Mission: At Vail Resorts, our mission is simple – to create the Experience of a Lifetime for our employees, so they can in turn, provide the Experience of a Lifetime for our guests.
Vail Resorts is dedicated to delivering extraordinary guest experiences by ...
I have been working at Vail Resorts part-time (More than 5 years)
Vail is a great employer, Park City has a super Ski and Snowboard School staff, the interest in guest and employee success is genuine.
Supervisors are not yet able to use communication technologies that would greatly simplify the daily juggling act of assigning teachers to the classes/clients most appropriate to the needs of the guests (and the smooth running of the school).
Advice to Management
Invest in Wifi tablets and software that connects the supervisors to each other and main ticket office. Make greater use of the professional skills (aside from teaching) found among the staff who have advanced abilities in areas that could help strengthen school's performance. There are men and women in the ski school whose non-snow careers are world-class in many areas that overlap with the needs of the resort...diamonds in the backyard, as it were.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Vail Resorts in March 2017.
Contacted me by email instructing my to take an online recorded interview. Your allowed to re-record your intro as many times as you want, but when the questions come you only have one shot. But you can take an hour to think of an answer then record (unlimited time).
I was then invited for an in person interview. I was put in this weird 5x5 room with a big window and one glass wall, kinda felt like a fish tank.
The interview was very informal, he didn't have questions written down nor did he write down my answers. Typical questions about the position you apply for (read the position advertisement to study up).
I asked how often interns get offered a permanent position... He said never... You have to then reapply for different positions once the internship is up (the internships just a networking opportunity). I wasn't too thrilled with that so I decided not to continue the interview process.
