    I worked at Mammoth Mountain full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of time to ride, most employees are friendly, Eastern Sierras are so diverse winter and summer!

    Cons

    Management tends to not listen to their employees and loses sight of the people that work the hardest for the betterment of the whole mountain! Management plays favorites games rely on word of mouth gossip to make important decisions ! Mammoth University a joke!

    Advice to Management

    Listen and better reward the people that clearly put their heart and soul into the company!

    Pros

    As with any big company, you'll get some complaining about one thing or another, but I've always really enjoyed working for Mammoth. I've worked in a few different departments and while all have their "quirks" and things that require a little more patience and good humor, they all also have great people who are doing what they love in a place they love to be, and for most people and situations, that's what shines by far the most.

    Cons

    It's not necessarily the tightest run ship (which has both pluses and minuses - I think overall a plus, as I like the down to earth attitude and approach more than I miss the rigid structure), and does get its share of bureaucracy and office politics and gossip and whatnot. People complain about the pay (generally hovering as close to minimum wage as possible without looking like they're not trying at all to be more), but I always figure you know what you're signing up for when you sign up for it so...why are you complaining? Shut up and go ski, enjoy your life, this is a fantastic opportunity to be alive and happy and out there!

    Pros

    If getting over 130 days on the mountain is your goal work for the call center. They allow 4 10 hour shifts with 3 days off and you can sign up for "split shifts" which allows you a 2.5 hour ski/ride break.

    Cons

    Like ALL ski resorts the turnover is seasonal and based on weather. Reading through some of the reviews here it seems like some of you don't know how seasonal positions work.

    Advice to Management

    A company gym or discount would be great.

    Also, employee housing management is rude and practice unfair (and what I believe to be illegal) housing practices (lost a star over this). My advice would be to try and avoid it. It is not a great value for your money but it is day to day and you can move in or out with no notice.

    I worked at Mammoth Mountain (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good Pay
    - Great people
    - Overall good management
    - they respect overtime

    Cons

    - Long hours
    - Sometimes breaks dont come, and it can be cold outside

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I had a great season. The only part I hated was being :at will" so never being completely secured in my job.
