Call Center Agent (Former Employee) – Broomfield, CO – July 14, 2017
My time at Vail was very valuable in the sense that I received my first experience in a true corporate environment. The job itself was good, but with the work we did and all the slack we got from customers, because we are who they speak with 90% of the time. It would have been nice to feel appreciated from the higher ups, and paid more than we earned.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Truckee, CA – February 8, 2017
You work here to have fun, not to advance your career. Opportunities for advancement vary from department to department, but are rare. The company offers cool name brand discounts, but insurance and benefits don't kick in until you've worked 750 hours (almost all of winter), so you'll have to find insurance for yourself somewhere else.
Valet attendant/Bellman (Current Employee) – Vail, CO – February 6, 2017
Wage is far below average, however the atmosphere and structure is great. the wage is lower than sister properties providing the same or less service. should be even across the board and it is not. Uniform is sub par in relation to sister property
health insurance, wage compensation compared to sister properties, not the same acrcoss the board
Lodging Accounts Manager (Former Employee) – Keystone Resort, CO – February 6, 2017
I had an amazing experience working for Vail Resorts as it related to coworkers and job duties. It is like anything in hospitality where they expect the benefits to out weight the really low pay. Well, it didn't in the expensive mountain towns. The culture is what is amazing but no one can afford to live in the mountains with the low pay. Lots of turn over. Housing crisis in Summit County, Colorado.
Great company, great training, good job responsibilities and experience
Great people to work with but do it for the ski bum life not making money.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Broomfield, CO – February 3, 2017
Didn't pay nearly as much commission as promised. Great place to work but don't expect to earn major $$$$. Booked vacations for the rich and famous. Ski a lot which is amazing, just can't afford much else.
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
