I worked at Wintergreen Resort full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Awesome perks including free skiing and golf. An amazing place to go everyday. Your work is surrounded by one of earth's beautiful natural settings. Laid back, friendly team of people. Everyone gets along and truly become friends in and out of the workplace.

Cons

Very seasonal work. As a restaurant worker you really live or die by the season. It is a little removed from the closest town, so there can be a little bit of a commute through country, mountain roads to get to work

Advice to Management

A little better pay would most certainly help to attract qualified applicants that would be willing to stay on the job longer. There is a lot of turnover at the resort.

    I worked at Wintergreen Resort full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues and management,
    Valuable learning experience
    Free drinks during work hours and discounted food.
    Free use of the pool and gym, and discounts on various activities.

    Cons

    Sometimes scheduled to work on both of the days when transport to stores was available so had no way of getting to Waynesboro or Charlottesville to buy groceries or go to the post office.
    If you wanted a break, you had to ask for it,and on busy days you would work non-stop with no time to eat anything, which could result in feeling sick/dizzy.
