Employment FAQ

After the initial interview with a recruiter from Human Resources, your application is forwarded to the hiring manager for the job you applied for. The hiring manager will contact you within one week of receiving your application. If after the initial interview, we do not think you’re a good fit for us, we’ll let you know. If you don’t hear anything after one week (and please give us all 7 days… hiring season gets CRAZY!!!), please feel free to contact us. We’ll be happy to follow up on the status of your application.
Health insurance is offered to year-round and flex year-round employees (9 months to year-round positions). For information about your eligibility or details about benefits, check in with your manager or with the Payroll and Benefits Coordinator in Human Resources. You must work a minimum of 1,560 hours/year to maintain benefits.
Yes. When you are hired, you will receive an email from Alterra for your online on-boarding through our HR portal, UltiPro. You will also receive a background check from Sterling Talent Solutions. Upon completion, you will visit the Human Resources office (located in the Admin Building at the base of the resort) to complete the I-9 verification, which is a government requirement proving your eligibility to work in the United States. You will need to bring in the physical documents for an HR representative to review. We do not accept faxes or photo copies. The most common documents that will prove your eligibility are a) photo IDs (driver and non-driver’s license), and b) social security cards or birth certificates. You will need a document from both list A and B. A passport is also sufficient. You will not be able to start working until you have provided these documents and followed through with all HR requirements. There will be no exceptions, so please come prepared! Human Resources is open 7 days a week during the winter season, so we are always happy to help you!
Housing is very limited. Winter Park Employee Housing is prioritized for full time, first-season employees to provide an opportunity to get to know the area and become a member of the community. Not all first-season employees are provided housing.

You should talk to your manager or supervisor about your desire to return to work. After they confirm they would like to hire you back, be sure to apply to the job online. Stop in to HR to start your onboarding process (must be done annually). *Never assume you have your job back. Things can change between seasons, so it’s important to touch base with your manager and check in with Human Resources before the season starts.
We’re looking for people that are passionate about life and what they do. People who love winter and other people. People who want to be at Winter Park! Tell the truth. We’re going to find out who you are eventually, so just be yourself.
THE RIGHT CLOTHING. Be sure to ask your new manager/supervisor about dress code or recommended clothing/footwear for the job you will be doing, especially if you’re working outdoors. They can give you some great tips for layering and staying warm and dry. Proper footwear is really important! The outdoor crews around the resort do an amazing job of shoveling and salting walkways and roads. However, conditions are constantly changing, so it’s your responsibility to be cautious. If something looks icy, it probably is! Be careful. Keep in mind that our winters can be unpredictable. A day could start out sunny and warm and by the end of your shift, it may be snowing. Be prepared for anything!

MONEY. Bring enough to live on for a few weeks. Depending on when you arrive and start working, you may not get paid for three weeks because of how our payroll cycles work. We recommend that you set up direct deposit when you arrive. Make sure you have a little bit of a cushion until you are fully settled.
Pay periods run for two weeks and end on Fridays. Pay Day comes every two weeks on Fridays. Winter Park Resort no longer does paper checks. Please setup direct deposit. If you don’t setup direct deposit, you will be given a pay card issued by US Bank.
Jobs are posted as soon as hiring managers are ready to set appointments for interviews! Generally, you’ll see winter jobs posted late in the summer. Keep checking the website through early fall and into December. We try to have most jobs filled by Thanksgiving. Some jobs remain posted throughout the season, so just keep looking until you see something you like.

We ask a lot of questions because we really care about the kind of people we’re hiring. We take pride in what makes our work place unique… it’s all about the employees. We want our customers to really notice the awesome people who are running the lifts, serving the hot chocolate, shoveling the walkways, grooming the trails, making the snow… you get it, right? We look for people who we think will mesh well with the culture we promote:

  • Motivation
  • Positive energy and attitude
  • Willing to embrace and drive change
  • Active lifestyle
  • Passion for service & our product
  • Respect for peers and guests
  • Teamwork

So we’re going to ask a lot of questions. We want to get to know you a little bit. We hope that after talking to us, you’ll want to work here even more!

Please fill out an application for the new position that you’re interested in. The hiring manager will check on your employment history with us and then schedule an interview.
