    Pros

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

    Low seniority means waking up @ 3am for an early morning flight on your reserve days
    Occasional layoffs to preserve the company's integrity

    Current Contractor - Flight Attendant in Quebec, QC (Canada)

    I have been working at CanJet as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Depending where you are based, seniority climbs fast and you can quickly choose your schedule. Been working for CanJet since 2012 and already I can choose almost 100% my schedule. I can work for 8-9 days a month and have a lot of time for myself outside of work. Health and dental benefits are very good. Pay is fair and comparable to most other airlines. Airline is very safe and training is comparable or even harder than some of the competition (even bigger airlines like Air Transat for example).

    Cons

    Aircrafts are slightly old and it can sometimes get frustrating having to deal with not fully functional entertainment system for example. I can also say that the future is not so predictable and it is hard to tell what will happen in 2014-2015.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like if customer service at the headquarters was better. It sometimes affects the flight atttendants in their work as it doesn't give them trust enough in the ground employees to provide professional enough service as we would expect from them.

    I have been working at CanJet full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    I have been working at CanJet

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
