  1. Great Seasonal Contract but does not have stability

    Former Employee - Flight Attendant in New York, NY

    I worked at CanJet (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great short-haul flying with easy crew. Small company so it feels more like a family.

    Cons

    Lack communication to the employees in terms of the the company's future goals. Seasonal contract workers were laid off after the winter season with not a lot of opportunities to come back to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Better Communication

    Pros

    Lots of free time for another job or for yourself Work and go home the same day Travel benefits with Transat

    Cannot bid for schedule unless you have enough seniority Low seniority means waking up @ 3am for an early morning flight on your reserve days Occasional layoffs to preserve the company's integrity

    Pros

    Good extended health benefits and guaranteed salary of 85 flying hours whether you fly or not. Extra tax free income when on duty over meal hours.

    Cons

    Unknown future for us beyond May 2014 as our major flying contract for Transat Holidays expires. Think about quitting your job just to work for them this winter 2013/2014.

    Pros

    Close to family and the work environment is pleasant. The pay is fair.

    Cons

    There is a great deal of micromanagement. "CanJet Material" is a phrase commonly used to describe employees that easily sacrifice home life for work. Even then, being on call 24/7 doesn't make you a respected employee. There's an air of "good-old-boys club" that seeps through everything.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your employees. They have been with you through thin and thinner. Reward them with respect. Be more flexible and trust your long-time employees to make good decisions. Try to see that happy employees are more productive employees.
