Great company & owners. Very diverse staff
Employee (Current Employee) –  Vail, COSeptember 4, 2017
I currently work at the Sonnenalp and have been for 4 years. It's a great sign when a hotel in a tourist area can keep staff for many years. The hotel is rated the best in the Vail area and thus standards are very high, so sometimes work can be stressful in maintaining the high standards. But I wouldn't want it any other way; it's nice to work for the best. There are employees from all over the world working here, so it's a great way to meet diverse people.
Pros
Free lunch, great perks and benefits
Cons
long days sometimes

Beautiful Hotel
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) –  Vail, COMay 24, 2017
This is a beautiful hotel. Celebrities have been known to stay there. As a front desk agent it was tough because being a nice hotel, you get the people who are unhappy with their room. They yell at you when its not your fault. That was hard.

Advancement difficult, great learning opp
Night Audit (Former Employee) –  Vail, ColoradoJune 21, 2011
This is a great company to learn wonderful guest service and hospitality management. It is difficult to advance in any department as J1 visas are brought in and often offered the jobs. Transfers to other departments were always difficult as well as the J1 visa students had to move every 3-4 months so they did want want to need to train additional hands.
It can be a good experience, however it is good to move on after a year as you can make more money and advance at other properties.
Pros
excellent reputation in hospitality, great training in certain departments, world wide staff
Cons
lower than average pay, difficult to advance, difficult to transfer departments, very dated uniforms, world wide staff
