COVID-19: An Update on Hiring

In response to COVID-19, we have adjusted our hiring process to ensure we prioritize the safety, health and well-being of our employees and candidates. 


We are hiring for some corporate roles that are required to maintain our business operations. The airline industry was one of the most affected industries and employees remain on furlough. Where possible, we look to either recall or rehire previous WestJetters who have been impacted.

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.

At this time, we are offering a virtual hiring experience where we leverage video technology to engage with our candidates throughout the hiring process.

In response to COVID-19, WestJet has implemented a new “Remote Work” program where some employees may have the option to work from home. Our offices remain closed, and we are currently monitoring a safe return-to-office timeframe.

Be Aware of Fraudulent Job Postings/Offers

WestJet makes every effort to check the legitimacy of our job opportunities that are represented externally and not directly posted on our WestJet.com careers page. WestJet will never request money from job seekers, nor request personal information beyond what is required for a resume (i.e. Social insurance number, banking information).

All individuals who are successful in gaining an offer of employment from WestJet, whether directly or indirectly, are always required to go through a formal recruitment process including an interview with a member of WestJet’s talent team.

If you suspect any fraudulent activity as it relates to employment at WestJet, please contact talent@westjet.com.

Tip: One quick way to know your potential offer is a scam is to check the email address. Legitimate emails from WestJet employees end in @westjet.com. Some recent scams have come from similar email addresses.
