Manager of Housekeeping Services (Former Employee) – Keystone, CO – January 13, 2017
This is absolutely insane and has little relevance to what I am trying to accomplish here. I am simply looking for a job in the OR now that I have moved back to America. My past is my past and I am looking towards the future. Who ever came up with this busy work is succeeding in nothing.
Ski Instructor (Current Employee) – Breckenridge, CO – January 9, 2017
The typical day at work is changes everyday, making the job not redundant and boring. I have learned how to think on my toes in both instructing and keeping my costomers safe. Managment has been good but still seems not very organized. Many of the co-workers are great but others take the job for granted and not very seriously. Overall it has been a great experience working for Vail Resorts and as a ski instructor.
Inspector (Former Employee) – Park City, UT – January 5, 2017
I loved working at Vail. Good people, good benefits, on site child care, free ski pass for you, spouse, and dependents. Very understanding and willing to work with you. Provide PTO, vacation And personal days to help financially in the snow season.
free transportation back and forth from salt lake, on site day care, benefits
Lift Operator (Former Employee) – Breckenridge, CO – December 27, 2016
Title says it all. They are always hiring for a reason. Very high turnover. Employee housing is limited and the low pay makes it near impossible to find housing you can afford in a ski town. During peak season expect to be pressured into 6-7 day workweeks. The only redeeming factor is the ski pass but I would highly suggest working elsewhere and just buying a ski pass. If you really want to make the move to a ski town, Vail Resorts can be a good starting point but as a career move I wouldn't suggest it.
short breaks, workload during peak season, dismal pay for cost of living
Junior Food and Beverage Manager (Former Employee) – Colorado USA – December 22, 2016
This is probably the best job ive ever had. It came with aot of responsibilities but, with the love that i had for the job things seemed alot easier to do. The work might have been alot from time to time. I learnt that customer feedback as well as satisfaction can certainly boost the companies outlook and also its reputation which will eventually boost the sales.
Everything was a Positive. Especially the ski benifits
Mountain Safety Crew Member (Former Employee) – Breckenridge, CO – December 15, 2016
Its alright you know, greatest skiing in North America. Low pay, I guess they say that getting to live in cool places is the rest of the paycheck, which is stupid if you grew up there, in fact people from vail or breck should probably get a rebate on that invisible check. anyways had fun while working theree
Bell captain (Current Employee) – Village at Breckenridge – November 23, 2016
I love working for The Village at Breckenridge. We make great money the benefits are amazing.. I see people grow and move up in the company all the time if that's your choice I prefer a tip job when I live in a resort area and I've been in the valley industry for a very long time always great money
Heavenly Sports (Former Employee) – South Lake Tahoe, CA – November 21, 2016
I enjoyed working at Vail REsorts. I thought they were a very fair equal employer who made sure to positively reinforce their employees. All of my managers were wonderful people as well as fellow employees. The hardest part of the job was dealing with difficult customers on vacation, but that goes with any job. Overall great experience
Guestservice photographer (Former Employee) – Breckenridge, CO – November 15, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of photographing guests in the beautiful outdoor alpine environment of Breckenridge, Colorado. I learned that change in environment sparks inspiration and progression towards future endeavors. The management at Vail Resorts works well because they devote a lot of time and effort in making it run smoothly for the staff as well as guests. This does sometimes require strict rules and guidelines that can have negative affects on coworkers, but the company is very open to new ideas and changes as far as mechanics and logistics in order to better serve its employees. The hardest part of the job was probably the physical aspect of bearing the cold winter climate. In a way, this was also one of the most enjoyable parts of the job; to be outside in the snow all day, photographing happy people, laughing, and having a good time!
Snowboard Instructor (Former Employee) – Vail, CO – November 10, 2016
During a typical day you would show up to a line up and meet the people that you where teaching for the day. After that i would ride with the group after talking and assessing there ability's. I would then take students and design a lesson based on what they would like to learn and or approve. The time that i was there i learned a lot about how to communicate with people while trying to change there riding even though they may not have really wanted to change. Most of the management was great but some of the management only cared about there numbers and statistics and not with helping you develop and improve as an instructor. The Hardest part of the job was managing expectations of individuals. The most enjoyable was effecting a positive change in students riding.
