This resort is mostly well run. They experience the same operating difficulties year after year, as there is very high turnover in each department due to its seasonal nature. Although most staff act in a professional manner, it never seems very organised. The food and beverage outlets are among the most unorganized.
Sunshine as a company are terrible. They will treat you like just a number and replace you if they see fit. Living on the hill they take away all your freedom its like a glorified prison. The food they feed you is trash and you're not allowed to make food in your room. They will kick you off with a days notice and 0 mercy. There is nothing to do after 5 and you're not allowed to hangout with friends or coworkers in your spare time. I would never work for sunshine again. Anyone who ever has will tell you that same thing. Garbage company.
best experience i have ever had to date. the reciprocals you get for riding other mountains is a great work incentive and benefit which makes up for the minimum wage say that though you don't do this job for money you do it to have a fun time and enjoy company around you and make life long friends and that is defiantly what i did. will be going back for sure in the future
I worked for sunshine for 88 days and was fired just before the 90 day cut off like many other employees. The termination was not justified and HR was unable to give me any kind of reasoning for my dismissal. Completely unorganized and uneducated people running a seasonal job equals a hostile working environment, job security is always on the line and employees are looked at as just a number. Good luck with this corporation.
most enjoyable part would be the ease of access to hiking everywhere, the occasional chance of seeing a grizzly. This job gave me plenty of time to explore Banff and the surroudings on my own.

Great atmosphere for someone trying to improve their skiing/ snowboarding skills and is passionate about the industry
Such a great experience. Worked nights 4 days a week and had 3 days off. Amazing reciprocal package. Free skiing at most resorts in the Canadian Rockies and 50% off hotels and merchandise at Sunshine Village.
Awesome experience working in an environment that allows you to connect with like minded individuals work can become mundane but its about the experience of where you are
2hr ride break available during shift
For the most part, Sunshine was a good place to work. It tended to get extremely busy (esp. Christmas) and as a result, tensions ran high. You work with a lot of travellers and like minded people, so making friends is a breeze
cheap food, free ski pass, friendly people
under experienced management and staff
I would wake up around 6 in the morning catch the bus then get a ride from the gondola up the hill sign in and start preparing for the first wave of people to start showing up.
ride breaks, 5 dollar big lunches from staff caffe
crazy busy on the holidays
it had its up and downs but in all a good job was always fun to finish work and do the ski out to the bus and meeting new people from different walks of life
free sjki pass cheap or free food
distance getting to work and cold gonodal ride up
at sunshine village you work hard for very little respect. sunshine village like to give you a bonus at the end of the season however you have to work till the very last day to actually receive this bonus seems easy enough right. wrong. by the time the last day of the season comes around you've accumulated around $1400 so they'll find an excuse to fire you so they don't have to pay out that bonus. or they will get rid of you within the first 3 months after you've helped set things up and get operations moving. They don't need a reason to terminate as you are in your "probation" period.
cheap staff cafe, perks to many other ski resorts
no respect, no job security
It was the quite the experience working at Sunshine Village. We had a great group of people to work with. We were always in the public eye so appearance was everything. Our daily duties included but were not limited too: shoveling snow, changing bins, vacuuming floors, cleaning washrooms etc.
