Its constantly changing (for the better) and it may vary based on station, but base rate is $17.00. You get raise at 6 months, and then raises are yearly. I'm not sure how much it will all total out to. They'll tell you during training.

No. This is ramp only. CSA has their own union and rules.

Are you working 8 hour days? Or… are those long hours real?  Lol

Right now, I work 8 hours, 5 days a week. I give away a shift at least once a week (I love to sleep). The long hours can be optional. Some people choose to take the rest (or all) of another persons shift, and some sign up for OT. I have seen people get mandatory OT, and the most I've seen is 6 hours extended, and its usually only 1 or 2 people. I, personally, have not been extended or picked up shifts. Not all stations have the luxury of being fully staffed, so this is not always the case. As rampers, we go in everyday knowing that getting extended is always a possibility. 🙃
