Great Perks, Low Pay

I have been working at Vail Resorts

Pros

They offer free season pass, great discounts, fun coworkers. It is a beautiful place to live and an incredible place to ski and snowboard.

Cons

The pay doesn't support how expensive it is to live in summit county. I would love to make it a career but the pay is not enough

    Pros

    ski pass, fun co workers, great area to live in, benefits

    Cons

    pay is terrible, company doesn't care if you stay or go, everyone is replaceable.

    No chance to move up, all the bosses are old ladies that have work in the same office for 20+ years. Promotions are there but you get a rise of about 25 cents and your workload will triple.

    Advice to Management

    build long term, invest in your employees instead of just replacing the entire office every season. If you actually paid your year round employees a competitive amount they wouldn't be constantly leaving and you wouldn't be replacing them with fill in random people.

    Pros

    During my tenure '99-'07 the Corporate Office was located in Avon and being able to work for a publically traded professional organization and live in the mountains was a great opportunity. During this time Vail Resorts grew significantly and it was exciting to be part of that work.

    Cons

    In the aftermath of 9/11 the tourism sector took a major hit and it was hard to see the impact that had on the employees in the communities that survive on the tourism business. Vail Resorts had to make some unpopular decisions during this time and it was difficult to see the impact at a personal level.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the mountain communities and employees that are the soul of the company.
