    I worked at Park City Resort full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful, peers are cool, lifestyle, free pass

    Cons

    terrible pay, terrible hours, 6 years at the mountain and they paid newcomers more than me, they don't make you feel good about working there, ambition is not rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better, not everyone is there to just be a ski bum, some of us want to grow

    Pros

    Beautiful place, kind interviewers, would be lucky to be fully employed.

    Cons

    After applying and being guaranteed the position, they did a background check. I received a copy as well and so I knew when they got it. Waited a week, no responce. Called 20 times over 20 days. Always HR would give me ignorance or lies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promise to employ someone and then give them no hours. I am poor as is and the flight into SLC costs money. Please treat humans with respect.

    I worked at Park City Resort (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company, fun up tempo working environment with well trained and coordinated managers. Good benefits for the mountain enthusiasts. Nice product benefits.

    Cons

    Not many complaints. For people looking to build a pedigree in ski instructing I don't think there is a better place to start.

    Advice to Management

    (Raise pay) Biggest asset was creating a fun energy filled work environment through the instructor managers. Continue to push toward sending new instructors to training to up their status.

    Cons

    No growth, management that is not at all resourceful, and a lot of manipulation going on to coax people into committing to an unpromising career.

    Be transparent with your employees.

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

    Pros

    Great working environment. Supervisor was friendly enough. Got discount on food and a free meal a day. Over all great work experience

    Cons

    Kitchen was really hectic during dinner time. People shouted a lot, but I kept pealing and dicing onions and potatoes too.

    Advice to Management

    The kitchens should be bigger, wider rooms and more professional equipment training to teach people how to properly use the machines and clean them.
