    Great culture, lots of good experience, but a lot of the promises that were made regarding advancement policies lacking.

    Assistant Golf Professional (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsGreat training, lots of exposure to technology and different aspects of the golf business.

    ConsAdvancement policies were not consistent, and promises of advancement and career growth were just a means to continue working for mediocre salaries.

    A good introduction to the world of sales

    Corporate Trainer (Former Employee)
    Knoxville, TN

    ProsGreat people - The President really cares about doing thing the right way and the career guys are all very helpful and supportive

    Opportunity - You can and will move up extremely rapidly if you produce

    Experience - The job offers a good entrance point in the world of sales. It really is all kind of the same stuff at the core of it.

    You will become better at talking to strangers if you stay at TPC for any length of time.

    The pay: this one is definitely a double edged sword, but I've seen people average anywhere from just above minimum wage to 30/hour so the ceiling is at least more in your control.

    ConsThe commute: It can absolutely be brutal. Travel can extend over a large swath of East Tennessee.

    The pay: It is commission. You only get it if the product actually gets installed and cancellation rate is woefully high (~25%). This can happen if the customer cancels before install or if the trees preclude the satellite from reaching the dish. Often times, the "ceiling" mentioned above gets all the publicity in the office, but the reality most people find themselves in is much closer to the minimum wage "floor".

    The hours: Tuesday and Wednesday off, the rest on. 11-8 Monday/Thursday, 11-7 Friday/Saturday, 10-6 Sunday

    The office: happens before the above hours, no pay, no possibility of earning money. The "pump up" sales speeches can get repetitive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing.

    Job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThis was a fun job and I thoroughly enjoyed my time here.

    ConsPay was not the best but the environment makes up for that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease consider updating your bathrooms. They are out of date and gross.

    Good place to work while completing school.

    Outside Operations (Current Employee)
    Valencia, CA

    ProsFree Golf at a challenging and fun course. Easy workload which basically all revolves around the members. Good group of people to work with make the time go by quicker. Hours are split into two groups of openers and closers. Openers are 6am-2pm while closers are 11am-7pm.

    ConsPay is minimum wage plus tips. Normally that sounds fine however tips due to the economy have dwindled largely. What used to be walking away with $40-$80 in tips a night became $10-$30.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI feel outside operations deserve a larger base pay being as they are the "front lines" of keeping the members happy and coming back.

    It was a good summer job.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe money was good, especially the tips. Co-workers were energetic and enjoyed their jobs. It was nice to interact with different departments each day.

    ConsAlthough money was good, since TPC is a corporation, they did not like to institute new rules pertaining to our location.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet employees have a say in what new changes occur instead of just listening to what corporate had to add.
