Fast pace enthronement cleaning and re stocking hotel room working in a large number off locations indoor and outdoor. cleaning and stocking off storage rooms and linden cart. working with other to meet deadline .
a lot off work
Stressful job, little or no training, abusive people and Management tend to cover up. No getting sick or having a family emergency as you have to find someone to cover your shift which is impossible as all other Supervisors and Managers are already at 40 hours and no overtime is welcomed by Management. No lunches or breaks often as it's too busy and usually short staffed. Internationals are given more freedom to do what they want without being reprimanded, unlike the locals.
Stress and anxiety
Busiest time was at the weekend where work could be hectic. Weekdays was more relaxed. Staff and management were friendly. The resort provided accomadation and were helpful when you needed help for anything including accomadation issues or to life in Canada in general.
Blue Mountain is a world-class company. They treat their people really good. It feels like a family here. The people are excellent to work with. The Leaders are happy and work with their team very well. Being outdoors, meeting new people and doing a job I love - it is great!
Worked here for 3.5 years. The worst days of my life. Supervisor and management don't care. They have there favorites and doesn't matter how hard you work. Well supervisors and management a d there favorites have smoke breaks all day.they allow work place violence and stealing. and don't say a word because they are there favorites and you get written up. No matter how hard you work. They don't care about you.the stuff I seen in carpets from bloody mattress to Farr beyond was exnore. If your wise. RUN FROM THIS JOB.
Very busy dealing with all types of customers from small towns to the big city. You learn about patience and the importance of good service. The line ups somedays would stretch outside and last for hours. You learn to help one customer at a time so everyone feels important however your on to the next person as fast as possible.
Some people don't care enough so you have to make up for their lack of work ethic.
I worked in the rentals department from late November to late march and had a great experience all the supervisors and management staff was amazing. You received plenty of training prior to my first shift. At times, especially holidays and weekends it could get very busy and be a very fast paced environment, but on slower days it was very relaxed. They did their best to accommodate all scheduling requests. Another great thing was all the perks you got resort wide.
Resort wide discounts
In my time at in the blue mountain kitchen i loved the management and the management system, it was very organized. Keeping employees was an entirely different issue. A poor wage mixed with a stressful job accompanied by 70-80 hour work weeks leaves the busy season with a bad taste in your mouth. Flipped over to the slow season where management forces you out to save money, you will find you are always pushed about. benefits and security are why you choose Blue Mountain. otherwise it will be a hard fought career.
Same as above .. higher salary other than that great place to work/staff and supervisors fantastic .. very helpful ... very knowledgeable and always there to help
I personally worked as a lift operator/mechanic. My experience with that department was enjoyable. I was always learning and you can never ask to many questions. They are happy to keep you informed about anything you need to know. Best of luck to anyone who chooses this company for employment in the future! :)
I am going into my third season here, and I feel that I am now qualified to tell you some things you need to know before applying at Blue Mountain. Pros: 1: It's pretty easy work. Most of the jobs you may be doing are very easy. Some management jobs may be a bit more difficult, but a "standard" position, (for example Rental Attendant, Lodge Attendant, Ski School Instructor) it is quite easy. It can also be quite fun. 2: Perks. As an employee, there are many perks. You get to ski for free (free rentals if you don't have your own equipment), and you get discounted food, drinks and things in the village. You can also get discount on hotel rooms. Cons: 1: Favoritism. I saw another person on here saying something called "The Gang", and I agree with that. If you are in this so called "Gang", you can get away with anything. I have come across some people not doing anything, and others getting heckled even when they work twice as hard as their co-workers. Some departments are better than others at this. 2: Scheduling. They ask you for your schedule preferences, then (usually if you aren't in "The Gang") they ignore them. I had to talk to several managers and supervisors just to get hours that I am comfortable working. In conclusion, Blue Mountain is a great place to work, but you have to watch out for a couple things.
Training program is amazing. Vacuums there are terrible, may as well eat the crumbs off the floor, that's how well and quickly they worked.
I enjoyed the training program. It is very extensive. However, because I have an eye for detail and believe in integrity, I found cleaning the rooms in the time given was not long enough. It all depended on what type of room you were cleaning, and how well the guests took care of it. It was hard for me to fathom leaving a room not completely cleaned or cutting corners, when people pay so much to stay.
