    Fun atmosphere, great people. It's a ski resort, how can you not like it!?!?

    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 Management

    ...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.


  6. Fun job for short period of time with awesome winter/summer recreational benefits.

    Pros

    I really liked all of the people I worked with. Because so many people want to work in Park City, the resorts can be picky in who they hire. They provide ample training for all jobs and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Employees seem really undervalued. Everybody is paid ridiculously low wages for what they are doing. In my case, I was given a different title and wage than promised and ended up leaving the company.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the upper management seems intimidating but is actually really cool. My advice, if you decide to work at Canyons, is to have fun at your job.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Fun job and good people to work with.

    Cons

    Very low pay and the hours make it difficult to work a second job.

    Advice to Management

    Guides need more money. Many guides love the job but can't afford to stay.

    Pros

    Great health insurance options for full time employees

    Cons

    Everything else! Once Vail Resorts purchased Canyons Resort we lost lots of previous discounts, our pay scale is changing, longtime supervisors were replaced with people that were never seen or accessible.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like humans instead of just another number!
