Executive Chef (Current Employee) –  Vernon, NJSeptember 10, 2019
You will arrive with optimism in your heart, but it will wither and die the minute you step through the doors. Management doesn't care and will constantly try to cover up the fact that no one wants to work, be there, or will hold anyone accountable for the atrocious job they do. Pay is minimal and you have to fight for every cent you get.

Great place for experience in Snowboard/Ski field
Terrain Park Maintenance Crew (Former Employee) –  Vernon, NJMarch 31, 2019
This place really gets its workers involved in a job that involves them in the community for setting up for tournaments and other events. We often would get to watch the competitors after we are finished setting up and get to kick back for a little bit. The normal days working were fun too, we would often go out and make sure the rails are fixed up properly for people to hit, as well as making sure none of the landings were messed up. Overall, I had a great time working at Mountain Creek and would recommend it to a lot of other people.
Pros
Lenient hours, relaxed work schedule.
Cons
Pay could improve

- Whatever you'll ask from management, 99% you will not get it
- Your effort more likely will not be appreciated
- No money for living. Salary is a joke
- Dull management, poor culture

Loved my job but there was always drama and insecurities.
Senior Executive Assistant to CEO and COO (Current Employee) –  Vernon, NJJuly 16, 2018
Upper management made emotional and not thought out decisions. So many erupt decisions that cost the company thousands of dollars and eventually put the company in bankruptcy..
Pros
Co-workers that truly cared about each other, Long time friends were developed and will remain forever.
Cons
Insecurities and the constant drama, There were always rash decisions being made that were not thought out thoroughly, treatment of long term, committed employees was terrible, Letting complete strangers come and and totally control the company.

great bosses
Lifeguard (Current Employee) –  Vernon, NJJune 20, 2016
My time at Mountain Creek is one that will always be with me. A typical day there involves: hectic guest, long hours, cold water, short breaks, daily morning meetings with the bosses telling us some inspirational type things, and Spanish lifeguards from Spain that will speak about you in Spanish. Your co-workers will be either cool or annoying, The annoying ones are the ones that think they know everything, even though you worked there longer. Also there will be drama.But this job isn't terrible, you learn a lot such as sticking up for yourself and others and to have patients. You also learn some Spanish, so thats a bonus. Management id great because all of the bosses were once lifeguards and understand where we are coming from. They will always take your side if you are having an argument with a guest and they do look out for you. The bosses want the best for you; just be ready for audits like once a week and don`t brag that you haven`t been audited because they will audit you on the spot.
Pros
great bosses, great money
Cons
long days (10 am- 7pm), rude guest

Food and Beverage Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Vernon, NJJanuary 8, 2016
Mountain Creek presents both a lot of unique challenges and unique opportunities. Given the structure of the F & B department, the multiple food outlets allowed for opportunities to learn more and move up the department's "food chain".
