I have been working at WestJet

Pros

Good benefits, the ability to pretty much make your own schedule, good base salaries and great airfare, travel and product benefits.

Cons

The initial trainers, managers and VP's are extremly unprofessional. They are know for taking a disliking to some new hires and creating fictional stories to get them terminated. Many new class hires feel they are poorly treated and very disrepected. WestJet is no longer the fun,friendly and caring company it used to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a closer look on what is happening within your company, your managers and VPs. Take an indepth look in many departments and you will be surprised on what is actually going on.

    Pros

    WestJet is always asking westJetters for advice on how to improve the business. they care to know what employees are thinking. For example they run cultural events throughout the year like culture connections to hear from employees.

    Cons

    Business is growing rapidly so the company and leadership need to work harder at face to face communication with westJetters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, increase your visibility and stay the course , true to your values and the original business case. One fleet, safe, low cost and a great gust experience. Take care of your people , they will take care of the guests!

    I have been working at WestJet

    Pros

    Fanatastic 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.

    Cons

    Hours 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 ManagementAdvice

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