I worked at Aspen Skiing Company part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

This was a tremendous position to take after college and meeting tons of new people. The rookie class is a wonderful dynamic that you carry with you. The benefits that they offer are incredible. Living in ASC housing isn't the best, but you can certainly make-do if that is your only option.

Cons

It's tough to break-in with some of the Veterans that dominate the "priority" on the lineup, but be confident and stand your ground as a committed pro with a desire to improve and gain more experience.

    I have been working at Aspen Skiing Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent managerial pay, benefits, work environment and company-wide culture.

    Cons

    The rental/retail department is led by individuals who apply a great deal of favoritism and execute decisions based on here-say, and conjecture. They rarely confront their store managers in an honest and direct manner, and even more rarely provide positive feedback or give acknowledgement of excellent performance. There are numerous other problems in the department that seem to persist.

    Advice to Management

    Company leadership and ownership needs to place a critical eye on the upper management in the rental/retail department. There are and have been things going on for a long time that do not support or compliment the overall company culture. Please note that this is a critique of one department and not the entirety of Aspen Skiing Co.
