    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Sunwing Airlines part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flight benefits are not bad, but it’s a charter airline so most seats are usually full. Although they do have a partnership with AC.

    Cons

    Management over hires and then will mass terminate employees stating that they aren’t a good fit however they seem to have a very low standard for their current employees. The company is simply a paradox. Try other airlines, you will be much happier.
