Senior-Host Guest Services (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 12 July 2017
Super accommodating, great management, best job I've ever had. Selling tickets and helping admit guests to the hill can be tough at times but the senior staff do an amazing job catering to every issue staff have religiously.
Rental Store Cashier (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 16 April 2017
Working for Whistler Blackcomb was a challenging and interesting experience. I have learned a lot on the job over the last 6 months. this job has furthered my existing problem solving skills after having to deal with some very difficult customers on a day to day basis. I would have perfered more of a detailed training before starting work, the training was quite basic.
Guest Services Administration Assistant (Current Employee) – Whistler Village, BC – 8 April 2017
No 2 days are the same being the Guest Services Administrative Assistant. One day you will be at your desk all day following up with guest queries, service recovery and financial reporting. The next you can put your bag down and not see your desk until you get your bag to go home. The people you work with are amazing be it your manager or a front line host. You regularly have to think outside the box to help find suitable solutions that work for both the guests and Whistler Blackcomb.
Ski Instructor (Current Employee) – Whistler, BC – 28 March 2017
O love being a ski instructor I've done it all over the world. Whistler Blackcomb is a huge company and provides incredible training, supervisors are great some staff members are unfriendly and snobby others are lovely.
Great traing, free lunch
often not paid for little extras that take up time
Reservations Host (Current Employee) – Whistler, BC – 9 March 2017
My salary was cut in half coming to Whistler, but the company, community,and recreation opportunities make every second totally worth it! Not to mention the perks (outstanding). Truly an amazing place to work, you will not regret it!! Get ready for an unforgettable adventure with amazing coworkers from around the world. With all the opportunities out here I really feel like you can't go wrong :)
Season's Pass, Great Support, Amazing Managers + Coworkers, Lots of new friends, Great community, Staff Accommodation (if you apply early enough before the season)
Might be a bit far away for some, but still totally worth it
Ski and Snowboard Tech (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 28 February 2017
Loved this job due to the fact that you will be skiing or snowboarding everyday to get back home from work. The rental shop is located on top of the mountain so it is not as busy as working in a store at the base of the mountain. Since you will be recommending skis and boards to customers, it is important to love these sports already to really excel at the job. Great people, great vibe and a lot of happy guests!
Roundhouse Lodge Station Cook (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 13 October 2016
I worked at the Roundhouse Lodge restaurant at the peak of whistler mountain for one season. the job itself was a lot of work and heavy on the hours. I was a line cook at the grill station. it offered a pretty amazing experience over all although i wish the hours allowed for more riding time time than they did. early start times and late end time meant no riding on work days.
I would go back to whistler blackcomb again in a heart beat but i would avoid working in food and beverage.
Amazing experience. Great fun with tons of time for snowboarding/skiing
Retail/Rental Technician (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 2 June 2016
Whistler Blackcomb is an amazing place to work for a season. Everyone is in good form and it is great for socializing and learning a new sport or improving if you have already snowboarded or skied. I would highly recommend to anyone aged 19-24 mainly but everyone can enjoy it. The reason for this is that it is quite a low wage to sustain yourself or save for a rainy day, but this is usually the case with working in an amazing location like this and it is worth the sacrifice (snow school instructor positions do pay very well). The perks are great - food and grocery discounts, free seasons pass, snow gear discounts, flexible hours, staff housing.It would be an excellent place to go before college while you decide what career to choose, as something to enjoy after studying, or as an amazing destination to go while travelling. It also really teaches you how to save and it really puts everything into perspective especially the work/life balance.
Great people, fun work, plenty of time on the mountain, discounts, free seasons pass.
Senior Guest Relations Host (Former Employee) – Whistler, BC – 10 October 2015
Nothing wrong with serving hundreds of customers a day, and seeing hundreds of smiles as I hand them their ski passes for the day. I enjoyed that I was given a lot of tools at my disposal to resolve almost any guest complaint on the spot. I was surrounded by a very supportive management team that went to great lengths to make the staff feel excited to come in to work. At times the job could become monotonous, but the great work mates would elevate such distress. It is incredibly rewarding for a business that has an amazing product such as a ski resort. It is fun to work for an employer when you are proud of them.
