    I have been working at ClubCorp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free golf but never have time to play. A few employees. I consider friends.

    Cons

    Low pay. With no raises ever! No appreciation for hard work. Drama, favoritism that allows non productive employees do what they want. They steal from the company. While they try to get you fired because you know what they are doing. Not holding people accountable for their negligence or not doing their job.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people that you have been told repeatedly that steal, come and go as they please and feed alcohol to minors on the job. As well as department heads making abscene comments to young female employees at the club. Show appreciation to the dedicated employees. That want the club to thrive and make a grow . Stop the favoritism and notice what the people you don't see making a difference. And random drug screens so you can get rid of the trash!

    Pros

    My particular location has always worked very well with my schedule, but that has everything to do with my direct management and nothing to do with corporate.

    Cons

    They have slashed all of our pay by more than half to keep their "button line" anywhere close to good. Constantly making promise about promotions and raises they have never once kept.

    I worked at ClubCorp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There Literally are No pros to working for ClubCorp. If you worked for Sequoia Golf before ClubCorp took over then you know you work with good people. Sequoia knew what they were doing when they hired people. They made sure everyone was a good fit which meant that Sequoia was more of a family until ClubCorp took over.

    Cons

    Benefits and pay suck! No 401k matching. No raises. No chance of advancement. Once ClubCorp took over, the ship sank just like the Titanic. "A bad manager can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation".

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of the employees, pay them enough to live, recognize those that work hard and continue to take on more job responsibilities willingly and without complaint. Give raises, don't make Sequoia employees feel like the bottom of the barrel or step kids. Sequoia was far more advanced and capable before ClubCorp. Now that CC took over everything is going in reverse. Stop blowing employees off and stop procrastinating in your management responsibilities. You obviously did not think things through when buying Sequoia Golf and definitely bit off more than you can chew. Eliminate some of the worthless conference calls and just send an email. Sequoia employees have far more clubs to handle than ClubCorp and don't have time to waste on useless calls that can definitely be sent in an email. Also, I continue to differentiate between Club Corp and Sequoia because that is how the company differentiate's. We are not one company according to club Corp. Club Corp management is rude, nasty, condescending, and resentful of Sequoia employees

    I worked at ClubCorp part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great teammates. Wonderful members who truly enjoy a great club experience. Free golf on Mondays when the club is closed.

    Cons

    Working 7 days a week for low pay. Company uses tip share system where the member service fee is split between the company and the employees. ClubCorp actually KEEPS part of the service charge! Members think they are tipping you for your service, but they are not! You are giving ClubCorp extra money! Horrible benefits Bad senior management . Run.... don't walk.... run away from ClubCorp

    Advice to Management

    Work a day in our shoes, and live off what you pay us and you will understand why we are leaving in droves.

    I worked at ClubCorp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice, updated country club atmosphere, a few nice/empathetic members, great employee partner meal/card plan

    Cons

    Ever since ClubCorp went PUBLIC, they are ONLY concerned with NONSENSICAL reporting and audits. Senior staff is ALWAYS under a microscope. The focus USED to be "members first". Very limited training~ "sink or swim" approach and condescending Home Office, all around. Pathetic raise system (a co-worker at my club FINALLY received a $1 increase after 15 years...), BlueCross/BlueShield medical is a JOKE..

    Advice to Management

    Stop the "yea yea yea"s/procrastination when it comes to important things getting completed NOW, make a job/position that is for 1 person~ not a 3 person job

    I worked at ClubCorp part-time

    Pros

    $10 per hour wage plus tips that are split evenly between coworkers/ beautiful location by Willow bend mall in lower Plano area

    Cons

    Upon arriving for my first day, filling out forms and providing paperwork, I was already completely turned off to the company. Within minutes of entering their office I was introduced to a future co-worker who spoke freely to a manager in front of me about how "the cart girls at the other club are promiscuous" and gossiped about coworkers I hadn't even met yet. I tried to be understanding and assumed the co-worker might be a manager favorite and therefore allowed to get away with saying more than others. That was until other managers began speaking the same way. One employee spoke about another new hire saying she "may not make a good cook but she looked cheap" and another coworker asked if he'd even want her for free. I can't express my disbelief for the immaturity for a company. If you are a female who desires even decent respect, I urge you to look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Hire men who aren't sexist and women who don't condone that behavior.
