Overall reviews at Air Canada
Excellent company to work for!
Every day a new adventure and a new experience. Got to travel a lot in my functions and the people are really committed. I really do miss working there.
You learn very quickly how to resolve operational issues.
In Toronto AMF, it is very fluid, especially when it comes to weather delays and cancellations. IRROPS have become the norm in Toronto, and with that the responsibility to think outside the box, focus, and act with a +2hour window.
The culture at times, can be a hazard, but that comes with any big organization(s).
Overall, great experience if you want to see and learn front line operational issues.
The experience that you gain, and carry, is invaluable. No two problems are alike. No two experiences are the same. Everyday you come into work, everyday you will have a unique experience, conversation, problem, and possible solution.
With all that bundled together. It's the experience you will gain.

It would be busy & a lot of flights to prepare.
Time management, working with others.
It was fun & you learn how to work at a fast pace.
Preparing items before handing.

AWESOME Place to work at!!!
Was employed for 32 years. I have had the honour of working in many positions with great team spirit, great teammates, great job, great management.
All in all, Air Canada is a FANTASTIC place to work at. I considered it a family throughout my career.

Perfect for someone who wants to see the world
Great place to work and advance! Cheap to travel, but pay is terrible! Great management and staff! It is not a place to mess around but perfect if serious!
Interesting and fascinating multicultural environment
The people are fun. The multi-cultural background is fascinating. We meet in the lunch room first . We talk about our previous day's activities, about sports, entertainment and cultural matters such as cuisine. We are then briefed by our managers as to their expectations and disciplinary requirements and potential problems
Help desk cordinator
Enjoyed my position helping my coworkers, 24/7, will go back to AC when all comes back to normal again. Learnt a lot about the airline business, its a fast pace company and very interesting.
A great place for
When the industry is stable you can learn and progress rapidly The ability to see the world is a true benefit Large Company with a lot of opportunity to work in different areas
Interview Process - Terrible
Interviews are set up via email. No phone call. No pre-screening.
No discussion in regards to compensation package.
Only a short notice is provided to prepare for a slide-deck presentation (2 days, from initial notice to date of interview).
From when we sat down, there was continual yawning and distracted eye-glancing to the hall to see who was passing. There was swearing in the interview.
First impressions are important. Each employee represents the company when they are on the corporate premise. It was an unprofessional experience.
ConsUnprofessional, no structure, lack of process and tools established with certain divisions of the company.
If You like travel and travelers this is the place for you.
You will be able to improve any customer service and management skills you think you may already have. This company will increase the speed and dedication to customers by 3 to 5 times anything you have done outside the airline business.
ConsYour work life is at the mercy of Canadian weather.
