Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 October 2018
Flying squirrel is a overall cool place to work! The staff are incredibly friendly, although some do lack in training- but they still are helpful and respectful! During my time at the company I learned a lot of in's and outs, about both trampoline facilities and other businesses! There always seems to be a big turn over, as both for management and staff- it is common that they will let you go without cause, or just before your three months. Once you are let go, 99% of the time you are unfortunately black listed from working at any other location. As management comes and goes you do find that shortly after there is a big turn over in staff as rules are changed or added. The overall culture of the work place is what I felt was a second home, near the end however was continuous drama and just wasn't the best place. The hardest part of the job was the hours, as you are there until the job is done appropriately, some nights you are out on time and other you are there excessively late. Although there were some less desirable things about this job, its a great, fast paced environment, with a magnificent amount of costumer interaction.
Free jump time for you and five friends/ family, discounts on food and merch.
Long hours, large employee turn over, can be a big drama enviroment.

Learned to work well and efficiently as a team during the busy weekends. Also my first look into the serving/hospitality industry as a party host by setting up tables, bringing food, and drinks in a timely manor.

Amazing workplace that allows hands-on work. If you love children it’s the place to be ! Always in a friendly environment with the children! Love having fun with children while court monitoring them! Always excited to see similar faces coming back ! Definelty a place I recommend for a first timer looking for a fun and fast pace environment not to mention have a positive vibe around children.

Flying squirrel doesn’t know if they are coming or going. Management is ridiculously dumb. They will let you go for no reason and never give you a reason. Once you get let go they will black list you so you can’t work at another flying squirrel even if you did your job perfect. The most unprofessional company ever. The owners should have their business license taken away. They also wouldn’t know respect if it hit them all in the face.

Unfortunately I do not recommend seeking employment at Flying Squirrel. Promises are not kept, lies are told, staff underpaid in comparison to other positions (especially kitchen staff) while management is way overpaid. Frankly the business seems a little bit shady.
Shady, higher management (above the GM), unfulfilled promises.
