CALGARY — WestJet has been named one of Alberta’s top three workplaces in the province by Indeed, one of the world’s leading job sites.

Based on the site’s hundreds of thousands of company reviews, WestJet earned an overall star rating of 4.1 out of 5, scoring high marks in five categories: Work/Life Balance (3.7); Salary/Benefits (3.6); Job Security/Advancement (3.6); Management (3.6); and Culture (4.2).
