Air Canada wants Ramp Agents.

Pearson Airport is the second largest employment zone in the GTA and working there is a natural fit for Weston and Mount Dennis residents since it’s a short hop away via the UP Express..

Air Canada is advertising full-time jobs for people who can lift repetitively, are able to work nights and who also possess a G or G2 driver’s licence.  The starting pay is minimum wage but they pay benefits, pay for training and provide employees with career development plans.

Interviews will be held on Thursday, September 5 beginning at 10:00 am at 2150 Islington Avenue. Apparently it’s first come, first served.

Get all the details here.
