Employee Testimonials

I loved working for the Reid Ranch each summer because I was able to work outside surrounded by beautiful mountains.  I also was able to meet people from around Utah and the country.  While working at Reid Ranch I developed my customer service skills and learned the meaning of hard work. I also learned how to develop effective managerial skills under great pressure.  I enjoyed working with the other employees and am still stay in contact with some of them today.  Working for Reid Ranch gave me a good foundation for my future employment opportunities.


I could not have asked for a better place to start my work experience than Reid Ranch.  As most 16 year olds do, I started out in a front line position doing maintenance, concessions, and grounds crew work.  Over the course of time as my knowledge, skills, and business experience grew an opportunity to prove myself as a leader came.  Managing 16 - 18 employees during the summer, learning to create business plans and execute them, and maintaining high guest service standards could not have been better experience to prepare me for other job opportunities that came my way.  Now 10 years later and with management positions at The Walt Disney Company, SeaWorld, and Deer Valley Resort under my belt, the sky is the limit for my career opportunities!

 

Reid Ranch, best choice I ever made for a Summer/High School Job.  The Reid family are extremely hard working, and they do an amazing job at every aspect of keeping the Ranch an amazing experience for the guests, and employees as well.  I learned a lot of new skill sets during the summer at Reid Ranch things such as:  Providing phenomenal customer service, cleaning pools, working with horses, building fences, it’s very diverse.  There’s always something new on the job every day that keeps it entertaining.  The food is outstanding, the chef’s were top notch.  The chance to be in nature for three months and experience the Reid’s property and the surrounding beauty of the Uinta Mountains was relaxing and enlightening.  There are memories from this previous year that I will never forget, and I hope to return this summer for another season full of adventure and fun!  Make sure you’re ready to work, and to work hard.


Working for Reid Ranch was such a unique and amazing experience.  I was the general manager at Reid Ranch for four years and worked as an activities and maintenance employee for a few years prior to that.  Not only did my Reid Ranch work experience help me improve my operational and managerial skills, it also has set me up for truly great jobs for the past 12 years.  I applied for an internship with Walt Disney Co. and they were so impressed with my Reid Ranch managerial experience that they accepted me right away.  Because I was given the opportunity to manage 15 employees as well as oversee the ranch during the largest group Reid Ranch has ever seen of 500+ guests at one time, I have had nothing but success in getting my MBA and moving upward in my career in the financial industry.  I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start my working experience as a young adult and then through college.  Thanks Reid Ranch!
