    I worked at ClubCorp

    Pros

    I worked at anthem country club in anthem az, the club is good. People I worked with were awesome and all got along and was nice.

    Cons

    Upper management has no clue and should have positions they are in! Had crazy ideas to improve club and events but didn't realize what those would cause or how they would backfire! Never promoted or gave raises to the great, hard working employees. Gave promotions, raises to the crappy, lazy ones. hard working employees would either get in trouble or written up or flat out fired! Was a part time employee but worked well over 40+ hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the hard workers and leave the lazy POS works to screw up. Listen to employees instead of thinking your right and tell the employees how to do there job when they know very very well how to do there job

    Clubcorp was a challenging company to work for, it often lacked direction, but the core company has potential.

    I worked at ClubCorp

    Pros

    The company has strong core clubs, needs to focus on those and divest nonperforming assets. Reasonable perks - free golf, free or discounted food.

    Cons

    Lacked a good training system. Many legacy employees. Unfair expectations for some positions, 70 hour work weeks were expected, 80 hours was not uncommon. Questionable compensation practices - though this area was improving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of your locations are very seasonal, investing in regional support staff that can focus on a quality training process would pay dividends for member satisfaction, employee morale, and decreased turnover and in turn long term profit growth.

    I have been working at ClubCorp full-time

    Pros

    Hours and work life balance, opportunity for advancement, friendly environment, great membership and hard working staff

    Cons

    Pay scale needs to be reviewed. New employees earn more than tenured employees for lower positions. Accounting runs this business too stringently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review operations from a line level and not from a corporate office. What looks good on paper does not always work logistically.

    I have been working at ClubCorp part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay,often above average for competitive market, opportunities for advancement, and decent members so customer service is a breeze... most of the time.

    Cons

    Favoritism is outrageous. Employees were given positions over more qualified employees based on their status as a member, employees were given positions over more qualified employees by knowing the bosses or knowing parts of their family. Absolutely no reprimand for bad behavior and absolutely zero structure. Employees are thrown into their positions with no training and are expected to know exactly what to do. Senior management always moves, never stays for longer than three years, making it difficult to build relationships and have standards when it comes to how work is completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair. Be better. Stop hiring members as employees it is a major conflict of interest. Watch clubs more closely, the "surprise" visits do not work. Notice errors yourself before you reprimand, do not do it on account of what you hear. Train your employees better and stop hiring within your inner circle; employees notice it and it makes the club look bad to potential employees. Keep senior staff around if they have good status and people like them; do not move them because they might make you more money elsewhere; if they are doing well there, keep them there!

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

    Pros

    Networking and building friendships with members which leads to better opportunities.

    Cons

    Completely missing the boat on treatment of employees. You are made to feel like you are easily replaced with another warm body. Department heads, managers and regionals are only concerned with his or her bonus. You have to get a promotion to get a raise. No personal growth. Very expensive health insurance. Lean staffing most of the time. Disorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Don't make "acquired" employees feel less than by offering bogus pay and unattainable incentives. Look at the culture that your General Managers and department heads are establishing in your clubs for employee "partners" because the partner vibe is not there. Look at the training and negativity that is in the clubs. You need a reality check on how to establish the feeling that employees are valued.

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

    Pros

    I am still searching for the "What's in it for me?" I guess the only thing I can say is that event sales is a fun type of sales, but that is more industry related than specific to ClubCorp. Other than that, it is providing me with a salary, although a menial one, for the tasks expected of me, while I search for another job.

    Cons

    Numbers Driven to the extreme and unrealistic expectations. Everything has a report. Even our reports have reports. You spend so much time doing paper work and reports you have hardly any time to actually sell and/or execute events which is unfortunate considering a large bulk of our compensation is commission. Salary is a joke and their commission is a smoke and mirrors game. They scammed me into signing a job offer and now that I see they weren't truthful regarding my compensation. They were deliberately deceitful which I have since realized is company wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Laying off a ton of people the week before Christmas is not how to Win Friends and Influence People.
    -Your Benefits are a joke. If you are going to offer low salaries and low commissions, you need to at least have decent Health Insurance or matching 401K.
