Former Employee - Lift Operator in Vail, CO
Former Employee - Lift Operator in Vail, CO

I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Living and working in the mountains, laid back work environment, 4 day weeks, ski bum lifestyle, very straight forward, fun and active job, working outside and getting paid to exercise.

Cons

waking up early (duh) , kids that barely got high school degrees thought they were god's gift to the world because they worked there a little longer than you, pay sucked (as to be expected made $9.25), huge array of employees - some were awesome, some sucked, most were in between

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look at some of the employees with degrees that are looking to move up in the company and hire from within.

    Former Employee - Reservations Agent in Keystone, CO
    Former Employee - Reservations Agent in Keystone, CO

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -you get to live in a beautiful resort town, however you cannot afford it
    -you get a season's pass which management blocks out dates that their discretion and it honestly does not cost the company anything more than printing the card

    Cons

    -absolutely the worst leadership among upper management
    -work hard and no reward
    -near poverty pay
    -terrible commission structure for sales agents

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employee's, its not all about the bottom line. Its the employee's who make the company, resorts, and guest experience so appreciate them and pay them an acceptable living wage. Promotions within the company seem to be a pay cut with more responsibilities.
