    Non-certified Child Care Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vail Resorts in September 2016.

    Interview

    Got a call to schedule an interview. Was sent an email and followed the link to schedule. The interviewer called about 5 minutes before the interview was scheduled, but I was waiting on the call. I completed the phone interview, which was a typical phone interview (Why do you want to work here? What experience do you have?). I was told I would here something in 7-10 days. 20 minutes later I got a call about an interview. I informed the lady on the other end that I had just completed an interview and she explained that this was a follow-up interview. She very rudely asked if I wanted to complete the interview or not. I said yes and was informed that they require a Skype interview. I told her that I was unable to do a Skype interview and she said, "Okay, we'll cancel your application," and hung up. I wasted time filling out the application and completing the phone interview, just to have my application cancelled because I live in the boonies and don't have reliable internet access.

    Senior Manager Talent Role Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vail Resorts (Broomfield, CO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone screen and that same week was scheduled for a phone interview with an executive. A week later I had to reach out to the recruiter which I never have had to in my 20 year career. She never responded. Now I have no interest in the company. I am glad I had the poor candidate experience before it turned into a poor employee experience.
