    I worked at Vail Resorts part-time

    Pros

    Free ski pass, discounted friends and family passes, discounted rates around/on the mountain, team culture

    Cons

    Low base salary for starting employees, over time the benefits for part time employees went downhill, the new heli hanson jackets were not as warm as the old DNA jackets.


  2. "Awful!"

    Pros

    Ski Pass with access to some awesome mountains but just think, that's only 650$. And they can't take it away if you buy it. Everyone reviews about great experiences in the mountains but, again, not something that can't be procured alone, and ski culture is amazing no thanks to Vail Resorts. Great for 6 months. Not long-term.

    Cons

    Discriminatory (Both sex and sexuality)
    Management is delusional.

    No formal training, from lift ops to table service.
    HR is worthless.
    They appreciate Visa workers more than non-visas
    No reward for flexibility
    VERY HARD TO ACHIEVE A STATUS THAT OFFER BENEFIT EVEN AFTER 2 YEARS
    No raises. Ever.
    Many of your co-workers either won't shower or won't speak English. Or both.
    Awful systems in place.
    Horrible business practices.
    Undeserving people get promoted (familyandfriends)
    Corporate bully attitude (work or leave)
    Too big, too fast
    Snow dictates moods from angry guests if there's a lack of snow, and the employees that can't enjoy it when it comes.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your long-term staff. Give raises. Pay attention. Improve the 64 properties you have and stop buying the ones that consume the attention you only have for the company that existed only 3 years ago.
