What kind of career opportunities exist at Toronto Pearson?

Pros

Coworkers are wonderful, I feel valued and supported by management. Lots of opportunity for growth and training. It’s also an exciting place to work.

Cons

The location is not the best but the salary and benefits package make up for this. Some of the office spaces / cubicles are very old and need to be updated.

Advice to Management

I love working here. The only suggestion I have is to add more level 2 EV charging stations for employees.

Lots of opportunity for growth and training.

What is the feeling of job security at Toronto Pearson?

Pros

Pay and benefits. Only if you negotiate. Otherwise, they will pay you significantly less than your counterparts. Benefits are good, if you're given the time to actually use them (no work life balance).

Cons

The company has some very unprofessional people in leadership positions, and specifically in HR. You can't trust anyone. The layoffs didn't clean house. Only kept many of the bad ones who know how to play the game. I wouldn't recommend this place until HR is restructured, only keeping those with skill, compassion and competency who follow best practices and not play favourites across the company, stunting the growth and career development of anyone not in their clique. The CEO needs to take charge and make some changes if the company is going to turn around. Otherwise, they will keep losing their best people.

Advice to Management

Take a leadership 101 course

The layoffs didn't clean house.

How are senior leaders perceived at Toronto Pearson?

Pros

The pay is good. Probably the reason most people stay. But not for managers. Their unionized employees get paid more than them and everyone knows it. Negotiate if being hired. They will try to lowball you. There are managers making several thousands less than others with the same title. Same with vacation time. The company tells you not to talk about your salary because they don't want people to find out. People talk. Everyone knows. That's why there's no respect around here.

Cons

Where do I begin. This is the darkest, most toxic place I have ever worked at. There are some great people in each of the departments, but when the company's HR department is made up of a bunch of lying, unskilled, power hungry people, you can't expect the company to be a good one. Look at the recent layoffs. For non union, managers were allowed to cut their most skilled and knowledgeable employees because of their own fears stemming from their own incompetence. There’s even talk of female employees who were let go because they planned on having children soon. Can anyone say illegal? But of course the company won't admit that. For unionized employees, it was all about seniority. Granted that might be standard practice, but the employees who had passion, skill, didn't play the union games, weren't jaded and actually cared about the company, were let go. You won't hear from any of the laid off on here because the company had them sign non disclosures so that the world wouldn't find out how horrible they were to them. But I really wish they would all speak out because Canada's largest airport is a complete joke. Once you're on the inside, you can't ignore how mismanaged it is. But again, we all talk. Most of us know the dirty truth of what’s been happening. Severance packages? Paid out over months, so that if the laid off person gets a job soon, the company is no longer obligated to pay the remainder of the severance owed to them. Crafty. But don't worry, the company bullied everyone into signing their deals quick so that this could all be swept under the rug and forgotten asap. No one wants us talking about this anymore. But were they treated with any decency? Of course not. Employees with several years of service weren't even give the respect to gather their private effects from their desk. Items that some randoms from HR decided were personal and/or important were boxed up and left for them to pick up. Nice eh. Even people let go with cause over the years, were shown the respect of collecting their belongings, and even had goodbye parties thrown for them. And the new CEO? Useless. She came in at the perfect time to make real and meaningful change to the company. Instead, she has taken a front row seat to setting the company back 20 years. The only glimmer of hope will be the new head of HR. If they can see all of this and make some changes and properly clean house, starting right there in HR, this company might actually stand a chance of turning things around. How this lay-off process was handled was the final straw for many of us, and we can no longer deny how horrible the people in charge here actually are after seeing and hearing about all of this. Honestly, most of us are waiting for this pandemic to be over so that we can get off of this painful sinking ship. Sad really. I hate that I have invested so many years into a company like this that simply doesn’t deserve it. So if you want to work in an amazing place, filled and controlled by the worst people you could possibly imagine, then come to the GTAA.

Advice to Management

Don’t listen to the garbage coming out of HR and from the other toxic leaders. Don’t let them convince you to be less than decent like them.

And the new CEO?
