WestJet named one of Canada's best places to work

CALGARY, Aug. 9, 2017 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced that Indeed, Canada's number one job search site, has named WestJet top ten in its list of Best Places to Work in Canada, as determined by WestJet employee reviews through Indeed's website.

"When WestJet talks about success we talk about things like culture, cost and competitive spirit, but the word that defines us most is care," said Mark Porter, WestJet Executive Vice President, People and Culture. "Being deliberate about our caring culture and how we develop it is critical to our success. Being considered one of the top places to work in Canada is an honour, especially because it is determined by past and current employees."

"Great place to work with an amazing culture! I've worked in many airlines and by far Westjet has been my ultimate favorite company to work for. I would say the hardest part of my job would be to be away from home and deal with unsatisfied customers, because unfortunately as an airline not every aspect can be satisfying for our flyers but we do our best to keep them as happy and safe as we can!"

"Company reviews can greatly impact a job seeker's decision on where they apply," said Jodi Kasten, managing director at Indeed Canada. "The companies that made our Best Places to Work in Canada list offer an exemplary employee experience, receiving praise for their commitment to offering a great culture, work-life balance and great pay & benefits among many other factors."
