Directors expect managers to be better than their predecessor, but that shouldn't be the standard, as they probably have less experience within the company. Have one on ones with Managers if you want real questions and real answers. Round table discussion are too formal to have a real conversation.

What is the vacation policy like at Vail Resorts? How many vacation days do you get per year?

Managers get PTO/FTO, but generally only get time off for extreme emergencies and in between seasons. Most employees are pressured into working even when they request time off,especially managers.
