was awful .... most of it was taken away for taxes and insurance and union .... and the hours are terrible .... If you just got hired, expect to work overnight most of the time .... very stressful work environment especially while on probation....

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about statistics and be more human ....
