a season like the mountain, very up and down
Rental Technician (Current Employee) – Whistler, BC – 7 April 2018
Working for whistler blackcomb while a great experience was not what I had expected. Working in a rental shop with little staff, saw me working more hours, with minimal wage than I had originally planned. While living is affordable through staff accommodation it remains difficult through high prices on food and other activities.
I have however made many great friends and had many days on the mountain snowboarding while working here which is a major positive.
Within my rental shop a typical day at work is meant to be an 8 hour shift but busy days, long opening hours and poor staffing saw many of these days doing overtime without much of a say in it at all.
One positive I have taken from this experience however is my now increased knowledge about sis and snowboards, relating to all snow conditions and abilities.
