Making the Cut
A little preparation goes a long way in helping you stand out from the crowd. We are looking for the best of the best and we work hard to make sure that our hiring decisions result in a good fit for all parties involved.
At the start of the interview process, you may receive an invitation to an “Audition" or group interview. Don’t worry, you won’t be asked you to sing, dance, or eat fire. It’s not that kind of audition. An Audition at Gunstock is essentially a group interview. If invited to an Audition, you will have the opportunity to interact with members of the Gunstock management team, as well as other qualified candidates.
Candidates who successfully make it through the group interview will be scheduled for a second interview with the appropriate hiring manager. While we can’t give you all the answers to the test, we can give you some tips for a successful interview at Gunstock:
- Be on time. Punctuality rules. Never arrive late to an interview; it immediately puts you at a disadvantage.
- Be prepared. If you’re coming to the resort for an interview, make sure you know where you’re going and who you are scheduled to meet with. It always helps to familiarize yourself with our company and requirements of the job you have applied for before the interview.
- Dress to impress. You never have a second chance to make a good first impression. We certainly don’t expect you to show up in a suit and tie, but “business casual” attire is always a good rule of thumb. Jeans are also okay, as long as they are clean and free of holes and rips.
- Ask questions. It shows us that you are really interested and helps us provide you with important information that you can’t get elsewhere.
- Be yourself. We are looking for people who are friendly, enthusiastic and professional in all kinds of circumstances. When it’s a good fit, what started out as a seasonal job can turn into a long-term commitment; in fact, most of our seasonal employees return season after season!
