I worked at Wintergreen Resort as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

It's a beautiful place to be for the summer, especially when surrounded by dozens of other wonderful interns your age! I met so many people from countries all over the world, and made lifelong friends. The perks of being an employee, free golf, discounted meals & access to the pool are great! I highly recommend a summer internship there!

Cons

The apartments aren't free unfortunately, but they are relatively clean and very close to work. The rules are strict sometimes and you have to be really careful about drinking since you are living on property.

Advice to Management

Keep treating the interns with respect and they will do just fine!

    I have been working at Wintergreen Resort full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Recreation Benefits, OK health Benefits, beautiful scenery

    Cons

    Salaries for majority below area average while other way above Wear and tear on car driving up and down mountain daily Lodging below par Restaurants expensive for service and quality of food Too concerned about bottom line profits to care about guests and employee satisfaction and same management for to many years

    Advice to Management

    Actions speak louder than words!!! For years the GM Hank Thiess has stated transparency is the most important part of the company but his actions say otherwise. In the event of any news that all associates should be informed about have all been learned from the news media. Then over a week later each time finally management says something and we also learn they knew days before the media knew. Respect your associates and not always try to cover yourself only with media relations.

    No one notices the hard work and effort you put in and hate change.

    Pros

    Free skiing Discounts in the stores and restaurants Decent benefits

    Cons

    Same senior leadership for 10+ years (it's not working) Fight tooth and nail against change Everything is outdated Customer service is nonexistent in upper management Employee appreciation is also through the window Too concerned about bottom line profits to care about guests and employee satisfaction Horrendous pay

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. It's not working. That's what other resorts do when they go bankrupt and get bought out, they clean house of all upper management. Stop placing the blame on everything else and start looking at yourselves.
