    I worked at American Junior Golf Association as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for travel, networking with parents and golfers, networking with top professionals in the golf industry, excellent corporate mission and values.

    Cons

    Long, long hours, lack of performance evaluation, lack of openness to innovation and creative problem solving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though you see a lot of new employees each summer, most are actually interested in receiving constructive criticism and improving through out the summer. We also appreciate when you reach out to ask our opinion on everyday TTP's.

    I worked at American Junior Golf Association as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The best part of this job is the travel. You get the opportunity to visit beautiful parts of the country, interact with families, and be outside.

    Cons

    Each tournament is run by a different tournament director, many of whom have never held a management position. This leads to drastically different work environments from week to week. The company emphasizes it is a nonprofit, but is very wasteful with its ($10 million+) budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting money.

    I worked at American Junior Golf Association as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing chance to travel and see beautiful golf courses. Also get to meet the next generation of golfers.

    Food, travel (even for IRW), and lodging paid for

    Get to drive the trucks!

    Some of the full-time staff are awesome people to work with, very supportive through the summer

    Get a bunch of free golf clothes/shoes/sunglasses for uniforms

    Cons

    Crazy Hours, with little time off

    Some of the full-time staff are clique-y, fratty, play favorites (hence the title of this review)

    Some unethical behavior that wasn't reprimanded by full-time staff.

    they implement way too many rules for interns and do not allow any freedom

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop making so many rules for interns. Your limiting their potential.

    I worked at American Junior Golf Association as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Was able to travel all over the northeast working junior golf events. Got to stay at great resorts and meet wonderful people.

    Cons

    You have to basically live out of a suitcase for the duration of the internship. You travel from week to week with very little time off.

    I worked at American Junior Golf Association

    Pros

    Great golf courses, amazing staff, opportunity to travel the United States, acquire multiple pieces of nice golf apparel, build lifelong friendships

    Cons

    Long hours working at least six days a week, on the road for 13 straight weeks living out of hotels and with host families

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping interns motivated is the key, especially through the last few weeks of the internship. Otherwise, unbelievable opportunity provided by your organization.
