    Awful!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Vail Resorts

    Pros

    Ski Pass with access to some awesome mountains but just think, that's only 650$. And they can't take it away if you buy it. Everyone reviews about great experiences in the mountains but, again, not something that can't be procured alone, and ski culture is amazing no thanks to Vail Resorts. Great for 6 months. Not long-term.

    Cons

    Discriminatory (Both sex and sexuality)
    Management is delusional.

    No formal training, from lift ops to table service.
    HR is worthless.
    They appreciate Visa workers more than non-visas
    No reward for flexibility
    VERY HARD TO ACHIEVE A STATUS THAT OFFER BENEFIT EVEN AFTER 2 YEARS
    No raises. Ever.
    Many of your co-workers either won't shower or won't speak English. Or both.
    Awful systems in place.
    Horrible business practices.
    Undeserving people get promoted (familyandfriends)
    Corporate bully attitude (work or leave)
    Too big, too fast
    Snow dictates moods from angry guests if there's a lack of snow, and the employees that can't enjoy it when it comes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your long-term staff. Give raises. Pay attention. Improve the 64 properties you have and stop buying the ones that consume the attention you only have for the company that existed only 3 years ago.

    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.
