We want you to consider joining us

There are so many things to talk about right now, I barely know where to start. Going into the winter season is like that. To anyone who got all excited when we launched this blog last winter and then felt we totally dropped the ball by never posting, please accept my apologies. It's proabably a time management thing, and I plan to solve it permanently.

Anyhow, I digress... now is the time to think about whether or not you'd like to consider joining our team here. We're holding a job fair on October 18th and 19th from 9am to 4pm. This is the time to come, show up, talk to managers here at the mountain and see if there's a good fit between what we're looking for and what you're looking for.

We're looking for a whole variety of people: Tourism career superstars who deliver amazing service and already know how to go the distance when it comes to serving our customers. Honestly, we want every single customer to feel like a rockstar, so if you have the skills, we want you to join us. We also want the super fun, crazy traveler types. Quite honestly, they usually have the best stories to share. Come spend the winter with us (even if it's your summer, for you Aussies) and enjoy the city of Vancouver. We're so close to the urban centre and accessible by transit; we really are your best bet for winter employment.

For all the kids out there who want to get in on the action in order to get a free ski pass (because I'll be honest, that's what I wanted when I started at Apex Mountain a zillion years ago), we have jobs for you too. If you're keen to work hard, put your learning hat on and earn some money and skills in the process, we'll help you figure it all out.

We're looking for Customer Service Representatives, Food Servers, kitchen staff, rental shop attendants, Lift Operators, patrollers, and loads of others - you can check out the full listing of current position openings... We have part time seasonal, full time seasonal, full time permanent and part time permanent jobs for the taking for the right candidates. I really think we have something you may be interested in.

I have been working in this industry since 1997, when I was a liftie at Apex Mountain just outside of Penticton. I joined the Grouse Mountain team in 1999 as a Guest Services Representative and now I'm doing the best job imaginable. Follow your dreams; follow your gut. Take your life wherever you want it to go. You can do anything you put your mind to.

And if you have questions, ask.
