Former Employee - Ski Instructor in Vail, CO (US)

I worked at Vail Resorts full-time for more than a year

Pros

Free pass to five great mountains. Teaching with the best instructors in the world. It was great fun and you're always outdoors.

Cons

First year inductors find it hard to make a full living financially. Ran by a corporation and it has that feel to it. It's seasonal and you'll have times of unemployment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lower cost so more people can visit and ski which will make everyone more money!

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    living and working in the mountains

    Cons

    no upward movement in the company. college graduate with a business degree who took a low level job in a company that promotes itself by saying they hire from within, doesn't. after 2 years of working at a low level, low paying job while trying to move into a business or management field it became clear that it wasn't going to happen. so 2 years gone without any experience to help get ahead in any other field, and no help from the company you thought was going to be your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to the employees you have, they are there for a reason, usually because they have a love for the mountains and the industry that surrounds it.

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    All the benefits the resort give to their employees are one of the pros of the company, its a place where you can learn a lot and you can work with people around the world.

    Cons

    some areas werent following the vail resorts code, they didnt respect the quality of the service (food) they only thought about money without taking care of the service the customers deserve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give all the employees the chance and opportunity to be open with the management areas, cause theres a lot of things we could change but sometimes no one listens. Is important to remember that the mission of the resort is to give the best service, and stop thinking about only the money and forgetting about the service the resort provides.
