Its an adventure but not a place to build your career...
Executive Chef (Former Employee) – Boyne Resorts-Michigan – January 24, 2016
Boyne Resorts is a group of golf and ski properties across the nation. The 3 Michigan properties are home base for the company and, unfortunately, the worst places to work.
Boyne Mountain is ground zero for the company with regards to money spent on upkeep, new outlets, equipment, etc. The other properties don't get the attention they need.
As a supervisor your day will be spent putting out fires and dealing with issues created by the huge seasonal staff that is basically untrained ( no training budget) and the unrealistic demands of the rollercoaster like business model.
The upper management is not available during peak business periods as they are constantly traveling and enjoying the fruits of your labor.
Boyne might be a good fit for the young professional that wants to learn by making mistakes with someone else's business, but it's not a good place to build your career. The constant staff turn over causes chaos as good managers and staff are either tossed every few seasons for younger and greener workers that work cheaper or they get smart and leave. This causes an environment of " every man for himself" and fear of job loss if you speak up to the wrong person.
Boyne is best known in the Northern Michigan region for its poor treatment of the local workforce and is forced to bring in foreign student workers and recruit staff from outside the area....
Let the worker beware....
Cheap skiing, golf, food discounts
Poor upper management, young inexperienced middle management, unrealistic demands made upon the poorly trained entry level workers.

Crisis to crisis reation management system, with no proactive planning. Every day is new crises.If that is your gig, have fun.j Oh yeah, you are also working well below poverty level with not benefits and virtually no schedule.

If your Looking for a career, look elsewhere. This place barely offers jobs. There are no advancement opportunities, you literally get laughed at for even mentioning a raise. Management is non existent, your pretty much on your own if you have a problem. The department heads barely know what to do, they recycle lower management every couple of months. I once had three different managers in a span of a year. They hire unprofessional people to say the least. Most of the staff are more concerned with smoking pot, than in doing a good job. Stay far away from this place!!!
discounted ski and golf passes
bad management, bad work enviroment, even worse coworkers.

I love working at Boyne mountain. But, a huge but is that the management is unprofessional. The other employees smoke marijuana on property or leave property and smoke it and come back high. On top of being high at work they drive trucks from condo to condo high. So that means that they are putting other people in danger and becoming a liabilty to Boyne. So if they didn't have a bunch of pot heads at Boyne resort I would love my job more. And if you are not a pot head u become a target for bullying. And when you tell management they do nothing about it so, yay go boyne. They obviously love the pot heads.

You will find most management has no college education. Many managers have been fired and rehired over qualified applicants. Very few female leadership roles. This is a very old,school work environment led by a silver spoon owner. Ownership is unstable and stability of future business is weak. They have sold off many of their so called, resorts and only manage. Employees are underpaid and treated poorly.

A typical day involves problem assesment and corrections needed to sole the problem. Every day brings something new to learn. The hardest and the most enjoyable part of the job are the same, troubleshooting an issue and figuring out the solution to the problem. A challenge that demands thought and creativity and providing a sense of satisfaction of a job well done when the issue is resolved.
