    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Keystone, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vail Resorts.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through VR job website.
    Received a screen interview from corporate recruiter.
    Was given wrong compensation information for position (by $22K!)
    Passed along for phone interview with hiring manager. Standard behavioral questions.
    Was called to do a face to face a day after the interview.
    Came in for a face to face - met with hiring manager and then department.
    The interview was very informal. No one had reviewed my resume before hand so questions were pretty simple - i.e. tell us about your experience, why do you want to work here... nothing that was challenging.
    Was offered the job the following week via phone call.

    Interviewer attire was mountain casual - jeans, button downs, snow boots. So keep that in mind when getting dressed - no suits! And if interviewing in the winter, you'll most likely be walking through snow so wear appropriate footwear.

    Negotiation Details
    They don't negotiate much beyond a thousand or two. They push the benefit of living in a mountain town and the once in a lifetime experience as offsetting a higher pay.

    phone interview, then face to face. they do a mandatory background check, no drug tests. seems like they aren't too picky when hiring for the winter as most people only work for 1 season anyway.

    Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The hiring process was easy for me; I had previously worked for this company as a contractor. I attended a testing session, to ensure that I could perform data entry duties. Initial interviews are typically conducted via phone or Skype. This season, the Talent Acquisition department seemed to hire a variety of people, from all different backgrounds. The leads for relevant departments learned as they went along. The system was in a constant state of change, because processes failed miserably. Though they did try to remedy past disorganization with SOPs (standard operating procedures), they quickly became obsolete, because the process changed almost daily.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vail, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vail, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Vail Resorts in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is when it all looks great. Moving to a ski town and working for the mountains managing company, didn't think it could be better. The interview process starts off on the company employment website. You must first create a career account to search job listings and openings with the company. Once one or more jobs are applied for you attach resume and answer short personality surveys. Completing all of the above will get you to the first cut down stage. At this point, you will be contacted by a Talent Acquisitions Manger who will start your employment process with a brief interview and searches for reasons not to approve you to advance in the process. This call will last between 15-30 minutes and is scheduled via Email communication. If approved by the talent aquisitions interviewer you will then be contacted by the hiring manager at the designated job you are looking to land. Once you are contactd by the hiring manager you will go through one phone interview (minimun) and one webcam interview (skype, facetime, ect.) the interviews are not recorded and neither party in held accountable to what is said and\or promised in the interview. If hired...you are on your own from there..find housing, secure it and be ready to go in mid November.
