    I worked at Air Canada full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People with connexions can get promotions that can double their salaries from $13 to $27 in a click of an eye!.The requirement are a very easy test called lou29 and a very easy nterview ( which is only a political tool to choose people the union and some managers like ) You can travel with Air Canada planes with unlimited ticket. This is tricky because with a $13 hour wage you don't have money in your pocket to travel unless you live with your parents or your spouse have a good salary. Many people work in this company only due to that point.

    Cons

    There is no promotion based on merit. There is a culture among the workers that it is imposed to worker since you arrive at it: 'the less you do the better'. When you enter as a station attendant you start with minimal salary $12.5 and it takes 6 years to be able to get $15 in this company which is completely ridiculous. Because of all that it is very important to pass the lou29 and to have 'friends' in the union and managers that help you in the interview in order to get a lead position or to become agent which basically doubles your salary and increments your benefice astoundingly.
