I worked at Wintergreen Resort as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

It's a beautiful place to be for the summer, especially when surrounded by dozens of other wonderful interns your age! I met so many people from countries all over the world, and made lifelong friends. The perks of being an employee, free golf, discounted meals & access to the pool are great! I highly recommend a summer internship there!

Cons

The apartments aren't free unfortunately, but they are relatively clean and very close to work. The rules are strict sometimes and you have to be really careful about drinking since you are living on property.

Advice to Management

Keep treating the interns with respect and they will do just fine!

    I have been working at Wintergreen Resort full-time

    Pros

    Some pros are the amenities that come with the job, such as free skiing and able to use the spa and fitness center for free. Also resort discounts are nice.

    Cons

    Hours aren't great and good luck getting the weekend off. Plus gas is crazy having to drive up the mountain every day.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very closed minded and not up to date. They are not willing to change. Also I've noticed there is a lot of favoritism in most departments. This will influence raises and promotions. The management is driving that place into the ground.

    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.
