Assist our guests requiring special assistance including pushing wheelchairs, escorting unaccompanied minors, guiding people with visual impairments
Operate assistive mobility devices (i.e. Eagle II assist wheelchair device) for guests requiring assistance

Ensure WestJet promises and procedures are followed in line with the rules and regulations of governing bodies (i.e. Transport Canada)
Handle concerns with empathy and solve guest challenges with empowerment
Assist in grooming the aircraft which can include light cleaning of seats, seat-pockets, and floor
Maintain eye contact and smiling with each of our guests and coworkers
Demonstrate a positive attitude and commitment to teamwork in a friendly, caring and atmosphere
