Rental Technician (Employé actuel) – Whistler, BC – 7 avril 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.

Takes advantage of the fact that people will come to Whistler to work no matter what due to the lifestyle and location. Pay is awful, upper management treats you like dirt. Your coworkers are amazing and you will bond about going through it all together
