  • It's a ski resort, and it feels like working at a ski resort.

    Pros

    Ski pass, obviously. The skiing is some of the best you'll find anywhere, and the scenery is hard to beat. Lots of fun people come on board to work here seasonally.

    Cons

    The buildings/offices are basically dungeons. The vibe of the resort base area, locals and resort clientele isn't for everyone. There are a lot of egos (but a lot of rad folks who really know how to rip, too). The tram reeks like B.O., puke and cheap whiskey and is claustrophobic hell but people still seem to love it. It's not your charming, old-fashioned resort, like Alta or Brighton.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent when you've got it and find ways to put that talent to use. After every season you lose smart, enthusiastic people because you can't quite figure out how to increase their roles, responsibilities, recognition, pay, etc. Wasted potential.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Snowbird (Salt Lake City, UT) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Talked over the phone then met in person at their corporate office in Cottonwood. The next few days I met with the Manager at the Aerie. We went over the basics of wine and what is expected. Then he asked me three drinks with no attempt to test my baseline knowledge. I didn't know one of the drinks and then he tried to push me into serving. A ploy to get more servers, it was a complete waste of time.
