A bit lonely
Sales and Service Agent (Funcionário Atual) –  Moncton, NB28 de Janeiro de 2019
The position is stressful at times but overall the guests are good. I recommend this company for someone who prefers to not interact with coworkers and prefers to be alone all the time as you do work from home.
Prós
Excellent airfare for employees and health benefits
Contras
It gets a little lonely

Better places to work
Flight Attendant (Ex-Funcionário) –  Toronto, ON25 de Janeiro de 2019
It's not the worst airline to work for but you can definitely get much better pay, benefits and treatment from other companies. Management is absolutely horrible but the people you work with daily are awesome for the most part so that takes away from the headache of the constantly changing service standards and policies. They are expanding and possibly bitting off more than they can chew.

They preach about how WestJet is a family in the beginning but you will quickly learn that you are just a number and easily disposable to them as with any other typical big corporation.

Of course as with any airline, the ability to travel is a big plus. Additionally, I will say what WestJet offers that other airlines like Air Canada don't, is the option to commute so you're not forced to chose between moving and having a job. It can be tiresome but worth it if you have the patience.

Overall, not terrible, it's a job....But if you want to pay
your bills, have a life and have management you actually like and they treat you with kindness and respect....exercise other options first.

Great place
Flight Attendant/Boeing (Funcionário Atual) –  Vancouver, BC25 de Janeiro de 2019
I'm proud to be part of the WestJet family. The culture is one of the best in Canada. we take care of our people and our guests. The best part of working for WestJet is the ability to see the world while working for one of the best companies in Canada.

WestJet and WestJet Encore
Operations Lead (Ex-Funcionário) –  Comox, BC23 de Janeiro de 2019
WestJet Encore is regional pay structure which is too low for the job responsibilities and shift times. If you're in a larger city there is room for advancement or if you're willing to relocate.
Prós
Travel benefits
Contras
Pay, shifts, terrible work-life balance.

AWESOME work environment
Sales and Services Home Agent (Ex-Funcionário) –  Moncton, NB23 de Janeiro de 2019
WestJet is an amazing company to work for and the work was simple. Book reservations for guests. The system is easy to learn and there's always support to help. The perks are awesome. You can travel anywhere WestJet flies for pennies. Literally. You even get buddy passes for your family/friends so they can fly at majorly discounted rates. And hey, who doesn't want to travel?

Working from home was the best part. Not having to go out in the cold/rain/etc but being in the comfort of your own home office, THAT was the life.

It just wasn't for me. After years of working in different call centres 'on the phone', I needed a change and wanted to do something else, something OFF the phone. That's the reason I left. I highly recommend WestJet to anybody who enjoys work as a customer service rep and enjoys working alone as opposed to a bigger environment/facility, this job's for you.

Nice benefits, dental, medical, flight perks, stock options, constant change, poor upper management and low morale
Flight Attendant (Ex-Funcionário) –  Calgary, AB22 de Janeiro de 2019
The company overall offered longevity for the right employee and decent advancement opportunities. Upper management seemed to be ever changing. Also all guidelines, policies and customer offerings inflight were constantly under review and changing; exhausting really.

Everyone Matters
Sales Super-Agent (Ex-Funcionário) –  Calgary, AB18 de Janeiro de 2019
A group of individuals who truly look out for one another. Support is not hard to find and guidance is plentiful. They are only as strong as their weakest link, but their weakest link is always given the tools and support to be the strongest in the group.

As a contractor
IT Contractor (Ex-Funcionário) –  Calgary, AB17 de Janeiro de 2019
WestJet has a great culture and fantastic group of people. From its small beginnings with great small company charm, it has grown to make it very difficult to keep with those charms. It's still a great company, but I miss the older/smaller days.

Work hard travel often
Flight Attendant (Ex-Funcionário) –  Toronto, ON11 de Janeiro de 2019
This job can be a lifestyle if you want it to be. The money will not be good for the first 5 years and you will work hard. But you cannot beat the travel benefits.

good place to start
Receiving Inspector/ Rotable Component Contoller (Funcionário Atual) –  Calgary, AB18 de Dezembro de 2018
This is a good place to start a career and learn.
The team is very supporting.
I got the opportunity to study and get a diploma in Aircraft Maintenance and the company paid for it, which is really awesome.

Must like Blue Koolaid
Customer Service Sales Representative (Ex-Funcionário) –  Calgary, AB13 de Dezembro de 2018
Everyone is surprised when you tell them
What an awful place it is to work. If you drink the Koolaid and become part of the cult, maybe things work out. If you’re a call Center agent no one cares, there’s no koolaid at home nor do they attempt to make you feel a part of the company. The scheduling is awful, the amount of work you need to do is not at all equivalent to what you get paid.

On a steady decline
SSA (Funcionário Atual) –  Calgary2 de Dezembro de 2018
The disappointment I feel working for this company is unparalleled.
Westjet has officially lost their way in in an effort to grow (irresponsibly). This company is riddled with lies, greed, and a lack of forward thinking business strategy.
The people making the directional decisions would seem to be completely unaware that a happy workforce is an efficient one.
Westjet has time and time again shown that it has no interest in making sure their front line staff is taken care of i.e., pay-scale restructuring, cutting bonuses, and even taking away breaks from their overworked under compensated staff.
This has been a great company in the past but is now more and more becoming a terrible place to work.
Prós
Flight benefits, Stock options
Contras
Unreasonable and unwavering management, lack of culture, pay is modest, lack of feeling valued, business needs are always put before human needs, expectations for productive hours are unreasonable.

lots of benefits
Baggage Service Agent (Funcionário Atual) –  Edmonton, AB28 de Novembro de 2018
working in an airport makes for an exciting experience, and will keep you on your toes in peak seasons.

The people can be unpleasant and entitled but that may just be a customer service thing, the hardest part is taking verbal abuse.

best part of the job is obviously the flight benefits, but health benefits are also very good, and available to even part time employees.

Pay does not seem very competitive but seems to be inline with industry averages.

WestJet
Manager (Ex-Funcionário) –  Calgary, AB26 de Novembro de 2018
I worked at WestJet for 14 years and have seen many changes over that time leaving after being in middle management for 10+ years. What discourages me is that management continually wants to cut costs and some departments haven’t seen new FTEs / funding in over 6 years despite constantly expanding roles and duties as the company grows. In addition, mistakes are made and lessons learned are written but then ignored leading to continual fail cycles across many lines of business. It’s ok to fail especially as you try new things, but the corporate culture depends on being able to “make it up” on the backs of the dedicated and hard working employees. In addition, many of the upper management expect around the clock work while externally talking about “work / life balance”. If you are actually looking for a great corporate culture and not just a very strong external sales pitch then I would not recommend WestJet.

Long hours short pay
Flight Attendant (Funcionário Atual) –  Toronto, ON21 de Novembro de 2018
For what we do, I feel like we don't get compensated nicely. I say great marketing team but they need to work on treating the employees better. Often work holidays and hours are never consistent. Fun experience when I first started, but I need more stability and I need to be home more often.
Prós
Meeting new friends, travel benifit
