COVID-19: An Update on Hiring

In October, 2021, WestJet implemented a COVID-19 vaccination policy to align with the federal government’s vaccine requirements. With the safety of all our WestJetters and guests as a priority at that time, all active WestJetters and new hires were expected to be fully vaccinated as a result.

On June 14, 2022, the WestJet Group welcomed the announcement from the federal government suspending the vaccine requirements for federally regulated employees effective June 20, 2022.

The WestJet Group is pleased to be able to align our internal requirements and suspend our vaccination policy for all current WestJetters (active/inactive/LOA) and for future hires, effective June 27, 2022. This relaxation of federal vaccination requirements is however considered a suspension only, and not a dissolution. What that means is that should the federal government reinstate the vaccine requirement, so too will the WestJet Group.

We are cautiously optimistic that this suspension signifies the end of the pandemic and believe it is the right time, from a safety perspective, to be able to make this change.

We are actively hiring for many of our front line positions and Corporate roles. The airline industry continues to be one of the most affected industries, and continues to stabilize through the employment of many new team members to support the resurgence in travel. We do still have active recall lists that need to be reviewed and considered as part of our hiring practices.

We are working with our key school partnerships to continue our commitment to pipelining future talent for the health and growth of the aviation industry in Canada.

We continue to offer a virtual hiring experience as our primary means of connecting and engaging with our candidates through the leveraging video technology throughout the hiring process. In some situations for identified roles,  in-person interviews may take place as required.

Westjet has implemented a new “Remote Work” program where some employees, based on the nature of their role, may have the option to work from home. Our campus has re-opened to support those roles that are required to work from the office.
