    I have been working at Snowbird full-time

    Pros

    Working in the mountains is awesome. The best place to ski and work.

    Cons

    Pay is a little low compared to other companies.

    Better discount of food and retail.

    I worked at Snowbird (More than a year)

    Pros

    Met some great people, the benefits are good, beautiful place to work visually speaking

    Cons

    The heinous drive up the canyon.
    Being Overworked, under paid, and under appreciated

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and you will have better employees.

    Pros

    They provide free transportation up little cottonwood canyon for employees. 40% discount on all food for employees....which is...OK, I guess.

    Cons

    Other resorts I have worked at had at least one employee cafeteria with subsidized meals. Always something healthy for $2-5 dollars. Even with a 40% discount at Snowbird, food is just too expensive. Plan on packing a lunch unless you want to spend $7-10 dollars to eat on site. Corporate culture is awful. Very few employees want to work there. Employees HATE Oktoberfest because it is so poorly run and executed. Pay is really awful.

    Advice to Management

    Employee culture needs serious work. Pay has to increase unless you want your managers to deal with alarmingly high turnover.

    I worked at Snowbird full-time

    Pros

    The mountain school management team is top class in terms of leadership, training, guidance and support. Not to mention working at an awesome mountain with some of the greatest snow on earth.

    Cons

    It is a corporate environment, which has pluses and minuses.

    Advice to Management

    Only advice would be to, of course, increase pay for the little guy. There are a lot of entry level positions and it would be great to have a stronger road toward making a living wage for them.
