    Pros

    I was apart of an amazing crew at Deer Valley. Everyone from our foreman, supervisors, and managers were very easy to get along with. As long as rules were followed and safety precautions were taken, fun was the name of the game. It really allowed us to provide a great experience to our guests.

    Cons

    There was a lack of comradery between other departments that worked on the mountain. No one like Ski School and Ski school did not like anyone else. Never understood why.

    Fun If You Land Under The Right Management

    May 12, 2022 - Server in Park City, UT
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great perks - season long ski pass, heated garage parking if you have a car, different living options, massive brand discounts (Smiths, Helly Hansen, North Face), meeting people from all over, having the resort as your playground, GREAT location in an area that has much to do and not far from SLC or Provo, great tips if you are a server - a very affluent community.

    Cons

    Can be the best time or worst time of your life depending on your manager/boss. Held two jobs at the same time for the resort and the difference between how others were treated on jobs was night and day. Ended up quitting one of the jobs due to terrible management and going full time in a position where management and work environment ended up feeling like life-long friends and family. Resort as a whole could be better about communicating with it's employees.
