An overall nice place to work
Executive Chef (Former Employee), Durango, COJune 10, 2015
Pros: Free items, extensive HR promotions and activities
Cons: Lack of management
The workplace was surrounded by very beautiful scenery so that was nice. A normal day was spent either doing service in one of the outlets or production in the banquet kitchen. The hardest part of the job was the corporate structure and lack of communication. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to create a fun atmosphere for our guests. Our co-workers tried as often as possible to lend a hand, which was nice since our management team was so lacking.

Rewarding work in a vacation setting
Driver (Former Employee), Durango, COJanuary 25, 2013
Pros: not much supervision, trusted to get the job done.
Cons: tough to drive with a family at night in a blizzard.
I volunteered for the early driving shifts, usually getting out of bed at 2:00 a.m., getting the vehicle ready and picking up passengers for 90 minute trip to the airport, often driving in raging blizzards. Learned a lot about road safety and driving in hazardous driving conditions. Great manager, who just trusted us to get to where we were supposed to be on time. Co-workers were fine, but we mainly worked on our own. Hardest part was stress of driving in extreme conditions. Most enjoyable part was guest compliments for getting families to their destination safely. Served on resort Safety Committee.
