    I have been working at Shambhala Mountain Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Staff here can learn a lot on the job. Some of the pros and cons somewhat play off of each other. SMC gets a lot of people from varying backgrounds and that provides the opportunity to be able to work with difficult situations. I've always said, if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. The work environment is gorgeous; many days of sunshine help! There is a very strong community that supports each other in many ways. There are educational opportunities constantly.

    Cons

    Being at SMC is a challenging endeavor. Because staff work and live together, that brings potential for drama. A lot of staff come on board with ones own preconceived idea of how things should be. People come thinking it's going to be utopia, but it's not. Work can be stressful. Relationships can be good one day and bad the other. Weather can be challenging if one is from warmer climates (though the winter is milder than say in the midwest). Also, the housing is rustic and needing updating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop keeping staff on board who do not fit.

    Assistant IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Red Feather Lakes, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Red Feather Lakes, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Shambhala Mountain Center in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The application process went smoothly. The interview went smoothly. The interviewer was pleasant and personable. However, I was told the position I applied for was not open and would not be coming open. From what the interviewer told me, they advertised the position with full knowledge the position was not, and would not, be available. (They had an opening for an IT Manager but not Assistant IT Manager, yet they advertised them both).

    Interview Questions
    • To paraphrase: "I believe your experience is light for the IT Manager position, but would you like me to put you through to the next step for the IT Manager position, a technical interview?"   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    It wasn't a formal offer, but the interviewer wanted me to consider a different position within the organization and get back with them. I definitely had the feeling I could've gotten the position. However, I didn't feel it was a fit for me and I also felt deceived regarding their hiring practices so I emailed and told the interviewer I was not interested.
