There are hundreds of jobs to be filled as Mount Washington Alpine Resort prepares for the 2015-16 season.

Mount Washington Alpine Resort holding Job Fair on Nov. 7

With the 2015-16 winter season fast approaching, Mount Washington Alpine Resort, one of Vancouver Island’s largest employers, will hold their annual winter Job Fair this Saturday, Nov. 7, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the resort.

“During peak winter season, we employ over 700 staff members. If you’re looking for an energetic, fun work environment, Mount Washington should be on the top of your list,” explains Human Resources co-ordinator Dale Logan.

“Candidates will be able to meet the department supervisors face-to-face and, in some cases, receive their initial job interviews this weekend.”

Above all, Mount Washington is looking for individuals who are capable of delivering exceptional customer service. A pre-existing passion for snow sports helps, but it isn’t essential.

“We are committed to going above and beyond for our guests,” continues Logan. “We strive to hire those who are not only passionate about our mountain culture, but who also excel at excellent customer service. For those just starting out in the workforce, the resort is a great way to build up your experience.”

Opportunities abound in various departments across the mountain, including Food and Beverage, Lift Operations, The Tube Park, Nordic Operations, Snow School and Retail Operations.

A staff season pass, an active lifestyle and fresh mountain air are all obvious perks of working for Mount Washington. In addition, the resort offers a comprehensive Perks and Benefits program for all employees. These include complimentary staff transportation services from the Comox Valley to the mountain, lessons and rentals, as well as food and retail discounts.
