    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Porter Airlines full-time

    Pros

    Discounted travel on flights that are routinely too full to accommodate your request.

    Cons

    This company rarely, if ever, promotes from within. It's entire future is gambled on a runway extension that will never be approved by the requisite government stakeholders. Managers have no training in how to lead teams, which leads to massive turnover.

    I have been working at Porter Airlines part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cheap travel only by standby

    Cons

    Doesn't matter if you are full time or part-time, you make the same money. Performance doesn't matter. Verbally abused by passengers, and there is no flexibility in the schedule. I hope you don't have another job, school or other responsibilities
