    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Vail Resorts (Breckenridge, CO) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview was scheduled during close family members funeral. (tragic unexpected death) After I repeatedly requested otherwise. When I took the phone call, there was no genuine tone to the conversation. Very black and white. In retrospect this should have been my red flag for taking a job that turned out to be a huge mistake. After hearing about other people applying and interviewing with Vail, I'm not surprised all at how they treated me.

    Interview Questions

    • How many people I could manage, how I would do it effectively.
