    I worked at Okemo Mountain Resort part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, and an overall great working environment. I worked at Okemo Mountain Resort every winter from 2008-2012 and it was an enjoyable experience every time.

    Cons

    The hours can be demanding, and some managers are very belittling. Management just kind of throws you where ever is needed.

  5.  

    A fair place to work but is another vortex of seasonal chaos found in a resort setting.

    Former Employee - Restaurant Manager in Ludlow, VT

    I worked at Okemo Mountain Resort

    Pros

    Ski pass if you happen to ski
    Food discount
    clean and safe environment

    Cons

    Career advancement requires leaving company.
    Middle management is frequently seasonal and under-compensated in winter and then laid off in the summer.
    Heavy reliance on foreign workers that are new every year leaving you retraining every season and the other woes of constantly hiring new staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create better employment structure and training methods to ensure staff is either employed year round, or provide incentives that attract employees to return.
