9/14/2010 12:48:00 PM So interview 1 went over good, it was a basic screen call with a lot of the questions you would expect:  What are your strengths, how to handle a stressful situation... that kinda stuff.  So if all goes well I should be hearing from someone else within a few weeks.  Thanks everyone for the advice, fingers crossed for a job.
9/10/2010 10:14:40 PM Yeh lots of good info going around, thanks everyone.  I didn't expect this. In answer to your question, I am going full time and trying to get employee housing (if they have that in Heavenly, I know Vail does...)  1 other thing, my cousin has a wedding that I am in on Dec 19 in Florida, should I mention this in the interview or wait? Thanks all!
9/9/2010 9:52:09 PM Hey All,      I have an interview on Monday with Heavenly for a job as a snowboard instructor.  I am not certified and have never worked in the industry, but have been riding  and teaching a lot of friends for 4 years.  I love snowboarding and want to be surrounded by it for a season before a career job starts.      Anyone ever worked or been interviewed by a resort for an instructor job.  What should I expect to be asked and what do I need to be prepared.  As always, any and all help is appreciated,
9/6/2010 10:02:18 PM Best.  Post.  Ever. You win, this was like reading through a coffee table book!
9/4/2010 8:34:07 PM anyone else look to see if ss.com (as posted by OP) actually gets you to sierrasnowboard.com?
9/3/2010 1:54:49 PM Anyone else think that the new Nano is an absolute terrible device?  WTF would you want a touchscreen on a nano for?  That was the only good thing about it, switching songs while it was still in your pocket, great for snowboarding.  Now I gotta take it out, take off my glove to change a damn song!! Not to mention it looks pretty awful with the conflicting round and sharp corners.  Boo Apple, you tried to hard with this one, KEEP IT SIMPLE!!

7/28/2010 9:55:40 PM Is a case a big deal?  No Is the phone defective without a case on a big deal?  Yes
7/28/2010 1:47:02 PM Other phones also don't have a giant "Touch here for receptions problems" X on them.  Plus, on the iPhone, you can reproduce this problem with your pinky!  It's not a common problem on the phones Apple showed. There is a reason  this problem became breaking news with the iPhone: 1.  iPhone 4 is tremendously popular.  2.  It's easy to disrupt the antenna 3.  Apple handled it like little kids on a playground           World:  "Did you design a bad antenna?"             Apple:   "They did it, too"            World:  "You didn't answer my question..."            Apple:  "Have a free bumper! (rubber band)"         Apple released bumpers to protect the antenna because it knowingly produced a defective system.  It had to get the phone out of the door, and the quick fix was a piece of rubber they priced at a ridiculous $30 so it would seem like Apple was giving you a great deal when they gave them out for free.
7/26/2010 8:24:49 PM This is by far the greatest time to be looking for a smartphone.  There are so many features and options out and coming very soon.  Here is how I break it down: iPhone:  The simplest of all options.  If you are not someone who likes to customize and fully control your things, then Apple might be ok because big brother will be in control. My mom can use an iPhone pretty good, and she is awful when it comes to computers, so take  that as either a positive because its so simple or a negative because it is so simple.  For me, that lack of options kills.  You have ONE phone running iOS, while others (android or  WP7) have multiple phone choices.  If you want a bigger screen or physical keyboard, too bad,  you don't get options.  Also, and this is only opinion, iPhone has been twiddling it's thumbs in terms of innovation due to  its success of the first phone and knowing that anything they out out will sell well.  Interface is so basic after 4 years!  No widgets that update and the worst notification system of any smartphone, come on Apple!  I have a 3G, loved  it for a while but am now bored to death with it.  iPhone 4 really has nothing attractive enough for me to upgrade:  FaceTime is cool for maybe 3 times, design is good but disappears with the "required" case, and it is already behind the curve of fresh android devices. Android:  Similar and opposite  to iPhone at the same time, if  that makes sense.  You will see many similarities in the interface: rows of icons that represent apps, app store with more apps than you know what to do with, and swiping to change layouts.  Android is more open to 3rd party innovation than Apple is and will  inevitably take over as the App king simply because more phones running android will be in peoples pockets.  With Android, you  get a lot of options for phones:  Do you want a physical keyboard, larger screen, and /or fast processor?  You can pick and choose.  Android is a bit more complicated because it allows for customization and you have to spend more time getting it to fit around your individual needs.  It does true multi-tasking, which is great but again, you need to set it up to work for you or else it will kill your battery life.  Widgets are great to have, you can have an icon that updates on your  home-screen, meaning you can see weather or news updates without having to open the app.  I have messed around with Android's a lot and really like them, I am a big fan of having a device that I can customize and does not look like everyone else.  Plus Google has some amazing features that just aren't available on other phones. Windows Phone 7 (WP7):  Wild-card bitches!  Yeeee-hawww!!  This, I am most excited about.  Coming this holiday season, Windows is at it with a competely new mobile operating system that differentiates itself from others.  They see big money in the mobile world and are going at it.  Reminds me when they introduces Xbox against Nintendo and Sony, and look how that turned out in a short 2 generations!  Not all is known about WP7, but some interesting things:  Xbox Live integration, Microsoft Office, and Zune music streaming.  Wow, that is a lot to take in that I don't think anyone else can offer.   The homescreen is Hubs, which is interactive, updating icons, hard to explain so just look it up. I  think WP7 will be a breathe of fresh air in the smartphone world, though it will not be perfect right out of the gate.  Remember, it took Apple 4 generations to get to where they are now.  So in time, and I expect that to be within  months of release, WP7 will  match all the feature of iOS and Android and still include features that others simply can't replicate.  You also get the option of many different phones running WP7, just like  Android, so all those pro's apply here,  too. So my advice is for anyone is wait if you can, at least until WP7 emerges in a few months.  It will be great to see 3 big dogs battle it out, with the winner being us!  Let this iPhone pass (it's not that cool, trust me), watch Android develop and wait for the birth of WP7 before buying.
