    I worked at The Canyons Resort full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers, good pay and benefits. Meet people from all over the world.

    Cons

    upper management is out of touch and always on your back. Skills and experience are not appreciated. Treated poorly. Management lies to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to do their job without your negative remarks to them. This causes low moral among the employees. When a upper boss uses foul language with you for no good cause and is demeaning to an employee this is not professional or called for. Glad to be gone just because of the upper management. Lower management has a great turn over because of these things.

    Pros

    Fun job and good people to work with.

    Cons

    Very low pay and the hours make it difficult to work a second job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guides need more money. Many guides love the job but can't afford to stay.

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort

    Pros

    Great health insurance options for full time employees

    Cons

    Everything else! Once Vail Resorts purchased Canyons Resort we lost lots of previous discounts, our pay scale is changing, longtime supervisors were replaced with people that were never seen or accessible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like humans instead of just another number!

    Pros

    Canyons of Old was amazing, the people the culture superseded 10 fold over Vail resorts idea of culture and values, every part of their Values- do good, do right blah blah and more blah...Vail values are empty word thats all...

    Cons

    Vail empty promises....During Transition the company made many errors that made our work&life balance very difficult. So many that when they actually had a great opportunity to do right the company decided agains it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management of old please look for a brighter place to grow....

    Current Employee - Child Care Teacher in Park City, UT (US)

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free ski pass, beautiful view, laid back environment, free lunch, variety of children and ages (6 weeks-6 years), sliding down a snowy hill with the kids and riding the gondola. Babysitting for guests at night or on your days off pays very well.

    Cons

    Working weekends and holiday, $10.50/hr, on-call sometimes, getting over-time hrs is very rare, getting sick (around kids)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They're wonderful and really care. Communication between employee and management is always key.

    I have been working at The Canyons Resort full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The skiing and the ability to be outside and not always in the office. My boss had full faith in me which was nice so I was able to give well over 100% to my job.

    Cons

    The lack of vision towards the future for some management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to think like a person who is visiting your resort from another part the country. Someone who's entire life does not revolve around skiing but for one week it might.
