Crystal Mountain named “Best and Brightest” company to work for

Crystal Mountain has been named one of “West Michigan’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For,” further distinguishing the four-season resort as a phenomenal place for leisure and business travel, but also a career.

The National Association for Business Resources identified best Human Resource practices and provided benchmarking for companies that continue to be leaders in employment standards. Crystal Mountain was judged on compensation, benefits, employee engagement and retention, work-life balance, community initiatives and strategic company performance, among other initiatives.

“Not that long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ might have been an open-office design with a stocked fridge and a game room. But when you’re in the hospitality and leisure business, the company culture, how we treat each other and our guests, our training programs and all the opportunities for growth and mobility at Crystal Mountain really set us apart,” Chief Operating Office John Melcher said.

Melcher noted that one of Crystal Mountain’s values is fun.

“It’s the magic in our business,” Melcher added.

Crystal Mountain has career opportunities across the resort for full- and part-time positions. For a listing of jobs and how to apply, please visit
