WestJet - a great place to land a job at

IT Manager (Current Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsFanatastic work enviroment, not a day goes by where I don't laugh several times. Casual dress enviroment, get to wear jeans in winter and shorts in summer. Cheap flight benefits are great as well, save thousands a year in travel expenses.

ConsHours can be long, airline operates 24/7 so I can be called anytime. Profit share is not guarateed, can be a very nice cheque or nothing at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementHaving a CEO with actual airline experience would probably make WJ a more successful airline. Be careful about expanding too much into non-airline ventures.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
