Pros

Ski every day, for free! As a ski instructor, you get paid to show others the passion that you have for skiing. What could be better than that? Maybe only a surfing instructor.

Cons

Vail Resorts acts like the large corporation that it is, so you are just another cog in their wheel making them money. They didn't seem to care about the peons at the bottom.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees more like your customers, and people will stay with you for life!

    Pros

    The beautiful environment of working and living in the mountains. An annual ski season pass and discount coupons for friends and family. Employee housing when available.

    Cons

    They get very cheap labor from many highly educated college graduates for menial jobs and imply that advancement is possible. Doesn't happen.

    Advice to Management

    Use the talents of your college educated employees who take any job available to live and work in a culture they love, and let them grow. They could be your greatest assets if you let them.

    Pros

    free ski pass, and coffee

    Cons

    Poor management, they are clueless about lower level operations. They promote the laziest people who kiss the most butt. Their turnover is super high, over 70% in the last year. HR is worthless. If you are a yes-man and like being overworked and underpaid, -this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some competent open minded managers that don't discriminate against employees based on your sex.
