Sierra-at-Tahoe hosting two pre-season job fairs

Sierra-at-Tahoe is gearing up for the 2010-11 winter season by hosting two hiring fairs to fill a variety of seasonal positions. Nearly every operational department will be hiring at the two on-site job fairs, including patrol, lift operations, retail, food and beverage, ski and snowboard school and more.

The first job fair will take place at Sierra Resort from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 9 for applicants interested in working in the ski and snowboard school, daycare and competition services. Both skiing and non-skiing positions will include full-time, part-time, and on-call shifts for weekends and holidays.

A non-mandatory, dry-land, pre-season training for ski and snowboard instructors will be offered six weekends from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 16 to Nov. 2. This training includes aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, functional movement screen analysis and corrective exercise, and PSIA and AASI pre-certification prep and clinics. The cost is $99 per participant and lunch is not included.

A second hiring fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 23 at the resort. Most operational departments will be interviewing and hiring seasonal workers including patrol, lift operations, retail, food and beverage, adult ski and snowboard school, Wild Mountain Children’s Center, guest services, parking, rental and repair services and ticket administration.
