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

    Pros

    Fun industry to work in. Top-shelf health benefits.

    Cons

    Some departments are productive and get results while others are a "revolving door" because of poor supervision and employees who only want to get Vail on their resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commitment to company goals felt a little shallow. Some people bought in and worked hard, while others gave it lip service and spent most of their day trying to be seen by senior management.

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

    Pros

    Season pass that is available to ALL Vail Resorts ski resorts and many other! Currently thats over 15 individual mountains!!!!
    Huge company that is great experience, fun environment, everyone here loves the ski industry

    Cons

    The pay is less than you would expect. Its obviously a trade off, but not big enough to make you not be interested in working here.
    Employee housing has 3 different tiers: horrible, not good and decent. Respectively these are called Sagebrush ($250 per month), Sunrise ($350 per month) and Tenderfoot ($450 per month). Sagebrush (has been condemned multiple times, is comparable to a dumpster and) is a shared 10 x 15 room with a small bunk bed, a small closet and toilet inside with a sink; there are ZERO kitchen capabilities. Sunrise is larger room at 15 x 20 with your own sink but has a shared kitchen and bathroom with a shower. Tenderfoot (where I lived) was decent with your own room, bed closet and dresser. It is essentially an apartment with a full kitchen, bathroom and living room (although its nothing fancy at all).
    Working at the resort level is different than corporate. I have worked in both, but the people at the individual resorts are more laid back and relaxed, which is not to say they are uptight at the corporate office, just more of a variety of people and management styles. Management at the individual resort level is more relaxed because you actually live on (or very, very close to) the mountain and everyone is in the "Skiing for Life" mentality and enjoys a more relaxed lifestyle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management cares and I dont think I met anyone in management that didnt or that I didnt feel was doing their job well. I met a few people who disagreed, but then again, they also always had a chip on their shoulder and a somewhat negative outlook on life.
