I worked at Vail Resorts part-time for more than a year

Pros

Vail resorts pays their instructors very well, with incremental increases for experience, teaching in another language, returning students, and returning students requesting the same instructor.

Cons

The only cons I ran across had to do with individual students or classes and not to do with the resort or management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you do. Treat instructors well.

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, great training, fantastic perks

    Cons

    Minimal benefits for seasonal workers, party atmosphere is not for everyone, low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes our service was not great because employees were so inexperienced. If you give workers more incentive to stay on more than a couple seasons, the quality of customer service would increase drastically and mistakes would be much lower.

    I have been working at Vail Resorts part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Awesome job for the summer, down time nice (dial-a-ride), reasonable pay for work, great people (coworkers & guests), consistent

    Cons

    Upward movement difficult. Regular shifts (fixed-route) get tedious fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage/ prepare for transitions better through rewards, mentorship, recognition, compensation, and rotational training. Identify champions and early adapters and utilize. Take employees suggestions seriously
