The work environment was incredible at Teton Village. I met some incredible people and made plenty of friends. I enjoyed getting work experience as a lead. I've learned a lot about how people co-operate and how to talk to employees. As some one who wants to run their own business, this experience was valuable in order for me to manage and be a better leader. I also picked up on many things from one of the best managers I've ever had. He taught me what it means to be a good leader and how I can progress at a company.
What I wish was different
I would say that the amount of time I spent there was too short. I frankly wish I could be there year round. Another thing I regret was that I didn't spend enough time getting to really know some of the employees I worked with. I believe that if I had gotten to know them, that we would've had a much better team than we did.
I suggest when you have an opportunity to be in a leadership position, that you really take your time to learn about the people you are leading, and put them before yourself. This will build a more cohesive team and you will understand what needs and what kind of positions the employees work best in. Putting the team before yourself really earns the respect of your employees and your managers.
