    I worked at WestJet full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If your employee ID is 4 digits or less you would have been lucky to work here. It was at a time when the culture was the true identity of the company. Today you'd be lucky if anyone remembers your name, gives you a hug or cares about your WestJet future, as it's "every owner for themselves".

    Cons

    Slogan of company should be: WE ONLY CARE ABOUT MAKING MONEY
    Travel benefits are no longer benefits, it's more like winning a lottery for a seat
    Do yourself a huge favour and take the pay increase anywhere else before you accept the decrease that comes with any job at WestJet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing managed at WestJet is EGO. The true heros are the front-line people who deserve ALL the credit but sadly only receive minimum wages and increasing expectations to do more.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was not very professional. The interviewers ended up bickering with each other. A full out gossip fest. I was not impressed. They were very confusing and kept wanting me to submit different answers for the same questions. Trying to show favoritism between the two. I would suggest that they correlate and make sure that the interviewers are in sync with each other before they start the interview process.

Perhaps WestJet Airlines follows the Southwest Airlines business model while soaring over Canada -- and beyond -- because so many Canadians are fond of flying south and west out of the cold. Many of the low-fare carrier's approximately 95 destinations lie in Canada, but even more are scattered around the US (especially the Sunbelt and Hawaii), the Caribbean, and Mexico. WestJet operates a fleet of about 90 Boeing 737s that feature live seatback satellite TV (from BCE's Bell ExpressVu). Most of its destinations outside Canada are vacation spots, and subsidiary WestJet... More
