  1. "Great Seasonal Contract but does not have stability"

    Former Employee - Flight Attendant in New York, NY
    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

    I worked at CanJet (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You get to travel! Our fleet was small so we almost always had layovers. It was easy to be upgraded to "in charge "
    The company was small, so there were many opportunities to relocate and move up in seniority, if your timing was right.

    Cons

    There was always a power struggle between management and crew. Management had few ideas of what flying was ACTUALLY like and imposed many impractical rules and guidelines based on "it would be nice if. " Office superiors had incredible ego problems and treated the flight crew like they were property.

    Pros

    The employees were great a real "family". Many people have left to go to other airlines but really miss their friends and how well we worked with one another.

    Cons

    The company is constantly changing their business plan, nothing seems to work. They have layer off their entire staff possibly for a final time.Ken get your children out of the business and get someone in who knows what they're doing. You owe it to your employees who have been loyal.

    Advice to Management

    You had an amazing airline, people who loved their jobs, get someone in who really knows how a business works. With all the start up airlines who are gaining success there's no reason why you couldn't make it work.

    Lots of free time for another job or for yourself

    Occasional layoffs to preserve the company's integrity
