    I worked at Yellowstone Club full-time

    Pros

    Tip Pool, Living in Ski Town (if you can find housing), Employee Ski Days,

    Cons

    Managers/Supervisors do not care about anything, told to lie to members, commuting because of housing crisis

    Advice to Management

    Food and Bev - you have such a high turnover because of how poorly you treat your employees. The few people who actually want to do well and improve service are punished by being silenced. This job is easily the worst food and beverage job I have ever had. Take a lesson from other departments who actually can retain staff...

    Excellent benefits and management. You get to interact with excellent clients. Upper management is approachable and genuinely cares about their employees.

    During the busy periods you work 25+ days without a day off.

    I have been working at Yellowstone Club full-time

    Pros

    1. It's very scenic.
    2. Most of the fellow newbies are good people.
    3. Getting to leave and never going back.

    Cons

    1. Management Management Management
    2. Constant health issues from the food served in the employee cafeteria.
    3. Being paid an embarrassing amount (who can live off of $250 a week?) and then, on top of that, being nickel and dimed through housing and ski passes.
    4. Unkept promises and outright deception used to entice a potential employee.
    5. Encouraging a negative work culture through endorsing greedy, sedentary, and unprofessional behavior.
    6. Sleeping with the employees.
    7. Did I mention the Management? This is Their RESPONSIBILITY. They are the people implementing the ideas and fostering this breeding ground of abhorrent policies and employee abuse. At least their parking spots and member like privileges are in tact.
    8. Taking away the anonymous employee comments/concerns box.
    9. Taking away ski days for political reasons and blaming the staff instead.
    10. Blacklisting employees who speak up and question any policies, but promoting those who steal, lie, and abuse the system.

    Advice to Management

    Attend a seminar on management. Or Five. Clean House and hire people who are conducive to making a profit and creating a positive work culture. GET RID OF THE TIP POOL!

    I worked at Yellowstone Club full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful place to work. Cool houses and architecture. Lunch and shuttle offered. Relatively easy work. Most houses are clean to start with just need detailing. Ski pass is a great bonus and the hill there is amazing.

    Cons

    Long commute. A lot of tedius work, especially dusting. Construction cleans were the worst and super disorganized. Work environment wasn't the best. Felt like I was in high school, both with the people employed and the management. A different department at the club would probably be more enjoyable to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Display what you what like to see in your employers. Be respectful. Try to be uplifting and encouraging. Feedback was often condescending and management felt clicky.


  10. "Work on diversity"

    I worked at Yellowstone Club full-time

    Pros

    Lots of people of on staff who love what they do.

    Cons

    Lots of white people. In my experience the minorities who were employed were back of the house.

    Advice to Management

    Really try hard to recruit a more diverse front of the house staff .
