The Employee Experience
Working at ACE is as much a community as a workplace experience. Many of our staff live on the property or very close by. We don't just work together, we play together as well, enjoying the many opportunities "Wild and Wonderful" West Virginia has to offer. We value staff with a genuine love of the outdoors and the people who share that passion. There are few "typical" workdays so the ability to embrace daily challenges is critical, regardless of department. The staff has the ability to gain training and certifications to become guides in a wide range of outdoor adventure activities.
An ideal candidate has excellent people skills and genuinely enjoys making our guests so glad they were here they can't wait to return. That means having or being eager to learn the skills to do your job, accommodating guests from every conceivable demographic, adapting to daily challenges, gladly cross-training and helping other departments, and savoring all the good to be had here while processing the rare negative experience quickly and putting it behind you. You'll own your mistakes and learn from them and make both your guests and fellow staff grateful you became part of their life.
