Some Real Pros and Some Really Big Cons

Snowboard Instructor (Current Employee)
Breckenridge, CO

I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSkiing at the area is a blast, and I made some wonderful friends.

ConsWhere do I start? I had to work forever to get my insurance - something like 750 hours. They barely cut you a break on the cost of your food. The management has a poor opinion of it's workers, stating, "If you don't like it, you can move on." Our way or the highway is pretty much the culture. They have some very poor managers who have very little experience and the culture is just a bunch of ski bums who made good. They have pathetic transportation to and from the area. A bunch of us would get on in the evenings and it was completely unsafe - we must have had 50 people too many. No parking close to the area, you have to take a bus. This one manager was such a jerk to everyone and a bunch of us complained and she's still employed. Such a joke. Nobody cares. Nobody listens. And my paycheck! Pathetic. Who can afford $9.00 per hour? Not this ski bum.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some great managers and remember that you are supposed to be a people organization. You could care less about us little people and it shows. If it weren't for the snow, I would never return.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
