#1  Mark Warner vs equity?  17 Oct '14 at 20:03
Hey,

I have 2 job offers for this season working as a kitchen assistant/kitchen porter, one with Mark warner and one with equity.

Does anyone know which is the better option? Neither have specified which resort yet, so this decision is on reputation of the company's. I've read good and bad about both but still can't decide.

Mark Warner is more upmarket and luxury and equity is more for school holidays?

Any information and or opinions are very welcome!

Thanks

Equity and Skiworld are entirely different companies

I would say equity. Heard quite a lot of negative feedback from Mark Warner

I was in the same situation just this weekend, ended up with 4 offers and I went for Equity in the end.

Don't know if this will help (as I've never worked for them before so I don't have experience of them as such) but I went with them as...

- quite big company, you know for job security type reasons! Also later in life might come in handy

- School trips seem kind of good to work for as kids go to bed that wee bit earlier, so possibly less late late nights

Hope that's helps at all!

I was in exactly the same situation - decided to go with Equity

I know a few friends that had gone with Mark Warner and had given me bad feedback on the company, and Equity was offering me a better job as a Deputy Manager so it wasn't really a hard decision to make!

That sounds nice! I'm off to Montgenevre on the 7th! It's a bit on the small side but I'll be right on the border of Italy

I wish you an amazing season kezia
