    I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    free ski pass, and coffee

    Cons

    Poor management, they are clueless about lower level operations. They promote the laziest people who kiss the most butt. Their turnover is super high, over 70% in the last year. HR is worthless. If you are a yes-man and like being overworked and underpaid, -this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some competent open minded managers that don't discriminate against employees based on your sex.

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ski every day, for free! As a ski instructor, you get paid to show others the passion that you have for skiing. What could be better than that? Maybe only a surfing instructor.

    Cons

    Vail Resorts acts like the large corporation that it is, so you are just another cog in their wheel making them money. They didn't seem to care about the peons at the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees more like your customers, and people will stay with you for life!
