When Vail Resorts recruiters and management reached out to me, It sounded like a great job! Average account managers "make $40k a year average" with fantastic perks.
The truth is Vail Resorts was looking for experienced sales people to replace the "Ski bums and college kids" that have been doing the job before and build up accounts for the company. The blow back on the company has been deep and severe due to the (as what they describe "misinformation") lies that were given to us on day one. With good earnings reports and positive light coming from Wall St, the truth is that they were trying to mislead us buy having us sell and manage, but more important, fill volumes of CRM data so that they can pester our clients with information and not allow us to do our jobs. Vail Resorts lack proper CRM tolls for their teams, are not open to new ideas and fail to understand business and sales cycles.
Management does not understand experienced sales people and provide false information.
