Rocky Mountaineer recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People in 2020

Vancouver, BC (February 17, 2020) - Rocky Mountaineer has been recognized as one of the best places to work in Canada as a young person starting their career. According to Mediacorp, this special designation recognizes employers offering the nation's best workplaces and programs for young people just starting their careers. Further, the employers on this list are leaders in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations.

As part of its efforts to attract and retain top talent, Rocky Mountaineer offers a diverse range of career opportunities, competitive salaries with bonuses, a great benefits package and RRSP matching program.

New recruits receive two full days of onboarding seminars to familiarize them with the culture as well as Vertical Mindset Training, which reinforces a positive approach to all aspects of work and life.

“Rocky Mountaineer is very different,” says Kimi Asami, a Continuous Improvement Specialist who graduated from McGill University in 2018, who joined Rocky Mountaineer shortly after graduating. “I’m given lot of trust and responsibility in the work that I do, and I have learned so much in working with different departments.”

Rocky Mountaineer has a full-time workforce of more than 300 people located at head office in Vancouver, the rail yard in Kamloops, and globally in outside sales roles. This figure increases to more than 800 people during the train’s operating season from April to October with positions added onboard the trains and in Vancouver, Kamloops, Whistler, Quesnel and the Canadian Rockies at the overnight destinations. The seasonal roles are highly coveted with an exceptional employee retention rate of 72 per cent returning team members each season.

Winners are chosen based on the programs and initiatives they offer to attract and retain younger workers. For more information, as to why Rocky Mountaineer was chosen visit: https://reviews.canadastop100.com/top-employer-rocky-mountaineer#young
