    I have been working at Snowbird full-time

    Pros

    The people are really fun to work with and can make some really good friends that are interested in the same activities you are! Flexible hours

    Cons

    The management in general tend to be passive aggressive , micro managing can get to be a little too much, when there's high turn over then a lot of people get really burned out. It supposed to be a private company but its run like corporate

    Advice to Management

    often times the things that employees change or need to be worked really are things that need to be worked but the way its done is really depressing and not helpful in keeping up morale

    It's a pretty location and has great access to outdoors. Coworkers have been nice. They offer an ok insurance and 401k plan.

    Pros

    Very fun, relaxed atmosphere. Every one treated you like family and there was a very deep sense of community. Skiing or snowboarding all day.

    Cons

    Had to work in some of the worst winter conditions, subzero temperatures, and some very early mornings. Lack of communication between departments

    I worked at Snowbird full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The mountain when it isn't overcrowded. Unless you want a free ski pass DO NOT even think about working at this dumpster fire.

    Cons

    Management, commute, community, pay, culture, safety. Just don't work there. I lost out on a 500$ bonus because my best friend died and I missed 3 days of work.

    Management is uneducated, self centered, overly demanding, highly untrained, honestly the best two words to describe management at Snowbird are "junk trash"

    Advice to Management

    If you are management at Snowbird I strongly urge you to quit your job and take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself if you are a good person or not. If you say you are, well, that is a lie.

    Pros

    Wonderful place to be, nice people although you know that they are transient - that's okay. Very aware of safety on the mountain. Look, it's a ski area and if you are working at one you aren't going to climb over the dead bodies to get to the top so just enjoy it! It's a beautiful place and well run. I have many good memories and no bad ones that I can recall. And one more thing, I have had very nice conversations with Bob Bonar, the President of Snowbird and he treated me like an equal and he was totally cool - thank you Bob!

    Cons

    The crowds are terrible. Perhaps they should limit ticket sales.

    Advice to Management

    Employee of the Month award would be nice~free dinner at the Aerie or something. These are the little things that boost morale.

    Advice to Management

    thank you
