    Interview

    Applied for SkiCo on the Aspen Snowmass company website. Several days later, I heard back from the guest services supervisor. Because I was out of state, he attached several questions relating to my customer service experience in those initial emails. After answering the questions, I had a skype interview, after which I accepted a position in the guest service department.

    Ski Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Aspen, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aspen Skiing Company (Aspen, CO) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process was more "intense" than I would have initially thought. I filled out an online application a few days before a local job fair. Having already completed the application, I was streamlined to the one-on-one interview portion of the process. That conversation lasted about 45 minutes, discussing my educational background, any teaching background I had, my level of experience working with kids (I was interviewing to teach skiing in one of the children programs), my proficiency in the sport, and generally gauging my personality. There were a few curve-ball questions regarding safety as the top priority, followed by fun and learning. In order to complete the process, I had to obtain three letters of recommendation to submit to the program coordinator (who, as it happened, was also the interviewer -- an aspect of the process that I liked and respected). A few weeks later, I received an e-mail offering me the job.

    Negotiation

    There are no real negotiation phases in the process. You are offered a part-time position with a base salary that is pre-determined by your qualifications. If you do not have any certifications from PSIA and do not have any previous experience instructing with the company, then you receive a job offer that pays $11/hour. No negotiations. That being said, if you go ahead and acquire your first level of certification from PSIA, you'll receive a pay raise, no questions asked. Also, after you've accumulated 75 hours of teaching hours with the company, you'll receive another pay raise. So even though the initial offer does not yield to negotiation, there is a clear path toward advancement.
