    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

    I worked at Porter Airlines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you will work with are very nice and easy to collaborate with.

    Cons

    Upper management closed minded when it comes to new ideas. Corporate employees are an undervalued asset. This is very apparent due to high turnover. Very low, unsustainable salary. Minimal vacation days. Family day is not even given to staff working in provinces where it is a public holiday. Perpetually understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Place higher value on employees . Low salary and benefits such as vacation and work flexibility causes an environment of distain toward upper management.
