    SPA Concierge Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Vail Resorts (Vail, CO) in November 2008.

    Interview

    Applications are only accepted online which is kind of weird to me. It took my interviewer a few days to actually be able to commit to a time and date in which she could talk with me. This gave me a good impression that it was a very busy spa but at the same time made me hesitant about employee importance. The spa that I came from was very family oriented and Vail Resorts is very customer oriented. Don't get me wrong. They care about their employees but not before the customer. I just kept calling until I was able to come up with a time and date that worked for both of us - which I highly recommend for anyone else as well. Persistence is key.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Broomfield, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vail Resorts (Broomfield, CO) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online at Skijob1.com.
    Had a phone interview with HR to cover general interview questions.
    Interviewed face to face with a manager.
    Didn't get that job, but later was selected for an interview with another group (they do recycle resumes, something I haven't seen much in other companies).
    Received a job offer the next day.

    Overall, the questions were very basic, mostly consisting of questions to determine if I would work well with their group.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    None, it's take it or leave it (at least at the lower position levels)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vail Resorts (Broomfield, CO) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Long, like a couple weeks. For an entry level job, I thought it was a bit ridiculous. Overall the interview process was professional and seemed to be well thought out. I met with my immediate manager and the department manager.

    Visual Merchandising Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vail Resorts.

    Interview

    1 hour phone interview with some trick questions but also some positive and helpful feedback. Constant reminders to the fact that there were a lot of others applying for the job with potentially more experience and more impressive educational backgrounds. Definitely made me feel insecure at times, but a good learning experience non the less.

    VP-Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Vail Resorts (Denver, CO) in October 2013.

    Interview

    After applying online, I had a preliminary interview with a very perky HR person. Then, there were two additional phone interviews (CFO and one other person) and an office visit. It took them over a month to get back to me and I think that they did so only because I followed up aggressively. They said that they had a finalist for this position but it's not clear from other sources that they actually hired anyone.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. The CFO is very inexperienced and comes across as such if you've had exposure to other public company CFOs. And, he's also not compensated well for his position compared to peers in comparably sized companies. The people are really nice but this is not a mature company. HR seemed to talk more about their values in developing and leading talent than other execs do.   1 Answer

    IT Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Vail Resorts (Broomfield, CO) in March 2014.

    Interview

    2 x 1 hour phone interviews with HR and hiring manager
    4.5 hours onsite interviews => 4 sessions - 3 analysts, 4 developers, hiring manager, IT Director

    Interview Questions

    • None. Typical techno-functional questions. Although in retrospect, I was asked my approach/opinion to their 'mini' HCM upgrade and politely disagreed with their questionable methodology. Perhaps this is what warranted their final decision => 'The consensus was that you’re quite a bit more experienced technically than what this job would require and that it’s probably not the best fit at this point in time.'   1 Answer
