I worked at Sundance Resort (More than a year)
90% of the people I worked with were great people. My manager was excellent, always standing up for her employees to upper management and unruly customers. The lift pass is obviously the best perk of the job, as well as the discounts at the other facilities.
Upper management was, at times, unrealistic and ridiculous in what they expect and request of their employees. For example, when employee reviews happen, no one can get a perfect score on any skill because, according to them, there is always room for improvement. Also, since it was mostly a dead-end job to have while in college, coworkers don't always make it a priority, so switching shifts with someone can get frustrating when they decide to bail on you.
Advice to Management
Try doing the jobs of everyone under you. You'll get a better idea of what the resort actually needs and what it's doing well.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sundance Resort (Salt Lake City, UT) in March 2016.
I was pulled in to a tiny room with two very awkward HR employees and they asked me a few questions while staring at their clipboards the whole time. A lot of the questions were about the environment and my efforts to recycle and preserve natural resources. They hardly made any eye contact with me. Overall, it was a very uncomfortable experience.
