Internship/job Opportunity @ Ski Resort- Need Advice
This job is at Deer Valley in Park City, Utah. Before anyone says it, I know Deer Valley is ski only and yes I am 100% a snowboarder. I am in need of some serious advice about this potential job/internship because I don't really know what to expect. I am hoping someone on here has experienced a similar type job/internship and can shed some light on what to expect.
Deer Valley offers a handful of internships each winter @ 32 hrs/week, with benefits, and bonus's. The second interview I had with them explained how part of the job is sales and customer service (selling tickets, renting skis, helping guests with other info). The other part of the job is shadowing your desired department(s) throughout the company. Additionally, I would also have to ski around giving out questionnaires regarding how they spend their time, what type of terrain they ski, etc (I think).
My main question is has anyone experienced something like this? I don't want to drive 2,400 miles and have it be something completely opposite of what they say. I will be asking for an employee handbook the next time I talk to them, but that will only answer some of my questions. If it's worth noting, I achieve my bachelors degree in March of next year, so this type of internship would fit perfectly into my schedule. The only downfall is I have a decent cushy job now, which I would have to quit (even though they may take me back next spring). Lastly, despite having family in SLC, they live too far for the commute, therefore I would have to find a place to live.
Thank you for reading!!!
