    I worked at Beaver Run Resort part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent work/ life balance. All of the staff members are very friendly and work together as a team. It is not uncommon to find all of the employees from different areas within the company hanging out together after work. Management cares about your opinions and treats you as an equal.

    Cons

    In the summer months, shifts are much more scare.

    Pros

    I love all of my co workers. Really fun people to work with. Good money because it is always very busy with the location being right at the bottom of the mountain/beaver run chair lift.

    Cons

    It can be stressful with all of the tourists that have never been there before asking so many questions. The amount of people in the restaurant at once can be over-whelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management...keep up the positive vibes.

    Fun, family oriented work environment

    I have been working at Beaver Run Resort full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best part about working at Beaver Run is the people. It feels like a family oriented environment and we are allowed to have fun while we work! My ski-in/ski-out office is pretty ideal for those powder day lunch breaks and the property is so large, that I get plenty of exercise cruising around. There are always nice guests to help, or just chat with and I have made life-long friends. They also encourage work-life balance as a core value.

    Cons

    There aren't too many opportunities to excel professionally and sometimes the parking can be annoying, as in the winter months there are periods where hourly employees aren't allowed to park on property.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider having more all-employee meetings discussing employee relations and a higher level incentive program.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, good management, strong family feeling among employees, fun loving guests and owners, we are right next to the ski lift if we decide to ski on our lunch break.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover, food is expensive, sometimes parking can be tricky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great "family" feeling and keep it fun! I would suggest bringing up more employee relations at the all-employee meetings.

    Pros

    Right at the based of Peak 9, was able to go skiing during my lunch breaks.

    Cons

    Since Beaver Run is a smaller company there are less opportunities to move up within the company.

    The pay is lower than other hotels around the area, but it could be a fun place to work.

    I worked at Beaver Run Resort

    Pros

    It's a good place to work if you want to do some work and travel, and your priority is to ski or snowboard. It's also a good place to work at if you are doing an internship.

    Cons

    The pay compared to other hotels in the area is very low. Very few times the correct person for the job gets promoted or hired and instead people get promoted because of friendships and not necessarily their qualifications. Managers are oblivious to the huge gap in pay between themselves and lower level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to listen to your employees, and perhaps have company wide anonymous surveys where employees can voice their opinion. And remember that a happy employee will provide better value to the company in the long run.

    I have been working at Beaver Run Resort

    Pros

    Resort lifestyle is respected here, snowboard all day and work all night. Lots of room for growth as the town is transist, can move up quickly. Some other perks are sister hotels. Good benefits package too.

    Cons

    Working in a small cold resort town. The only work here is in the resort ski industry. No real complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the lower employee's more responsibility. The place needs to be upgraded. But overall, the management is pretty good to it's employee's.
