Good place to get involved, poor pay
The work environment is great, and you have reasonable flexibility in your scheduling. Scedules tend to be changed frequently, and with little to no warning. Lots of work for minimum wage. Tips would compensate, but people are generally poor tippers.

Fun workplace with amazing team
The work was hectic during the weekends but our manager had the shifts assigned accordingly so that it wouldn't put burden on anybody. The work culture was highly positive with everyone trying to motivate you to do your best. I had a great multicultural experience.

Ugh
I hated the manager such a (word I’m not allowed to use) and so (another word I cont use) rude to staff and customers of which there were none. Just proves what a (another word I can’t use) place it is. More nice places to stay. Outdated decor and a bad smell.

Not respecting of managment
Great opportunity to have amazing staff perks. However felt the managment of the resort need a bit of tweaking and need to adapt to a bit of emotional intelligence

Its the mountain life
You do not come here to save money. This is for the experience of the mountain. The perks with corp companies are not great. If you do want to save money you need a second job as most servers and bartenders are not getting full-time hours. I recommend working here as an experience.
Pros
Free pass, new people, mountain life
Cons
not full time, employee benefits, staff accommodation, pay, shoulder season

The hill seems to have an Identity crisis, cant decide if it wants to be a destination resort or a Ma and Pa ski hill
Most of the staff are good people to work with, but I can't say that management is run the best. From my experience, they hire inexperienced people for management positions and they make quite a few errors when it comes to pay-roll. The hardest part of the job was getting let go for being the only person who knew how to do the job properly.
Pros
Free ski pass
Cons
Getting taken advantage of, teenage managers, getting under-paid compaired to co-workers

I taught part time for 18 years, Sun Peaks is an amazing world class resort!
I taught skiing, snowboarding & snow biking. First tracks on powder days and amazing guests from all over the world. It never felt like work for 18 years!

Poor place to work
In my 35 plus years of working this place was the WORST. I was hired as a Kitchen Supervisor. This was supposed to be a full time year round position. It was neither. Management is poor. Coworkers were intimidated by the General manager of the Lodge. A poor working environment, who gave no encouragement to grow, or input what you may have learned in your life's experiances.
Pros
Free lunch, good people to work with.
Cons
Everything else
