    I worked at Aspen Skiing Company part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed the aspect of living in such a controlled, easy to understand environment. Moving there, training, employee housings, guaranteed hours made it simple and fun for an 18 year old who took a semester off.

    Cons

    Employee housing can be hit or miss. I enjoyed the amount of cannabis around but it should be considered when making a decision.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with a little respect and it would go a long way to retain employees. Instead of having to hire temps and pay them $2.50-3.50/hr more than what you've been paying the people that have been here the whole season, if you appreciated the employees you have a little more you wouldn't have to hire the temps. There is absolutely no employee satisfaction at this job and the lack of assistance the ski company...

      I worked at Aspen Skiing Company part-time for more than 6 years

      I look back on my time at SkiCo with incredibly fond memories. The pay is good, you'll make friends for life, you'll spend time outdoors. It's so awesome.

      Cons
