    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 is willing to give to its employees is absurd considering how much money they're making off them (through salaried workers working 50+ hour weeks and getting paid for 40 / increasing the already absurdly high employee housing rates every chance you get while not increasing pay)

    I worked at Aspen Skiing Company part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    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

    It could be hard to get hours on occasion, but I was still compensated better than any of the friends I had who worked at other resorts.

    Beautiful area; great people to work with.

    Be sure to check your paycheck. Managers will remove hours from your paycheck-on purpose. Do not EVER speak positive
