    Pros

    I worked at Jack Frost, which is a separate mountain from Big Boulder, but owned by the same parent company. I loved working with all of my coworkers, and we all loved working there because management was very good. There are a lot of younger people working there who don't really appreciate the job, but most everyone across the mountain in all departments is very satisfied. They rehire most of their seasonal employees every year with VERY low turnover, and that's saying a lot for the area. And I really enjoyed the fact that it was a day job and ONLY a day job. The mountain closed at 4pm every day, so it made planning easy.

    The pay was fair, I only worked for minimum wage but I was also just a cashier and it's fair for the area. My manager in particular was VERY responsive to employee needs, and this included everything from time off to scheduling to lunch breaks to pretty much anything else, even down to what specific spot you worked (i.e. main registers, tubing, ski school).

    Perhaps the most important thing that I LOVED about JFBB is that they will support the employee when customers start having major problems. A lot of people will try to weasel money out of the resort, and as an employee it frustrates me to no end when people try to cheat the system and, when I let them know that I can't allow it because of the rules in place, they start screaming obscenities at me. Jack Frost, while very receptive to their customers, won't let them get away with murder. It made me proud to work for them instead of feeling like the rules we set in place meant nothing when I tried to enforce them.

    Cons

    The transactions are rather large, and often in cash, so it's hard to keep track of everything sometimes. You have to work when it's cold, so it's not a job for someone that's not good at dealing with winter...... I think that's all I can really think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! I mean, you guys obviously know how to run a tight ship with a happy employees, so make sure it stays that way!
