Please read through the information below carefully before you apply. Applications that are missing information will not be processed. Our Employment Opportunities page lists all of our current openings, with links that take you to job descriptions and application buttons. All applications must be submitted through our online application site.

What do I need to submit with my application?

Cover Letter and Resume: Please ensure your resume is up-to-date and contains your current email address and telephone number. Resumes must be uploaded in Word or .pdf formats.

Application Video: We like to meet all of our candidates in person, but understand that this is difficult for non-locals. KHMR is looking for candidates who represent our Five Guiding Principles of Guest Experience, Employee Experience, Growth and Ingenuity, Financial Responsibility, and Community Relationships. As it is a challenge for us to assess these qualities just on paper, we are requesting applicants to create a video application for our review and consideration. Videos should be 60 seconds or less and should demonstrate why you want to work at KHMR and why you are the best person for the job. Videos must be uploaded to YouTube or vimeo etc. and the link to your video should be included in your resume or cover letter. Please note that video applications are not mandatory, but will help you stand out amongst the thousands of resumes we receive annually!

Returning Staff

If you have been employed at KHMR within the past 12 months, we will send you a return application for the upcoming season with a deadline for early application.

Am I eligible to Work at KHMR?

In order to be eligible to work at KHMR, you must possess the following:

Social Insurance Number (SIN): Every employee must present a valid Social Insurance Number prior to commencing work.  International employees must also provide a copy of their open Canadian Work Permit.

Valid Work Permit: All applicants must be legally entitled to work in Canada prior to accepting an offer of employment. Unfortunately, we do not provide sponsorship for seasonal applicants. More information about the Canadian Work Permit process can be found on the Canada Immigration and Citizenship (CIC) website at http://www.cic.gc.ca.

Canadian Bank Account

Our payroll system is done electronically and we require a void cheque or direct deposit form before an employee starts work. To receive a direct deposit form or void cheque by direct deposit, every employee must have a Canadian bank account. In Golden, the local banks are CIBC and The Columbia Credit Union.

Active Email Address

Even though some employees receive a KHMR email address, it is a requirement for all employees to have an active, personal email account. We use this email to send you important recruitment documentation including your offer of employment. We also use this email as a way to communicate updated resort information, such as employee events, through our employee newsletter.

Winter Sports School: Current CASI/CSIA certification is required for all Winter Sports School applicants. We also accept international certifications that are equal to a CASI/CSIA certification.

For more details please see Conditions of Employment.

Recruitment Process

Have you ever wondered what happens to your application after you complete the online process? At KHMR all applications are reviewed by the Employee Experience team for both a fit for the position and overall fit with the resort. Department Managers are then forwarded successful applications and will connect directly with the candidates they wish to interview. In-person interviews are conducted for local candidates, and Skype interviews are held for non-local residents.  If the interview was successful and positive references are provided, an offer of employment will be made. If the interview is unsuccessful, you will be notified  and may be considered for an alternate position with the resort.

Competition for jobs at the resort is high, so make sure you do whatever you can to stand out in your application. If you have been referred to the resort through a current or former employee, please inform us in your cover letter.

Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we regret that we are unable to give individual updates on application status. Once a position has been filled, it will be removed from the website. All applications are handled in confidence in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
