“It is not equal to all employees”
“Very high deductible and state ACA insurance is much better and cheaper. Change your ways Vail. Support employees!”
“Only applicable after 1 year on the job. Knowing most employees don't stay a year, it lacks support for the employee. ”
Cheap benefits for housing. I loved employee housing at Breckenridge only reason I could afford to live there. Ski pass is so worth it
The discount perks for VRR were fantastic! As a salaried employee, you receive flexible time off and a Ski Pass.
Vacation time for managers is unlimited (with manager approval)
Great benefits package overall for our family of four.
Best: unlimited time off for salaried positions, great medical, 401k match
The company expects a lot of their leadership and staff, yet the benefits are not acceptable for the work expectation. Throwing money at programs, but not enforcing management support the programs is only printing in media that the company cares, but does the opposite for the employees. The company skirts so many laws by saying Employees are Farmers, and the company is in the business of Agriculture. The company does not pay their largest workforce, International Employees, the state minimum wages. They pay them the federal minimum wage. Yet they rely on that community to cover 75% of the positions in the company. There is very little support given to the front-line employees, and if you disagree with a decision, it is fast out the door. Saying you offer benefits is not actual truthful. You have to work 700 Hours before those kick in. For most employees, that never happens in a season. So they are expected to live on MediCare or State Supplemental insurance. The insurance the company does offer has high deductibles which are equal to two months' salary. In an industry where getting injured is almost certain at some point, the benefits should reflect that. They should also reflect the amount of profit the company makes each year on the backs of the front line employees.
Best - employee perks @ the mtn
Medical benefits are great for prescriptions but less good for medical care.
You get free lift tickets and a discount lunch but that's about it
Vail does not look after its seasonal employees
