    I have been working at Skyservice full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The environment at SkyService is very positive. The daily workload is something that people who enjoy repetition will appreciate though every aircraft which comes and goes has slightly different needs. Always having a positive attitude is key (just like everywhere) but as with a good track record and eagerness to learn, management allows you quite a bit of freedom to go about your daily routines.

    Cons

    The environment is very judgmental. Everyone is given the benefit of the doubt when they start but people who are chippy, lazy, or categorically typecast become 'labelled' and are somewhat socially segregated. The repetitive nature of the job can become tiresome, regardless off the cool factor, and those who have talent/attitude are not presented with opportunities to grow and advance.

    Learn to negotiate the bodyguard of lies that surround the awful truth.

    Is YUL TC any better than it was when Nationair had a accident with a DC8. Just grease the right palms and you remain in business.

    I have been working at Skyservice full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company is small enough to take rapid decisions and change policies and procedures quickly. The very diversified activities allow for financial and employment stability.

    Cons

    Because there are so many different activities, there are many ways of doing a single thing and employees have to gain a large amount of corporate knowledge to operate effectively.
