Exciting growing Canadian company!
Digital Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 April 2019
Fiasco is a Calgary success story. We started as a small scoop shop and are now are in over 2000 retailers across the country! It's a fast-paced work environment and no day is ever the same, which keeps things exciting and interesting! We have an awesome and very different culture than most corporate environments. If you love working hard, getting to see the fruits of your labour, growing as an individual and professional, having a say in what's done and how we do things, being creative, having fun, getting involved and giving back to your community, and eating gelato, then Fiasco might just be the perfect home for you. :)
Pros
Great culture, flexibility, able to see the fruits of your labour and make decisions you wouldn't in a larger company, tons of opportunities to give back to the community, growth opportunities, creativity encouraged, supportive team members, fast paces/growing company, lunch prepared and served daily, ALL the gelato!
Cons
Growing company (can have some growing pains), not as "structured" as some employers.

Amazing Culture & Opportunities
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 April 2019
Fiasco is an amazing place to work - the core values lead all of the decisions and the feedback is transparent and in the moment. The 'eating gelato everyday' thing really never gets old - either does feeling excited to get to work everyday and unlimited vacation. The team is like a family and everyone truly cares for one another.
Pros
Subsidized, house made lunch every day, unlimited opportunities for growth
Cons
Culture shock - VERY different from typical corporate culture!

I worked with them for a summer and they had varying and inconsistent roles that you were required to do. They were inconsistent with management styles.

Free lunches, free gelato

Management, hours

High growth, high opportunity job with amazing company culture
Sales (Current Employee) –  Calgary24 October 2018
As a B-Corporation the company is driven by more than just profit, which makes for a really rewarding culture and workplace - it's about doing the right thing and having a community impact.
The brand is growing fast across Canada which means things often move & change very quickly. This can be stressful to keep up but it's a tremendous opportunity to work at the company. The employee perks are great and the facility is an inspiring place to work at everyday.

As a team member, you are given the freedom to try new things & innovate but also the freedom to fail (in creative positions more than technical ones though). Recommend you have an entrepreneurial mindset to succeed here, with a desire to grow with the company rather than just show up for a pay check. As a growing company, some of the systems

There can be high turnover during the 90 day probationary period for new hires but this is because accountability and performance expectations are high across the board, and many people are not used to this coming in.
Pros
health benefits, profit sharing & employee ownership, lunch program, free gelato & coffee, flexible vacation, professional development fund, company library, event tickets, team building
Cons
Don't have some of the tools/resources compared to bigger companies.

Not what it seems
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 October 2018
Though everyone is friendly it is clear if you don't make it into the clique you aren't going to keep your job.
In the 3 months I was there they went through 10 employees, new and long standing employees.
They like to shame employees as a way of correction.
They are so close to being a great company but many faults.
Group lunch is ok except if you work production and you might be too late and the food is gone or it's food you normally wouldn't eat because it is low quality
Pros
Free gelato
Cons
Only popular people make it
