No enforcement of safety or any rules, no working heat, no secure mail room in employee housing. no HR department to contact and lots of screw ups i.e. tax rates being entered wrong, hours missing from paychecks, significant delays in pay, certain departments hired with full-time hour expectations but then REQUIRED to work overtime and not able to request days off. way too big of a company and way overstaffed, and overpromising to guests/staff to not have employee support (HR functions outsourced to virtual company which take weeks to respond to urgent matters, if at all).
Advice to Management: Stop over promising guests and bringing in employees under false pretenses then act.
Unsafe vehicles, drivers forced into overtime, management fails to protect drivers.
Wage is low; don’t care about employees; overtime because they don’t have enough employees.Vail Resorts Glassdoor reviews
What Vail Resorts employees are saying about Vail
Absolute unfair pay, no holidays, no support from management, no benefits unless employee is full time which is very rare.
No work/life balance, they don’t listen to local resort or community feedback, no consideration for local cultures & values, super corporate, no heart. Morale is terrible. Staff have no sense of ownership of their roles or the company. It feels like working for a faceless corporate overlord when skiing is supposed to be about fun. The company is hated by the local community. I was embarrassed to tell people I worked for them.
Really low pay considering how expensive food is in Vail. You will be exposed to the sun pretty much all day in most work areas so you have to bring your own sun screen. A few crappy management members will try to get you to come in on your days off for extra training or work, and will treat you poorly if you won’t, effectively mandatory overtime despite policies that state otherwise. Sick days are highly discouraged but everyone gets sick because they live in dorm-like conditions. Most of your coworkers will probably be nomad potheads with no goals in life (hence the stricter management protocols).
No room to grow in the company, no pay raise in 5 years, and new manager every season. The communication between different departments is nonexistent.
No work/life balance, unrealistic expectations and forced office fun; little to no diversity.Vail Reviews at Glassdoor.com
Horrible management, no work/life balance, no loyalty, horrendous pay.
