Great experience to learn how big businesses operate
Corporate (Current Employee) –  Broomfield, COFebruary 13, 2019
I learned so much working here. I feel as if there's room for advancement if you're willing to stand out and reach for it- as with any job. Compensation needs improvement for sure. Overall, culture is nice, pretty professional place. Met some awesome people worldwide. Management might sometimes treat you as if you don't matter as much as you'd like, some things can be chaotic, especially during ram-up. Expect to work a boat load during ramp-up and ramp-down.

Productive and fun workplace with the mountain as my backyard
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Keystone, COFebruary 6, 2019
Keystone was a very fun company to work for. It had great benefits to offer since your working for a resort which includes free ski pass and half priced food from the cafes/restaurants. Also gave a very good opportunity to work and help guest in the fact of getting there lost belongings and children back

Ski for free--if you have a trust fund
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Park City, UTFebruary 5, 2019
Well you will have lots of people working with you that are in the same circumstances. Ski towns are expensive, expect to have two jobs just to pay rent. That is if you can find a place to live.

How do they expect to find good help at$11 an hour ?
Pros
Ski for free
Cons
you are a drone

Only a good job for ski bums who dont care about how a buisnes runs or treats it employees
Vacation Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Breckenridge, COFebruary 4, 2019
Overall Vail can be a good place to work at but the amount of incompetence on the managerial side causes a lot confusion and disarray. They have employee housing which can be best summed up as a college dorm with no supervision and excessive amounts of people being forced into very small rooms.
Pros
Free ski pass and mountain perks
Cons
Having to work under a tyrannical ceo

Too Corporate
Human Resources Administrator (Former Employee) –  Vail, COFebruary 4, 2019
The idea of ski and family culture is long gone in this capitalistic corporate giant. It's all about the money and a lot less about the employee. Forget trying to live anywhere near work for a reasonable price bases on starting pay rates.
Pros
Free ski pass
Cons
Impossible to survive on what they pay

A company who does not care about their long term employees
Driver (Former Employee) –  Keystone, COFebruary 1, 2019
I spent over a decade at Keystone Resort. At no time was I properly compensated for my skill set or work level. Their idea of compensation is a free ski pass. I have a bad back and never learned to ski, so it was a completely useless compensation method for individuals such as myself. The only way to improve those things is to put yourself out on a limb by "complaining" about these things. All that does is single you out, while they "listen" to your complaints and then do nothing about it.

Free snowboarding with this job
Housekeeper (Current Employee) –  Keystone, COJanuary 3, 2019
Employee housing available but you live and work at the same place so your never away from work. It's cold if you don't snowboard it's not worth it. Customer service
Pros
Discount lunch, ski pass, low rent
Cons
Bad management, too much work, dirty

Fun for winters
Advanced Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Telluride, CODecember 27, 2018
Typical day involves opening the store, catering to customer needs, selling, selling, selling, and renting gear. I learned a lot about customer relations and management. Workplace culture really depends on what shop you are located at. Some shops have great employees and everyone is always having fun, other shops have really boring atmospheres. The hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult customers and trying to figure out where you will work during the summers and off-seasons.. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you are placed with a great team and everyone has each others backs.
Pros
Ski breaks, friendly people, positive culture, benefits
Cons
Competitive employees can get nasty
