    Former Employee - Sales Centre Agent in Etobicoke, ON
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Sunwing Airlines full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing really its a minimum wage job that requires dealing with angry customers 90% of the time

    Cons

    -base salary is $14.25 per hour -can be schedule anywhere from 8am-12am -90% of calls are complaints, 10% are bookings -little to no support from management; supervisors tell you to handle calls yourself unless the customer is literally yelling at you to transfer them over that is the only time they will take the call.

    Advice to Management

    Transferring calls to supervisors and loyalty should be made easier - if a client is already angry chances are they will not calm down speaking to the same agent over and over again.
