I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than a year)

Pros

work where you play able to move up quickly if you are financially able to stay with it - HIGH turnover rate creates open positions!

Cons

Areas of jobs tend to be of high real estate value (HIGH RENT) Pay is marginal to pathetic Most employees must work multiple jobs to pay for life expenses

Advice to Management

Retain the talented, key employees with higher pay so that they will stay longer than 1-2 years max before they have to move on in order to pay off college loans, start a family, etc. Seasonal employees can be payed low wages as they are generally looking to "escape reality" for a winter or year

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get a free ski pass You get mediocre benefits

    Cons

    You will never make what you're worth Your work load will only increase the longer you stay, yet you won't receive raises People rarely advance There is quite a bit of mismanagement The turn over rate is excessively high and, therefore, quality of work and efficiency are slim to none

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees. They are, after all, the legs you stand on.

    Pros

    Ski pass. Food discounts. If your lazy you got it made

    Cons

    Terrible management at certain lodge in Beaver Creek. Employees basically allowed to do whatever they want to on shift. Steal, take and sell drugs on the job, hide in closets, not perform their functions because they are too high. I was the oddball because I took pride in my job, was ethical, was sober, and cared for the company. Mgmt will deny it but i know management was aware of most of it. GM told me he doesnt hire for and rarely wants return employees. That is how he backed up the fact that many of the employees were as lazy as ive ever seen. Then Human Resources had no sympathy if you quit because you cannot handle the drug infested workplace. Human resources had no desire to counsel on career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Be a manager.
