How to Answer
Vail Resorts may or may not specify a preferred degree in their job posting. Either way, the interviewer would like to see how your post-secondary education may relate to, or compliment, the position for which you are interested. Discuss the degree or diploma you may have. If you recall some of the related coursework, you can mention those classes as well.

If you do not have any post-secondary education, think back to any online classes you have taken, or on-the-job-training that could be transferable.

The interviewer would like to see that you have the common sense that it takes to deal with guest problems. Working in the customer service industry, and within the hospitality industry, means that you will come across customer complaints on a regular basis. Most will be simple to solve, but some will take additional thinking and reliance on your customer service training. Walk the interviewer through the ways that you would sort out a problem for an unsatisfied guest.

How to Answer
Hiring managers at Vail Resorts may very well receive hundreds of applications per job. If you are lucky enough to land an interview, make some effort to research the opportunity. You don't need to be an expert, but you do need to be knowledgeable about Vail Resorts before your interview. Start by searching the company website and take particular note of any recent news articles, events or contributions they have made to the community. Identify their mission and values. Be sure to complete your response with an expression of enthusiasm for the role.

Question 5 of 30
Have you ever stayed at a Vail Resorts resort? Tell me about your experience.

How to Answer
If you have been lucky enough to have stayed at a Vail Resorts resort, take the time to walk the interviewer through your experience. Because this is an open-ended question, it can be easy to get carried away or ramble out of nervousness. Try focusing on critical areas such as customer service, amenities, food and beverages, excursions, or spa treatments. Keep your answer enthusiastic and give specific examples.

If you have never stayed at a Vail Resorts resort, take the time to comb through some online reviews and tell the interviewer which customer experiences stood out to you the most.
