    I worked at Deer Valley Resort part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food, Park city is beautiful, Free reliable buses

    Cons

    Employee Housing was a huge lie to me it was just a 80s motel packed to the brim with people, Non-English speaking coworkers from out of country, management didnt care, housing didnt care. My heater went out twice during the negative degree weather and they took a week and a half to fix it the first time and 2 weeks the second...

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care
    When someone gets injured on the job and is told not to work for a week by a doctor dont give them 2 days off and threaten to let them go.

    Pros

    They did a lot of workshops to learn from the pros. I got lots of perks, such as ski passes to DV to ski on my off days and for friends and family. They have a nice set up for employees including lockers to store your equipment. There is consistent work and lots of clients.

    Cons

    It is a physically demanding job.
