Productive and fun workplace

I had a great time working here. I love skiing and I love making money so this was the perfect job for me. I enjoyed working along side the other employees because like me, they also love skiing.

Staff and management were friendly and supportive.

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.

Great Company!

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!

4 Season Resort with lots to see and do

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.

Pros

Great Team

Cons

Some people don't care enough so you have to make up for their lack of work ethic.

Good job with a better salary.

I usually work at weekends. Sunday is the busiest day in the resort. Winter is awesome in the blue mountains. If you are hard and smart worker it is a better job. If you have proper transportation facilities, it might be good for you.

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.

Great to be in the outdoors

If you are a truly inspired person by what you do or by being outside, then working here is wonderful. You get to be with a lot of like minded people and you get to do what you are passionate about. There are some really fun jobs to be offered here. Day to day you deal with a lot of tourists coming from all over the world. Your co-workers are usually pretty cultural. The hardest part of this job though can just be the upper level of management. Change can be pretty slow here because it is a large corporate company. You'll get the feeling of "if only they could be in my shoes". There is also room for advancing here, but with so many people looking to advance out of the bottom line positions, there is a lot of competition. You gotta know someone to get further.

Pros

discounts, outside, passionate positions, good people, coworkers, lower level management

Cons

upper level management, long hours, weather, pay, advancement

Fun, Innovative, Always expanding

I spent 6 dedicated years at this resort out of love for the culture it was building. It didn't matter which department you were apart of, everyone knew each other, and got along with each other. Depending on your role, you could have long days spent with quests or you can be working behind the scenes helping the resort to run as smoothly as possible. Regardless of your role, you were a key ingredient to the success of the resort and the management team would acknowledge that. They would provide every staff with authority, have numerous staff meetings so that everyone had a voice and would act on the issues faced to make sure they wouldn't happen again in the future. Always expanding means there is room to move up within the company and show your love for the resort.

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.

Its a hard job when its busy

this employer pays more than most in the area. during peak tourism seasons the hours are more than enough. during slow season it can vary a bit.

housekeeping

The job was very hard once you were out of training. It is very busy year round and you were always helping out where needed, when sometimes you just wanted to go home.

Pros

the people
