Good job for a young person, skier with long hours and fun event to supervise
Superviseur bars et banquets (Former Employee) – Mont Tremblant, Québec – 17 June 2015
Typical day at work start in the after noon and finishes when the party is over. Working in different location with different people is very stimulating, but you need to be very well organise and ready.
Great part time seasonal job for retired/semi retired people
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Collingwood, ON – 25 May 2017
Guest Services provides a number of different job possibilities suitable for adventurous young people just starting out in the work force or for flexible, outgoing, retired/semi-retired people looking to be part of a pleasant resort work culture.
I find the management to be encouraging, flexible and supportive of a positive and even fun work environment.
Customer service jobs typically begin at minimum wage, but I understand that small increments come with years of experience. If you like outdoor adventure, the benefits are generous.
Overall, Blue Mountain Resort is a great place to work.

The biggest con of this place was Management ! Management was not respectable of your personal life. They were not accommodating to days off and only schedule 1 week in advance which does not leave room for planning since you never know if your day off was approved/ you had a job. They pick favourites and cater to those people regularly. I have never worked with such a crew before and I have lots of customer service experience. Only reason I am writing this is to advise you to choose something better because once your in they are nice but eventually will turn and you will see. Its a basement environment so be prepared to bring a blanket in the Winter!
Hours 7:45am -10pm
The most enjoyable part of the job was coming in when most management has left the office and we could breathe without them listening to our personal conversations which was often !
They say its not a competitive environment yet they have a top 3 sales board and give them KODOS... but than no one else gets recognition.
Free snacks when office makes budget(which is almost impossible), Ski Pass, Discounts on activites
Office makes budget but very hard for you to get script % to get rewarded in $, Management, Basement, Communication, Only Negative reviews and nothing about the good you have done
Leisure Time Rep & Sales (Former Employee) – Blue Mountain, Collingwood – 26 April 2015
Do you like being overworked, unappreciated In a négative micromanaged environment? Do you like being underpaid, no life work balance, irregular hours and not knowing if your going to have a job next week? Do you like having information overload, constant criticism and never meeting your impossible sales targets? Would a moldy, dark and dirty basement be the office of your choice? Then apply....
Local employment, hardworking co-workers
Unprofessional management, lack of communication, impossible sales targets, micromanagement by unqualified/poorly trained managers, negative feedback never positive, poor pay, information overload, irregular and not enough hours to support oneself financially, dead end job.

Management was terrible at the end of season there was no praise and no further schedule. I was told I would get a final review and received nothing I wasn't even informed on my last day to come into work and only worked the schedule times from previous hours. Absolutely no communication was terrible.
