    Former Employee - Outside Service Personnel  in  Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Outside Service Personnel in Austin, TX

    I worked at Barton Creek Resort and Spa part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Funny coworkers, getting to pick the range in peace, tip $$ from well-off members and guests, the Creekside restaurant serves up top notch ranch dressing and hot dogs. Free golf. Great job to have if you're also going to school. Lots of good looking women running around, especially at the pool. Occasionally you see someone famous. Most of the time nobody is breathing down your neck.

    Cons

    Management usually sucks, working long shifts on weekends and early opening hours. Tournaments can be rough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become better managers.

    I have been working at Barton Creek Resort and Spa part-time

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working here. My supervisors are friendly and helpful, plus want to see you succeed and will set you up with the opportunities to do so (at least in the spa department).

    Cons

    For most jobs, you have to start out as part time for at least 90 days until you can go full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The spa business is generally catty but keep diffusing it as much as possible. We are a team.

    Disappointed in lack of growth opportunities and lack of yearly raises or 401k matching

    I have been working at Barton Creek Resort and Spa

    Pros

    Great golf courses, employee discount on rooms and KSL Resort stays

    Cons

    No support from upper level management, limited growth opportunities, lot of micromanagement, spending hours on solutions to problems and nothing is resolved, unproductive meetings, entitled members, a lot of miscommunication between departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better incentives to employees, follow up on promises during interviews, clearly define expectations, TRAIN your employees and support them

    Pros

    Fun, laid back environment with really nice club members, the staff is all very friendly and fun to work with, and most have been there along time

    Cons

    You have to wait 90 days before you get any of the benefits, and you have to wait 6 months in your current postion before you can transfer to a different department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think we could make the Tejas dining room and formal room better looking, and we should have assigned seating

    I worked at Barton Creek Resort and Spa

    Pros

    Worked in guest services during college. The hours were extremely flexible and at the time the money for a 'college job' couldn't be beat.

    Cons

    Management was hit or miss. Some where considerate. Others took the customer is always right mentality too far and rarely backing the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assist all employees from top to bottom. This will create more of a team environment, instead of the warden/prison feeling Barton Creek has.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Austin, TX

    I worked at Barton Creek Resort and Spa

    Pros

    The people, for the most part, are awesome. My supervisor was THE BEST man I could ever have as a boss. The pay was real good and the grounds and surroundings are gorgeous.

    Cons

    The upper echelon of management were not the best to work with. The clientele are a little hard to deal with as well. I'm convinced that the more money that people have, the less likely they are to be nice and friendly. Beware of their benefits package - cost FAR too much money for what you received. The deductibles were through the roof.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more accessible to your employees. Have more of an "open door" policy. You guys are so un-approachable it's sad. You have good people working under you. You should be more willing to let them run through their paces.
