Easy going, fun place to work
Line Cook (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC6 February 2016
A typical day at work is preparation of food item for the day and stock up the line. Work the line for breakfast and part of lunch time plating, and deep fryer cooking, helping refill, and stock up food items.
Afternoon is preparation and portioning of food items, stock up front area cooler, and back area food cooler, and line.
I learned how to use the knives better, and how to operate kitchen machines in the kitchen.
Learned about Big White in general, what is up at Big White, Entertainment, Lodges, Skating, Gondola lifts etc.
Co-Worker were awesome. All of them.
The hardest part of the job is doing the line when it get really busy.
The most enjoyable part of the day is getting set up in the morning, and doing food preparation in afternoon.
The most best part of the day is getting there early mornings and seeing the beautiful sunrise. :)
Pros
Good bosses and co-workers
Cons
long hours

Lift Operator (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC9 December 2015
Big White was very strict about safety which was awesome. Work wasn't the best but it was a great place to be. Very cold at times when it was a slow day.

Fun, friendly Winter Season Holiday Job!
Ticket Sales Operator (Current Employee) –  Kelowna, BC30 November 2015
I moved from Adelaide Australia to see the snow and experience the mountain life. Big White Ski Resort allow you to do exactly that, whilst making enough money to cover your living expenses.

The work vibe at Big White is incredible - the staff, managers, colleagues, customers - everyone is just so pleased and proud to be here!

I would recommend a winter season to anyone to work at Big White Ski Resort to experience the Canadian winter season culture and make lifelong professional and personal relationships.
Pros
Free Ski Pass
Cons
Minimum Wage

Zamboni Operator (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC27 March 2015
Working as the rink maintenance i would zamboni the ice, clear it with the skid steer if it has snowed, and build a bon fire for the visitors to enjoy. It was team orientated, fun and a good working experience. best part of the job was watching people from all over the world come and try a sport that they've never done before.
