I worked at Shambhala Mountain Center full-time (More than a year)
Beautiful environment, wonderful place to learn a new culture and way of life, decent food, opportunity to really change your life through hard work.
The housing is awful. Mice infested everything. Accomodating medical needs is improbable. Only for the physically and mentally strong.
Advice to Management
Please do not hire anyone without a thorough mental and physical evaluation.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shambhala Mountain Center (Red Feather Lakes, CO) in January 2013.
The application process went smoothly. The interview went smoothly. The interviewer was pleasant and personable. However, I was told the position I applied for was not open and would not be coming open. From what the interviewer told me, they advertised the position with full knowledge the position was not, and would not, be available. (They had an opening for an IT Manager but not Assistant IT Manager, yet they advertised them both).
Reasons for Declining
It wasn't a formal offer, but the interviewer wanted me to consider a different position within the organization and get back with them. I definitely had the feeling I could've gotten the position. However, I didn't feel it was a fit for me and I also felt deceived regarding their hiring practices so I emailed and told the interviewer I was not interested.
