    Union Employees. The pinnacle of efficiency and competence amirit.
    It's cheap ass Westjet contracting out their ground handling to a beater 3rd party company who can't staff properly. You get what you pay for.

    Didn't westjet have their own ground handling at one point? Probably cost too much and ate into their bottom line. We don't need happy workers.

    I believe they did so for a long time.

    Yep, then when Onyx took over they axed them all in favour of a cheap 3rd party vendor with 1/4 the employees.

    The way it is currently, might as well eliminate the jobs and put a vending machine on the planes.

    Huh? Air Canada has been grossly understaffed for decades. Maybe if they had a "care-antee"?

    I just bent the Calgary airport over. Bags came out in 15 min and ours were in the first dozen. Nothing lost/broken/stolen.
    No bullshit ground crew delays and a free ride home.

    Like a Bauss!

    As aircraft maintenance, WJ starts hilariously low. I audibly snickered in my interview when they told me the start wage and told them it would be a 33% paycut for me, the interviewer got defensive and proudly proclaimed that he had to take a paycut when he started. Like his poor decision making was supposed to be a industry standard.

    Needless to say I wasn't offered the position.

    This. Westjet acts like they’re doing you some sort of favour by “allowing” you to work for them. It’s a joke. Fortunately, the effect of the Koolaid seems to have worn off a few years ago, and now they’re having trouble attracting staff for almost every role within the company.
