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

    Pros

    You get to work in a beautiful mountain retreat center, take programs, and be part of an intentional community where there are group times for meditation and helpful talks on mindfulness as part of your daily life. The guests here have powerful and transformative experiences and you can be a part of making that possible.

    Cons

    Living at the retreat center can be difficult due to weather, inter-personal dynamics and the general work drama associated with disorganization and lack of planning. Some people are just there to lay low. Not a high level of professionalism. Doesn't look great on a resume afterwards.

    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 day - interviewed 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).

    • 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.
