    Current Employee - Child Care Teacher in Park City, UT
    Current Employee - Child Care Teacher in Park City, UT

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free ski pass, beautiful view, laid back environment, free lunch, variety of children and ages (6 weeks-6 years), sliding down a snowy hill with the kids and riding the gondola. Babysitting for guests at night or on your days off pays very well.

    Cons

    Working weekends and holiday, $10.50/hr, on-call sometimes, getting over-time hrs is very rare, getting sick (around kids)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They're wonderful and really care. Communication between employee and management is always key.

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free season passes and fun people to work with. For your first few years moving up is easy if you will work hard and show up on time and sober.

    Cons

    Hard to get in to upper managment, there is a good old boys network that is very tight and some depaartment managers whom dont pull their weight seem to skate by due to friendships in senior managment and lack of knolodge in senior managment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rember, to some this is a carreer not just a job for a pass.

    Pros

    -free pass
    -GREAT co-workers
    -AWESOME management
    -pretty sweet discounts
    -jobs are fun

    Cons

    -everybody gets paid really low wages. even my bosses. its bummer because we are operating multi million dollar equipment, and have peoples lives in our hands....
    Its certainly alot more responsibility than working in a kitchen (my previous job) and the kitchen pays more.
    you would think, considering the amount of money that Vail Resorts rakes in a year...that they would spread some of that love on to the people that make them that money...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ...just pay us more...
    its that simple...
    ...and "we have a budget" seems to me as if you dont care enough to talk to the big wigs...your bosses, and tell them how it is.

    Pros

    Good co-workers, good pay and benefits. Meet people from all over the world.

    Cons

    upper management is out of touch and always on your back. Skills and experience are not appreciated. Treated poorly. Management lies to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to do their job without your negative remarks to them. This causes low moral among the employees. When a upper boss uses foul language with you for no good cause and is demeaning to an employee this is not professional or called for. Glad to be gone just because of the upper management. Lower management has a great turn over because of these things.
