Your duties in the rental department

Your duties are very similar to sales. With the major difference that all the equipment that goes out the door, will also eventually come back in.

  • Prepare equipment that has been reserved online
  • Issue skis, boards and poles
  • Assist customers in finding the right product category
  • Adjust bindings
  • Issue boots and help customers to try them on
  • Helmet check
  • Issue lift passes
  • Operate the cash register
  • Accept returned equipment
  • Check depot lockers
  • ... and ensure everyone stays in high spirits

Do I need prior experience?

We would be thrilled if you have previous experience in ski rentals, so that terms like "Z-number" and "flex" don't sound like complete gobbledygook to you. If not, you probably belong to the group of lateral entry employees, who are every bit as welcome with us. After all, every year we are looking for robust support for the busy winter season.

I am a lateral-entry employee and began in the ski rental department on the Kitzsteinhorn in 2007. What began as a seasonal job became year-round employment in 2013 at the Areit Valley station. There, I continue to take care of rentals, though I am mainly involved with our online rental booking platform for all locations. If anyone would ask me what the qualifications for this job are, I would say resilience, ability to handle stress, good German and English skills, patience, enjoyment working with people, along with a certain talent for sales.
