Canyons Resort- Child Care teacher

Child Care Teacher (Current Employee)
Park City, UT (US)

I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time for more than a year

ProsFree ski pass, beautiful view, laid back environment, free lunch, variety of children and ages (6 weeks-6 years), sliding down a snowy hill with the kids and riding the gondola. Babysitting for guests at night or on your days off pays very well.

ConsWorking weekends and holiday, $10.50/hr, on-call sometimes, getting over-time hrs is very rare, getting sick (around kids)

Advice to Senior ManagementThey're wonderful and really care. Communication between employee and management is always key.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The Canyons of old was GREAT, But Vail Resorts NOT SO MUCH A GOOD COMPANY....

N/A (Current Employee)
Park City, UT (US)

I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCanyons of Old was amazing, the people the culture superseded 10 fold over Vail resorts idea of culture and values, every part of their Values- do good, do right blah blah and more blah...Vail values are empty word thats all...

ConsVail empty promises....During Transition the company made many errors that made our work&life balance very difficult. So many that when they actually had a great opportunity to do right the company decided agains it.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement of old please look for a brighter place to grow....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fun job perks and great team.

Director of Public Relations (Current Employee)
Park City, UT (US)

I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe skiing and the ability to be outside and not always in the office. My boss had full faith in me which was nice so I was able to give well over 100% to my job.

ConsThe lack of vision towards the future for some management.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to think like a person who is visiting your resort from another part the country. Someone who's entire life does not revolve around skiing but for one week it might.

Fun Work Place for those that love the outdoors

Groomer (Current Employee)
Park City, UT (US)

I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFree season passes and fun people to work with. For your first few years moving up is easy if you will work hard and show up on time and sober.

ConsHard to get in to upper managment, there is a good old boys network that is very tight and some depaartment managers whom dont pull their weight seem to skate by due to friendships in senior managment and lack of knolodge in senior managment.

Advice to Senior ManagementRember, to some this is a carreer not just a job for a pass.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

watch your back

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at The Canyons Resort full-time for more than 5 years

Prosamazing relationships that I fostered over time, some of which I still have, we had fun while I was there

Consthe truth is not something that upper management understands, backstabbing is the new norm, document all conversations

Advice to Senior Managementgo away

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

If nly they really cared enough about their employees.

Beverage Supervisor (Former Employee)
Park City, UT (US)

I worked at The Canyons Resort full-time for less than a year

ProsLots of really terrific people work for the two companies and do their best to make a difference in the resort setting.

ConsThe management does not really have their eye on keeping people for the long term. The owner spends money on frivolous and expensive ventures but fails to realize that people are the best investment he could make. Mid-level management is stuck in a cannibalistic mindset where they try to stay alive before they are eaten up by someone higher up.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lie to your employees, or set them up for failure. Also, pay people what they are worth for the high stress jobs they perform.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
