Feels like highschool all over again
Punching bag (Current Employee) – Jasper, AB – 16 February 2018
Very bad experience working at Marmot Basin. Day consists of getting on the bus at 7am, arriving at 8am, working 9-4/430, back on the bus at 5, and finally home by 6. The actual job isn't difficult and I enjoy it for the most part but there is a lot of waiting around, aka gone for 11 hours a day but only paid for 6.75hours which leaves you with very little time to do anything other than work. The pay is minimum wage and all work is outside in freezing temps anywhere from 0 to -35 degrees. As for work culture get ready for highschool all over again, always drama, always gossip, and if you don't fit in right away they are very vocal about how much they dislike you. I came here very eager to meet new people and explore the mountains but haven't had luck in either aspect as most of the people here are more interested in getting plastered than enjoying nature. The pro of this job is that you get to be so close to the mountains, if you want to enjoy a nice hike/bike/run/skate/climb its all just out your front door. Management is not very helpful so it's a lot of trial and error but the supervisors are nice.
