I believe Air Canada has been hiring lately. Perhaps they are interested in people with some experience on the 737?

5 orange stickers is normal if plane has 10 wheels on it. I feel the biggest issue is the attitude towards Tech Ops with Team America in YYC. Moral in the Tech Ops group is at an all time low!

There is an internal campaign where WestJetters are supposed to provide information on “What does the Spirit of Canada mean to you?” Perhaps this is because the new international management team doesn’t know?

Its simple. The BS has shown itself for what it is. Why surveys, the same year over year, no improvements. Throw them another bbq that'll shut them up. Continuous non-sense training which just numbs the brain. Sit through human factors training which tells you how bad night shift is for your health and then management turns around and loads everyone up on night shift. No efforts to throw the guys on a nights a break. This changed un Hedley. He should be the first to see the axe.

Then yes theres the pay. All it takes is a few people to step and see theres a big world of opportunity out there and then the flood gates open. More money, better benefits, better conditions, more enjoyable working environment.

And lets not forget about the biggest BS of all, PACT. Thieves. They just announced, oops we have way more money than we need, didn't see that one coming. Guess we'll stop taking dues. Management stooges.

End of the day its just another good thing gone bad. Shame.
