    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Epic pass at no cost to the employee. You can get the hours if you're willing to work.

    Cons

    A Walmart type atmosphere. CEO seems disillusioned with what Vail resorts is about. Bad pay scale. It's a business, they dot hide that and they're certain that that I your number 1 priority. Not safety, not customer experience, business. Management has little to no field experience.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they could actually have good ideas on how business could improve with customer satisfaction.


  2. "Living in Vail makes up for the minimal appreciation of the staff."

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

    Pros

    Living in vail makes up for most of the negatives. The people and culture is fun. There is always something to do. It is also relatively easy to get hired as there are always so many positions opening up.

    Cons

    There is not an overwhelming feeling that upper management cares for the staff. It is as the revolving door of employees is not only expected but preferred to keep salaries low.

    Advice to Management

    Treating the employees better and increasing salaries will promote better employees and job satisfaction
