Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at WestJet full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Front line workers are top notch. Pilots, FA's and CSA's are the real deal.
Flight benefits are good but have less value with full planes.

Cons

The functional group VP's leave allot to be desired. Flashes of brilliance but overall they are shockingly bad leaders. Lots of churn and no eye for talent. You need to be a chartered accountant in Finance or don't bother looking for progression.

Advice to Management

Hire Canadian VP's only.

    I have been working at WestJet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The goods just keep coming - starting from the initial phone interview to the in-person to the offer stage. Even though I have been with the organization not too long, it doesn't take much time to figure out the culture viz., friendly, caring, safe, respectable and respectfull.....I can go on....

    Cons

    Have not yet come across anything yet....

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work !
