I loved my job.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I really loved my time at Blue Mountain. Having worked at other Ski Resorts I’ve learnt just how great Blue really was! They’d keep staff informed of resort changes, you would always be up to date & know what was needed of you. Regular meetings with management to discuss performance / opportunities. They also truly value staff feedback, which was so refreshing. Personal and professional development was offered. There were opportunities to grow. The perks were fantastic & my salary was suited for the seasonal role! My manager was also fantastic, as was senior management when I needed to interact.

Pros

Ski pass, rentals, retail & fb discount, lessons

Stressful & No Teamwork

Managers are very critical of how the employees work and the senior co-workers are always looking for ways to get the new workers fired. Job isn't secure.

Pros

Free coffee and hot meals available during the seasons

Cons

Management, Co-Workers & job security

Fun atmosphere, beautiful views. Management needs improvement.

They have a benefits system set up that only allows CORE employees to receive benefits but they make it nearly impossible to get CORE designation. Employee reviews are frequently skipped or postponed and forgotten about. Raises are yearly and based on job performance but are around 60 cents extra per hour. The management team seems more interested in distracting disappointed employees with temporary prizes or incentives. The company likes to reward exceptional employees with small prizes like an ice cream cone, $5 gift cards, $10 gift cards, or at the most, a trip to the spa. Quarterly they do a free lunch. Once or twice a year they do a discounted hockey game/Canada's Wonderland trip. Management is over-worked and have very little time for employee concerns. HR protects the company from employee concerns rather than assists the employee in addressing those concerns with the company. Promotions are not frequent, they do a lot of external hiring, and the internal promotions are largely based on popularity rather than merit or seniority. The atmosphere is a great help, and the environment is beautiful. Fellow employees are friendly and fun.

Pros

Beautiful and fun atmosphere, free ski pass for employee and immediate family, cheap Canada's Wonderland trip

Cons

Poor wages, over-worked management, concerns go ignored, no real room for advancement.

personnel is an expendable commodity

if you like - to be regarded as an expendable day labourer - to be treated like a serf - suck up to your managers - have the attitude minimum wage = minimum effort - can't be bothered to think on the job - don't mind double faced superiors who bend or invent company policies as they please - beeing sent home if there are few customers then you will like it there and have an easy job you can advance in hirarchy move up from Operator to Teamlead with an incredible salary hike of 80 cts per hour. The so called perks aren't worth it when you look at it. - free skiing: compare that to the pre season sale of the 5x7 pass and you'll find it has little value. - 30% off merchandise: you can get that by shopping online Staff rooms with exception to the one in Central Lodge which is visible to the public are a filthy mess filled with junk furniture which shows you the attitude towards staff

Review summary on Blue Mountain Resort

Overall wasn’t to bad of a job. At times it was stressful because of the amount of customers but for the most part was pretty easy and a low stress environment.

Working in the Kitchen.

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.

Fun place to work

It was a good job for the winter season, it was easy to book off shifts or get them replaced with a co worker. The management in the south lodge is pretty good, I felt like they cared about me there.

In need of new management

Over the many years I have worked at Blue Mountain I have maintained great relationships with my coworkers. I very much enjoy the nature of the job and I enjoy working on my own. Returning manager, however overworks her staff and is extremely unappreciative of the work done, always expecting more. When you do tell them how you feel, and explain this is why they are so understaffed, you are penalized.. very immature and unappreciative over all. Truly sad for a lot of employees that otherwise enjoy their job, and do a fantastic job at it!

Pros

Beautiful location, great co workers, accommodating work hours, ski pass and other discounts/benefits

Cons

Ungrateful management, overworked ; underpaid and understaffed

Good place to work

Depending on where you your at the mountain and what department you work at, its a pretty good place to work. You would obviously get paid minimum wage. The managemnt, like most places , are good and bad. Some i super nice and chill and some are rude. Typical day at work (for me its at Rentals) is pretty basic and boring other than weekends. The week days are slow and the weekends are a little busy. They are pretty flexible for hours and fulfill your day off requests to the best of their abilaty.
