    Pros

    The overall environment is more professional than other country clubs; however, the pay remains the same as most Minnesota country clubs, if not less, mysteriously. As a part-time job, it was engaging, since they teach you many ways to be a better banquet server, and it was convenient, since you can work one or two days a week (if that's all you want).

    Cons

    First of all, "the professional nature" of the work environment can seem quite the illusion, on certain shifts, because as much as the management may boast of quality service, they hire many people who tend to be irascible and petulant, as if children, and even if you mention their objectionable behavior to the boss, such people themselves will not alter their behavior (since they've been working there for half-a-decade!). Second, the pay is truly poor (exclusive of tips, it is $6.00 an hour!), and once again, that is in spite of their claims of high quality service. Third, although the job can seem convenient as a part-time job, it ultimately turns out to not be so, once you've worked there for several months; indeed the longer you work there, the more you shall realize that you end up doing clean-up or set-up work a long time after events are over or before they've begun, meaning: you are doing heavy-labor or tedious labor for $6.00 an hour, which is unforgivable! I could go on, seriously, but I'll leave you with those three cons.

    Advice to Management

    First, stop touting your "high quality service, your excellent service, your best country club service in Minnesota," and instead start monitoring the individual behavior of your employees -- so that you have an accurate understanding of your service. Second, stop putting eight to twelve banquet servers on one shift, only so you can collectively tip them less, while paying them a below-minimum-wage hourly wage. Third, be more aware of the petulancy and vulgarity and general lack of discipline among your employees, and by doing so, seek to reduce and eventually eliminate it (which won't happen, trust me); after all, how enthusiastic can an employee possible remain when he arrives to work to find an obese, hung-over, and grouchily inarticulate young-adult complaining about wanting to take a smoke break, an hour into the shift? Answer: marginally enthusiastic.
