Great Experience
Snowboard Instructor, Head Coach and Trainer (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC29 May 2016
Working with Big White was a great experience, like most seasonal jobs I have done. It provided good hours and a competitive wage for my position. Short staffing and a very impersonal approach to many things meant that it becomes tiresome, there is no room for professional development as the higher up positions are very set. Any complaints are not really taken seriously from staff, as they are easily replaced for next year. Overall I learnt many valuable things with my time there but I am more than ready to leave and develop somewhere else with new challenges. The co-workers are what make working in these type of places fantastic but eventually the lack of any career progression is concerning.
Pros
Great environment
Cons
Physical job with few breaks in busy periods, illness and injury becomes common.

Klasse Arbeitsort Nette Annehmlickeiten
Ski Lift Operator (Former Employee) –  British Columbia8 July 2019
Das Gehalt beläuft sich auf den in B.C. Mindestlohn von 12,65 CAD/h bezahlt wird alle zwei Wochen. die Arbeit ist ein mix aus langweilige arbeit und Knochenjob. Es werden Teilweise bedenkliche Tätigkeiten gefordert bezüglich der sicherheit am Arbeitsplatz
Das Panorama und die frische Luft machen einiges wieder wett
auch die Annehmlichkeiten wie ein kostenloses Season Ticket und eine reihe von Mitarbeiterrabatten sowie ein Bonussystem sind ganz nett. letzter punkt ist die unterkunft die mitarbeiterwohnungen sind mind 2 bett zimer ich habe in kelowna gewohnt und trotz nach frage bei meinem chef keine informationen über den vorhandenen Shuttle service bekommen. die musste ich von einem Kollegen aus einer anderen Abteilung erfahren.

Terrible management, coworkers were welcoming
Trail crew (Former Employee) –  Big White Ski, BC22 June 2019
Management did not provide ppe that they required, poorly organized, vague job description, poor communication between separate work groups.

Coworkers were welcoming, and helpful with answering any questions.

Cost of living was very high, and cabs to the resort are very expensive ($160). Nothing is open in the village for the first 3 weeks of employment besides the very expensive market which is open Monday-Thursday until 3.
