    Pros

    Free lunch,f riendly co-workers, overtime is welcome, near the airport and main roads

    The 6am shifts are dreadful if you live far from Dorval area and you are using public transportation. Aside from 747 bus you'll be forced to use night buses.

    Pros

    Food available all day ! Great team work between management team. Action all day long... You cannot fall asleep !

    Cons

    No salary increase in 8 years for management. Low benefits, losses of benefits over time. Unionized employees have better benefits than management. 24h / 7 day schedule, 365 day per year. Need to work every holidays. NO recognition by head office. No human focus from the company. Lucky to have a GM that takes care of us.

    Advice to Management

    Your most important resources are the humans working for you !

    Pros

    -Friendly working environment, lots of middle age woman in office, who are very kind. Free lunch, and always snacks around brought by employees.
    -Some good managers.

    Cons

    -below average pay, and little room for advancement.
    -Management are not prone to change.
    -ERM systems always changing, because of top level managements' politics. New guy wants new system, which scraps all old processes, and then when new guy comes again, and things change again. All with little benefit to the company, and alot of costs.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring and retaining younger employees with better benefits packages. Build a data driven culture.
