The Snowdome is a good place to work if you want to build up your confidence and communication skills. They pay a fair salary, give you decent hours and you get a lot of bonuses with the job, like a 50% discount off of their great gym, and you get to go onto any session for free as long as you discuss it with a supervisor/manager beforehand.
Pros
50% off of the gym.
Cons
Long hours working in the cold.

For a temporary job it was good money. Easy work with great hours which worked out well along side a-levels. No real issues other than having to be quick preparing for the next sessions.

Treated like slaves they pay a ridiculous low wage for the amount of hard labour they expect to be done for them. The management sit there doing nothing barking out orders.

Management have no clue what they are doing, very stressful, some big changes need to happen there. A lot of unhappy customers complaining about things going wrong out of my reach purely down to management and front desk

This is a great place to work. Having dedicated so many years to this business and thank them very much for the development and the training that i received. The team was amazing and always welcoming from the manger of poolside to the head of the business.

Good place to work but too much favouritism with staff who don’t know what they’re doing but get too friendly with management and get away with everything.

I would describe The Snowdome is a valuable place of employment for both teenagers looking for a part time job (due to its impressive flexibility), or anybody interested in winter sports who would be able to take advantage of the incredibly valuable staff perks.

That being said, there are some obvious operational deficiencies within the company, and it would benefit from some work, and areas of the building are definitely treated preferentially.
Pros
Use of the Ski Slope, Ice Rink and discount Gym Membership
Cons
Bad rate of Pay, issues with management.

Worked on the 2017 Santa’s Winter Wonderland, just to earn some money in the build up to Christmas whilst studying!

Starting with the good:


Absolutely the best job ever from a Social aspect, I’ve kept in touch with people I made friends with when I worked there, It was great for meeting new people


An invite to the March annual ‘Lock in party’ with 4 free drinks tokens as a thank you for working there was a nice touch, as was a lunch organised by my managers on our final shift


My 3 line managers were superb, always looked out for their customers


Free entry to activities


Easy to balance with studies


However the bad:


Minimum wage, for the work we did I personally felt we deserved a little more than minimum wage


The management of the whole business, not my line managers (as previously stated they were faultless) I thought were a little bit unapproachable and condescending who looked down on you a bit


No real structure in terms of lunch hours


Had to pay full price for staff food in the aspen restaurant (£4 for a small portion of skinny fries)


All in all, I’d recommend this job to anyone looking to earn an honest wage who is under 18 or studying at college and sixth form
Pros
Social
Cons
Pay

Nice company to work for, employ lots of young people and give them chances to advance in their career. Most staff are pleasant and professional, pay isnt great but the advancement opportunities are there and a good chance to gain experience to move on elsewhere.
Pros
discounted or free activities, fun environment, advancement opportunities
Cons
cold, low pay rate

The Snowdome is a great place to work as a student and young adult. However the one thing it isn't good for is how much they pay you. but i felt for me that the benefits out weighed the pay.

a typical day at work, for a chef, would be to complete the rise en place, place orders and complete service. however, the lack of man-management skills, from those in superior positions, make the company a difficult place to work.
it does pay well however

A typical day would be a shift, short or long with one other lifeguard, where we kept the pool safe and helped maintain the standard of the pool. I learned a lot of customer service as the members of public in the swimming pool were quite varied with age etc. IT was run very well by the management. Co-workers were friendly and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was the long shifts. The most enjoyable was the people I met there.
Pros
flexible shifts
Cons
long hours
